Yes, we do make JL Red D-Ring Loops. - a great recovery point that mounts to our JL Winch Mount Plate (required for install) Check out our Red JL D-Ring Loops here >>> https://maximus-3.com/jl-bumper-accessories-/jl-d-ring-loops#/

We also make JL Red Tow Loops. They are great for both Flat Towing & Recovery Operations. Our Tow loops are independent & do not require any other parts for installation. Check out our JL Tow Loops here >>> https://maximus-3.com/jl-bumper-accessories-/jl-tow-loops#/

Hope this helps. Send any further questions our way.
Cheers, Maximus-3
Cool! Do you know if the the tow loops are compatible with the Warn winch plate?

All signs point to yes, I don't see any compatibility issues. Our tow loops mount to the outside of the chassis frame, and I believe that winch plate mounts to the inside of the chassis frame.

@Maximus-3, would you mind providing a picture of how the hoop connects into the top of the bumper and frame? I'm trying to determine if there would be any interference with my winch or winch plate. Thanks!

A PDF of the installation institutions would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hi @GhostDivers,
Here is the install guide, should clear some things up.
Of course Maximus-3 Hoops are compatible with other Maximus-3 parts (winch plates, accessories, etc.)

You guys are awesome! Yes, this helps. I actually went with the Rusty's plate...I ordered before I realized you had one out...though I do have your Hook Anchor and once the non-Zeon Trim Plates are available...I'll be getting those as well. The classic hoop is clearly on that list as is your Dually Aux. Light Bracket.

Actually on that...what size are the lights you have in your pics - are those 6"?

Good stuff @GhostDivers, glad to hear you like our products. CORRECTION: I took a look at your winch plate and I see a compatibility issue. The back bolt on the Rusty's plate shares the same location as our Hoop Reinforcement bracket. You could try to stack the two parts but that would push our reinforcement bracket inward the thickness of the winch plate, and you would have to bend our bracket back to desired location. Otherwise the Maximus-3 SLP hoop withour reinforcement bracket would be perfectly compatible.
* The lights pictured with the "white X" claimed to be 7" lights.

But, we have recently upgraded to TYRI Lights, and the difference is "Night and Day" TYRI makes the brightest lights we have ever seen. Maximus-3 is proud to endorse this company and their products. We will soon be selling TYRI's Intelligent Lighting Solutions on our website.

That is really kind of you to take the extra step to confirm the winch plate!

I didn't really care for the X lights...I was asking more for scale. The TYRI Lights look much better - do you know what size those are?

Please see my correction to the above post. Our Classic Hoop's reinforcement bracket would need to be modded to work with the Rusty's plate.
The TYRI Lights are called 7" but I believe they include the housing and brackets in their measurements.

Hi Max,

I looked through the instructions and saw that bolt was used in the winch plate I have and was going to reach out to you...but you had already caught it above.

The factory bracket that bolt is used to connect looks like it's an 1/8 of an inch thick and my winch plate is 1/4 inch. That bracket was removed for the plate to be installed, so if I'm looking at this correctly, the hoop reinforcement bracket would be pushed out an 1/8 of an inch too far to the middle of the bumper.

I'm guessing there would not be an 1/8" play in your reinforcement bracket where it is bolted to the top of the bumper? And if there is, would that put too much stress on the bolt connecting the hoop and the reinforcement bracket?

I'd like to get your hoop, but I don't want to dump my current winch plate and have to buy another one.

Thank you for your time and help!

@GhostDivers
You are correct, if you stacked our hoop's reinforcement bracket on your non-Maximus-3 winch plate, our bracket would be approximately 1/4" off from it's necessary location. The only solution would be to bend our reinforcement bracket back into proper placement.

This sort of thing happens all the time, where two aftermarket parts compete for the same real-estate. Not much you can do other than modifying one of the parts, if possible. Hind-site 20/20 it would have been better to get our Maximus-3 JL Winch Plate which does not interfere with our Hoops & Stingers.
You still have the option for Maximus-3 SLP hoop without reinforcement brackets, or bending the bracket (mentioned above)

Thanks for inquiring about our high quality Maximus-3 parts.
