    Now I’m not sure if I want to go with just black isolators for my silver D-rings for $16 or just get the black D-Rings with black isolators for $20!

    What do you guys think would look better on the black bumper? Black(Isolators) on silver(D-rings). Or black(Isolators) on black(D-rings).

    Red D rings... or orange D rings would be cool too.

    D-rings mounted not on active duty need to be seen (red) and secured (tightened) so they don't wander off

    Um, orange I think would look good on a black jeep.

    My main issue with not liking the red is because my D-ring is silver and I just don't think it will look good with red on silver. What do you guys think if I spray paint the whole d-ring red with a rattle can? Then I think it would look better.

    So, looking at Krylon SuperMaxx All in One spray paint, Gloss Cherry Red.

    Think that will work?

    Or Gloss be too much on a Matte Black bumper?

    Really depends on the look you're going for. Red with black isolators could work.

    Was thinking red with red isolators. So all red on the black bumper.

    Just not sure if it's too much?

    Then just go black and don't go back as silver and black mesh well.

    Silver and red are a cool combo. So is black and silver.

    So, my isolators came in and they look great in black. They came with 2 spacers for each d-ring but they are still loose. Tried 3 on one side and it was good. Anyone know if autozone or Lowe's would have this type of spacer or something I can use?
