Front tow points to replace crush cans

Who makes a front tow point that replaces the factory crush can?

I'm running the AEV front bumper which re-uses the factory crush cans. I had to remove the AEV tow point brackets to fit the plow mounts. I'm looking to replace the crush cans with a sturdy shackle mount or something. I recall seeing something like this but have no idea who made it.

Searching for tow points returned a million useless items.

Anybody?

I've been looking for something myself, since I want to move the shackles up higher, but have not found anything as a bolt-on to fit the pattern of the bolts. It looks like I'll have to have some made shackle mounts/plate made and replace the bumper mounting bolts with longer grade 8 bolts.

I *know* that I've seen them. I just didn't think I needed them at the time. Hopefully someone will chime in. Somebody makes these for sure.

OK, the trick was to search for "d-ring mount"

Found these:
