    600lbs but the continuous vibration of shutting the door is not the same as supporting a shelf etc

    You'll probably be fine, but more details on the anchors (picture) would be good. You could have totally the wrong thing and we wouldn't know.

    I decided I don't want to deal with any problems down the road so im ripping out the wall next to the shoer and will slide a couple 2x4's for support

    Probably the safest bet to do it that way, write it up as an answer and accept it to close out the question.+
