Shackle mount

I have been searching the Internet for a set of shackle mounts for my WK. I have only found them on saguaro4x.. But they are out of stock and back ordered. Has any one purchased these recently and knows where they may be available to be purchased.

Re: Shackle mount

They are worth the wait. Order them and be patient. Hard I know but worth it.

If you can weld or know a good welder you could easily make a set. They are just a rectangular bar with a hole drilled through it welded to a 1/4" plate with mounting holes.

Make sure he is a VERY good welder. You wouldn't want one of those to break loose during a recovery. People have died from similar incidents.

You can even buy these:
http://www.atozfabrication.com/store...is-Mounts.html
Then you would just have to measure for the mounting plates and weld accordingly. Someone on jeepforum made there own. Use 1/4" plate.

Oh, make me a set too, would ya?
