Receiver Shackle Bracket - HELP

Hi, i want to buy a Receiver Shackle Bracket for my Overland.
I see that most of them include a D ring which i also want, they are 3/4 inch (is this enough?), is this size appropriate for this jeep and pulling jeeps stuck in mud or sand, more or less like this (FJ, prado, Land Cruisers, Patrol, etc).
And about the Receiver i see they are Class III and the one i have from mopar says it is class IV. What is the difference...or any 2 inch receiver will do the job?
please help me out.
finally i want to buy a recovery strap, how many pounds capable do you recommend for the same job...10k or 20k or 30k more?

Thanks,
felipe

My opinion is something else will fail on your Jeep LONG before either the Factor55 hitchlink or the BTF receiver shackle mount fail. The BTF one is rated at 60k and the F55 is only 51k.

It comes down to which one fits your budget better and which one looks better to you? Personally, I'd still go with the Factor55, its a much more aesthetically pleasing, and its anodized so it wont oxidize.


BTW video is cool

the factor 55 is a better design, but for your uses it won't matter. you won't be able to pull on anything hard enough to make it matter.

fyi, you could lift your whole jeep with a single 3/8" d-ring shackle and it would be within it's safety margins. 3/4" shackles are for picking up tanks. lol.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
