Made my own $20 Jeep JK rear frame rail D rings using harborfreight hitch mount D anchors. They are bolted for now, but will be welded too. I'm really happy with the look, utility and I feel safe actually using them for recovery. DM me if you want details or measurements for drilling the holes. The method I used utilized already in place frame rail holes.

I had the stock plastic bumper bit was banging it on rocks and hated the look. I didn't want to spend $$$ on an aftermarket, so I just took it off. It's actually nice without it as I have more angle of approach and utilizing the frame crossmember for magnetized goodies such as LED lights is useful.

I just hated the look of the open frame rails. Adding these D rings filled them in and I think it looks great to my eyes now!

I have the plastic as well. I might see where they line up and cut through. I’m not a big bumper guy either. I may just pull the plastic and go from there.

The rear bumper bolts to those frame rails. You may not be able to run these d-rings if you cut the bumper. But check it out and see what you think. If you need the measurements for where I drilled the hole on the hitch let me know.
