adding a dring to the top for winch hook storage?

are you adding in a towpoint of somekind? my big mistake has allways build the winch bumper than figure in a tow point. i need to strart by focousing on winch placement (as I do) and then go straight to tow point before bumper design

his upper winch hookup w/ just be for hooking the winch line to...not for recovery.

do you have any plans on clevis mounts or anything for D-rings?? sometime or another you'll need to double your line back to your rig or hook someone else's winch to you....

like mine, i have a winch mount plus frame connected clevis mounts for D-rings.

I will eventually have some kind of recovery point. Was talking about that with my buddy today, about making me one on his plasma table.
