d ring mounts

I am building a new rear bumper. I have some Weld on d-ring mounts laying around, and i was wondering if it would be strong enough for a recovery point. The bumper is 2x4" and 3/8" thick. If I do this, I would have a professional weld it for me. Anyone use these mounts, or have any input. These are the d rings that i have sitting around. Would these work?

I use these:

No problems with using them as recovery points so long as the bumper is securely fastened to the frame.

I have had two of those break on the car trailer, with just a vehicle starpped down. The trailer was only about a year old when it happen, so its not like rust was a factor.

I have two pn my rear bumper of my Jeep as recover points. Yanked on them a few times and no prob with them. Just make sure there is a good weld on them as long as the bumper is weld and bolted on as well

x2 some are just a piece of round stock bent in a D ring if you weld the two ends together you should be ok .I would not use as a strap point but winch point should be ok

on my old front bumper I made clevis mounts out of two pieces of 3/8" angle welded into a "T" and put a 1" hole in the center. they mounted to the bumper centered on the frame horns with 4 grade 8 bolts each. never failed. I wouldn't use them on anything over a 32" tire. with the install of the 35's I made a rectangular tube bumper with 1" thick weld thru mounts.
