Hey everyone, I want to install shackles in place of the front tow hooks. My XK did not come with tow hooks at all. I have read the threads that give great instructions and photos of how to do the install, but I have searched everywhere and can't find the brackets that mount to the frame first. I have located and ordered the shackle kit suggested by another helpful member, AcidCold, but it won't do me any good by itself. Does anyone have a part number for those brackets or know where besides a stealer, I mean dealer I could find them? This is a picture of AcidCold's GC with the shackles - looks great and I think the mounting setup is the same on the XK:

OEM hooks come with brackets. I didn't use them. I drilled into frame and bolted on. I like this idea but couldn't find shackles. Where did you find them ad what do they look like?

The shackles can be purchased form http://www.knowwhere2jeep.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_215&products_id=8219

They look like this:


The other member, AcidCold says that the 05 - 06 Rubicon shackles mount up to the XK mounting brackets.
Here is a cheaper price if anyone is interested $35 each and cheap shipping: http://www.gotojeepaccessories.com/detail.asp?product_id=4185&GID=

Also, it doesn't matter if they are 05-06 Rubicon shackles. Rampage only makes one bolt pattern, it just happens to fit the Rubicon which may be similar to ours.
