Gauging Interest In Rear Swivel Clevis Tabs

I am getting ready to pull the trigger on having my Wolf Fab Rear Swivel Clevis Tabs milled. These will slide into the holes in the rear crossmember and bolt on the back side. Another option is to have a quick release pin so you can pull them out if necessary. The tab will accept standard 5/8" D-rings (3/4" pin) with a 10,000lb working load. Cost will be about $100 a pair SHIPPED. Clevic tabs NOT included. The prototype photoe below is actually about 3" shorter that the final verison.

If you are interested, please chime in.

Depending on the Diameter, I am interested. I don't need them for the rear, but if they will fit the openings in my front bumper, I would like a set.

I have not decided on final material just yet. They will either be held in place by the provided grade 8 hardware, or some type of removable pin. They will be avle to swivel in the hole.

I like the idea. Is the bumper strong enough for those kind of loads at that point? I'd need to run out and look to be sure, but I don't think it's completely braced around that hi-lift hole is it?

I know the NAS bumper uses them, but it also mounts along the center and the far corners as well.

Also if you let them swivel, I think rusting on the cross member side will be an issue regardless of the material you use for the pin.

The holes are right next to the frame. Plenty strong. Coat the swivel in grease before inserting to prevent rust.

Yeah I agree, it looks as strong as any other part short of a big backing plate. I vote for a quick release then because it will require re-greasing to prevent rust.

Sorry I meant to type that clevis shackles are not included. They seem to run about $13 from McMaster-Carr.
