well, the jeep i purchased has a place on the front bumper where you could hook up a tow bar. i like having that option, so i'm keeping them there. but i also wanted to have d-ring shackles up front (just in case). but what i've found is that d-ring shackles will not fit into the brackets for the tow bar. i did see some sort of military shackle on ebay, but i wasn't sure if that was my only option.
i've included a picture of my jeep & you can see the hook up for the tow bar.
does anyone know of a shackle that i could use that would fit either in between the tabs for the tow bar or around it? i have to get exact measurements, but i think it would have to be at least a 2.5-3 inch opening to fit around them.
