Tow shackles?

Hi there!

I'm planning on flat towing my YJ to my first 4x4 outing and am a bit lost with the tow bar (haven't got it yet). I have an aftermarket dual tube type bumper that has no spots to bolt anything on. I've seen tow shackles <a href="http://www.quadratec.com/cgi-bin/sgin0101.exe?T1=16045+50&UREQA=1&UREQB=2&UREQC=3&U REQD=4&FNM=00&UID=2002051515164720" target="_blank">http://www.quadratec.com/cgi-bin/sgin0101.exe?T1=16045+50&UREQA=1&UREQB=2&UREQC=3&U REQD=4&FNM=00&UID=2002051515164720</a> in Quadratec that bolt onto the leaf spring (I'm REALLY not sure how these work...where do all those bolts go?!?!) and would like some advice on what to do.

Is my best option to unbolt my bumper, toss it in the back, bolt on the tow bar and go (will a tow bar bolt to the frame?), or are the leaf spring shackles a better option? I've heard nightmares about trying to get the leaf spring bolt out (I've never done it) and don't want to get stuck with half a tow bar hook up because I can't get the other shackle on. Also, if I do go with the leaf spring shackles, do I remove them to go wheeling and then put them back on for the ride home or leave them on?

Thanks much
