Kind of stupid/pointless but still makes me kind of mad. A couple of weeks ago I noticed on my front bumper that one of my d-rings was gone and the other was really loose. I hadn't gone wheeling within a week or two before it so it was mostly just street driving. I'm curious to see if this has happened to anyone else and if I just need to get different shackles. For now I just keep tightening the one I have left
The voices in my head told me to...
I've got an old screwdriver in my Jeep tool kit that I used to torque em down after finding one of mine loose a couple months ago. Haven't had em come loose since, though I check em when I fill up w/gas now.

I have the type that go on with a bolt & nut and secured with a cotter pin. never had a problem. never seem to have a reason to take them off so it works quite well for me. I keep a couple of the threaded pin type in my recovery bag as well just in case there is ever a need.
