Help me find Front D-Shackle Mounts

So I need to get some recovery points on the 08 5.7 right away. I don't want to waste $$ on the factory tow hooks. I have been looking for D-Shackle Mounting Brackets.

Saguaro 4x closed down and the only other option I see is this Made To Order seller on Ebay that I don't know if I trust. It seems like its taking a while to ship and I just don't know if I trust some guy making them. I couldn't figure out if he was associated with a company or not.

Are there other places to get the mounts? Please let me know. This is all I have found so far.

Re: Help me find Front D-Shackle Mounts

I had the first ones that were made by a FB member: they were thicker than normal. I paid $120. SA does make good products too. For me, it would be the type of finish they come in and what size diameter ring they accept. Good luck!

Re: Help me find Front D-Shackle Mounts

If you read in the description it says they are made to order so it took mine about 10 days but well worth it they fit 5/8" d-ring 3/4" pin which are smaller but theres no need for huge d-rings based on the wk vehicle weight hope this helps

Yeah that's the ebay item I was looking at. I was just a little weary since he isn't from one of the big companies. I'm gonna pull the trigger this week. Thank you for your help.
