D Ring Shackle Mount

#1
Would it be a good idea to weld a D Ring shackle mount like the one below to the bottom of the hitch receiver for a recovery point? I would keep a heavy duty shackle along with a recovery strap in the trunk that I could easily attach/detach.

If not please explain why.

Better off just getting one of these....why is because the welding of that mount is one more potential failure. It would be some thick shit to burn in properly and most dont have a welder setup for something like that. One of these is easy to leave with the strap.

Alright, thanks. I'll probably find one like that.
Do you have any suggestions on brands to look into or avoid?
