So I was at the Flea market... no, not eBay, the Palo Alto flea market with Coco... and amidst the heat and trash... I came across these:




the 3/4" shackle was an obvious choice, but the ring is not something I have experience with.. I've seen them on Brenton's truck as well as Chris' Camel Trophy truck... but not sure, other than a pintle hitch, how one would use it.  for $4, it was worth finding out... :-)


Thoughts or experience with these?

They are actually meant for hoisting over head loads. They were used on the CT trucks because there isn't enough clearance to get a typical D-shackle through the Dixon-Bate tow jaws. The red and yellow colors designate the rated load, but I am unaware of them off hand. I've seen both red and yellow used on the CT. I have mine on the rear hitch as an extension so you don't have to get as far under the spare tire for rigging.

Yeah I use mine up front as you can't put a D shackle on
my DB tow point. $4 is def worth it.
