    Anyone know a good way to mount D-shackles like this : https://www.amazon.com/Ring-Shackle...9865312&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=d-shackle&psc=1

    to the front of our trucks? I don't have the tow hook anymore as I removed my stock bumper and have a tube bumper, this is my truck: IMG_20180616_182448.jpg

    I was wondering if anyone found a good way to mount 2 D-ring shackles to the front of these trucks for recovery. Pictures are appreciated.

    If anyone is interested in following my build: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiqZHFVc-wXcJo7A1rpUIdA?view_as=subscriber

    Look up some shackle mounts and weld them. Trail gear makes some that I had welded on
