Hot off the press!
I had these shackle mounts made so they would maximize the usable space on my ARB bumper. In addition to the front mounts, I had them make a set of backing plates to increase the overall strength of the mount. The ARB is a great bumper, but it's a little thin in certain areas and I really don't want to damage it. They surprised me by coating them with this black paint and the overall finish looks great.
Backing Plates = 1/4"
Shackling Mounting Plate = 1/2"
Shackle Mount = 1"
Holes are 1/2" and I'll be putting Grade 8 cadmium plated hardware in it - bolt, washers, lock washers + nylon threaded nut. Because the mounts themselves are not direct to the frame, I think this will make an excellent setup for static pulls, but I'll shy away from the dynamic b/c it would destroy the bumper...but I'm sure these mounts would be fine!!
Here's a pic for you guys!!
