Shackles on 95 YJ Rio Grande

I want to start with something so after I got a set of 31s I figured I might switch shackles to clear them a bit better. In any case, here I was browsing eBay and found this puppy - http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=190469656919
I started wondering if this is something legitimate or full of crap. Any thoughts?

the seller has 100% positive. It doesn't list a thickness, but if you take the landscape rock/ gravel for scale, i'd say they're 3/16 maybe? It says they're bulletproof. That's cool-in case you get shot at. Are they jeep proof? that's what really matters...

I've seen them with and without the center brace. If flexibility is a concern you don't want the brace. If mostly street driven you will appreciate the stiffer mount. Just depends how you use your jeep. I'm not a big fan of shackle lifts. They load the springs. I'd add a leaf or change springs. But that's just me. I run 33's with a leaf and stock shackled with no issues on mine.

80% of the time driven is a street/highway. I'm planning to go off-road but nothing extreme (maybe much later with some proper changes/mods done). Otherwise my off-road is between medium snow and mild trails. And yeah, did I mention that I'm new to this ?

I have this shackles on my 92 yj islander. I love them! I run them at 2 inch height with 31s. They really helped my offroad ability. Best of all they were a cheap lift.
