Hey all, I would like to mount a shackle anchor around the same place the stock tow hooks are mounted. Anyone done this? Will it even work?

Thanks for any help.

Steve Schaffer from Yota Tech used to sell hand made pieces in small qty's to do exaclty that, they bolted to the factory tow-hook holes and had a Warn D-shackle fit to it. I don't think he still makes them but check http://www.sonoransteel.com/ just to be sure.

EDIT* He does still offer them but they do not come with the warn shackle and they are $150 a pair! Kinda pricey but that's becasue everything he makes is limited production and hand made FWIW. Here's the direct link http://fastq.com/~sschaefer/#Shackle

I had a set of those I just sold on here for $50.00. I won them EC4RJ'04 with the warn shackles in the raffle. They worked out well and looked alright, but I kept getting them hung up on rocks and they don't fit with the TJM bumper. I did get pulled out of a hole on them once and had no issues.

Yeah, I got 'em now! lol

They do turn down, but it's alot better than the factory tow hooks. Guess I gotta crank my SAWs up another 1/2" (got manual hubs). It says they don't fit 95.5-97s, but they fit on mine, albeit I had to cut a notch out of the front valance. It would be great if I could face them backward, so they get out of the way, but the skid (& prob the radiator, too) gets in the way.

I think a better design would be to attach the actual shackle bracket "in-line" with the frame mount, instead of an L-shaped design.

$150 a pair is a little more than I had in mind. I guess I'll probably just have to go buy a pair of Pro Comp hooks for $20 instead. Thanks for the info though.

hey have you seen Dick Foster's write up on the chevy tow hook swap? You might look into that as well. I believe that would be stronger than the pro comp hooks.
