My question is do I attach the D ring in the position shown in the picture or rotate it 90 degrees. Im no engineer and not sure which is the proper method.
Yes, hang as shown. Question; to what are the studs attached? If they are just nailed to a 2x4 base plate on the bottom and a rim joist or similar at the top they probably won't support you for long. You will pull them right out of the wall.
If the basement wall is poured concrete, attach the D ring to the 2x5 then attach the 2x5 to the foundation wall with 3" nails fired from a .22 caliber nailer. If they are block walls, try hollow wall masonry screw like Tapcons.
