D link brackets?

Hey gang, my front mount hitch is currently en route to my house. The plan is to mount a winch in the front receiver, and d-rings on either side of it. I'd also like to have d-ring mounts on the rear. A lot of the purpose behind this is self recovery in the WI winter backwoods. That being said, I searched and read and searched and read, and really hope I'm not grave digging a topic here.

I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on these:
C3R - Class 3 Recovery
C3R - Class 3 Recovery Installation

They seem like they'd be a real simple bolt on point for d-rings, but that's also what concerns me about them. They'd also be real simple for me to fab up. Thoughts? Opinions? Flames? Thanks guys.

They look like a good idea. If you can do it cheaper, go for it. You could also just get a removable one for the receiver. I have one for mine when I wheel. I also have a front receiver that is hidden behind my plate.

I plan on getting one for the receiver as well. The idea with these is that I'll have the winch mounted in the receiver, run the winch cable out to a ****** block on a tree saver, and then back to one of the d rings if the angle isn't great for straight pulling out. Most of the time I'm my own rescuer if I get stuck.

The concern I had with the bracket mounts would be putting too much stress on the front hitch, and busting that off. That being said, just having the hitch should help stiffen the whole front end together. Hence me looking for more opinions before I try and do something stupid.
