    where to buy d-ring mounting tabs?

    Are there any good places around the east end of Toronto to buy d-ring mounting tabs?

    I was thinking of checking out pa, it would be nice if I can find something reasonable that is closer than whitby.

    If I had something to cut it with, and a drill press to make the holes with that wouldn't take me more than a day then I would do that.

    Angle grinder and cordless drill might do the trick, but being as I am lazy I don't want to spend my time finding out.

    Or closer is Jim or Tim

    I don't like the weld on, at the very least go for a weld through. The best IMO is a weld through with a lip just for extra piece of mind.

    I was thinking of welding them through the bumper:
    1 weld tabs to plate
    2 pass tab through hole in bumper
    3 weld plate to back of bumper
    4 weld around tab on front of bumper

    would that do the trick?

    It's kind of hard to explain but here goes. The clevis tabs should be 1"x2 1/2 bar 3/4 or 13/16 hole drilled in the end just like curts in your thread. Now instead of inserting them through the bumper I am going to use a piece of 4x4 x 3/4 thick flat bar and slot it in the centre to insert the 3/4 tab into. Weld both front and back and them grind the back smooth. Then all you have to do is weld the 4x4 flat bar with the tab in it onto your bumper all the way around 2 or three passes translates into 48 inches of weld. If you like you can drill some 1 inch holes and plug weld them too. As long as your bumper is at least 1/4 wall tube that would be just as if not stronger than inserted through the bumper. Other option is rent a mag drill and drill through the bumper because that is the only way to get the holes to line up perfect.

    hope this makes sense

    ps. pm you back.
