I just came across these...looks like it may be a viable option with a factory bumper. Thoughts/input?

Those look very cool. Put sleeve around the bolts and I think you'd have a strong recovery point. Your not going to sheer through 2-3" of metal, even if its just the thinner steel of the bumper, and the sleeves would keep it from deforming.

wonder what the rating on the swivel component is

It's made by David Corsetti / Corsetti Engineering, the same guy that founded Equipe....so I'm sure they're well-designed.

I think I'm going to order up a couple sets.

Those swivels are nice, but these were my favorite.

I love the Viking stuff, I have a few of their pieces. Their swivels are awesome but it doesn't address those of us still (inexplicably) running factory bumpers since they need a heavy-duty backer, which the bumper does not provide.

Nope, from what I remember you drill the hole to size and insert it from the back, and the snap ring will keep it from sliding backwards
