Shackles

I recently bought Saguaro 4x Shackle Mounts because my truck didn't come with tow hooks, instead of buying tow hooks I think the shackles look better and are more versatile.

I need to buy shackles though for the mounts, where is the best place to buy them from?

Re: Shackles

don't the shackle mounts come with 5/8" shackles? I thought I read that on their site, I'm going to get a set too.

Re: Shackles

If you have not already purchased some shackles you can get nice ones from 4 wheel parts.com I bought some from them and they are nice. I went with 3/4" made by smittybilt they ran like $10 each with free shipping.

Re: Shackles

Tractor Supply company. Just make sure that the screw/shank of the shackle fits sung in the hole of the mount.

Re: Shackles

I had saguaro build me a set of custom shackle mounts for the front. It is the same overall design as the ones they currently offer but I had them build them so I could use my 3/4" shackles, the ones he currently has use 5/8" shackles and while these are plenty strong enough I already had the shackles and wanted to have an even stronger option. Saguaro has since taken the idea of the 3/4" shackle mounts and added them to the voting list to make them an item they will offer to the general public and not something that has to be cutom built like mine were.
