Anyone have revolver shackles?

I have a 94 YJ with a 6" skyjacker monolinear rock ready and a 3" body lift on 35" boggers. It has pretty good flex now, but I have been considering revolver shackles to help fully flex the 35's. I was just curious if anyone out there is currently running them, if they like them, and if they feel that they are worth the price. I'd appreciate any insight. Thanks.

They work well on most YJs, but there is a real vulnerability. When backing up the shackle can get hung up on stuff. This caused the main leaf to break on the Jeep I'm thinking of. And in your case, with a monoleaf, I wouldn't even consider it.

They are overpriced. They will allow some more flex, by I am probably going to sell mine soon. They are CJ5 ones though.

Don't even think about using them without some sort of ladder bars.
