Introducing Jeep Wrangler JL/JT factory hook replacement Shackle Tab Kit, designed and manufactured by HK Offroad. Replaces or adds to the factory open ended hook and the plastic bumper cover with a solid 3/4" thick Shackle tab with 3/4" steel surrounding the shackle pin. The shackle tab is welded to 3/8" base plate mounted to factory frame mounting location using 1/2" grade-8 hardware. The shackle tab also has 1/4" gussets on its sides for side pull load support.

Cutting of the 16 gauge steel tube (crush can) located on the fog-light housing is required as the shackle tab kit replaces the crush can. Installation instructions available.

- Build: The shackle tabs measure 3/4" thick constructed from A572 Grade-50 Steel welded to 3/8" thick steel base plate with two 1/4" gussets on each side of the shackle tab. Indestructible is an understatement.
- ASTM A572 Grade 50 is considered a "workhorse" grade and is widely used in many applications. Steel mills produce channel and heavy beams with Grade 50. It is commonly used in structural applications, heavy construction equipment, building structures, heavy duty anchoring systems, truck frames, poles, liners, conveyors, boom sections, structural steel shapes, and applications that require high strength per weight ratio.
