Ant-seize or threadlock?

what do you guys recommend for the ubolt bolt's and shackle hanger bolts? can't find any good reference to recommend either or. here's a few pics of the project.
some stats:

Currie 9 inch wide track
4.11 gears
ARB locker
3.5 inch OME lift
cj to yj spring conversion
BFG mud terrain KM2's
Spyderlock beadlocks

Thanks for your help guys!

Also, would you guys cut the excess ubolt threads that extend down beyond the skid plate? those are direct from Currie. i'm assuming there made to fit a wide range of lifts and then be cut to keep the under surface smooth and remove the likleyhood of an obstacle hang up.

Yes those bolts need trimmed. I've never used anti seize or lock tight just re torque after 500 miles or so. Shackle bolts I use a nyloc style nut. Don't forget shackles are part of the suspension and must "move freely". I've seen so many shackles over tightened and then drivers complain about the ride. Jeep looks good
