I sold my stock tow hooks and bought Fawkes recovery shackle tabs and black 3/4" shackles. Looking forward to installing and testing.

I recently sold my stock tow hooks to to upgrade to the new Fawkes stand alone shackle tabs. The stock tow hooks did just fine for the most part but they were hard to keep a strap on due to them turning down and some times question the strength when winching on them. I'd say they were a great light duty recovery solution. I have continued to push my Jeep to new limits and decided it was time for an upgrade. I have read nothing but good reviews and feedback on the Fawkes setup and look really beefy. I took the money from the sale of a stock hooks and took the chance on the new setup. I ordered them late Thursday evening and had a confirmation email Friday morning that said they had shipped. I got a reply in my build thread from Kris saying that my order was due to me today Tuesday. It arrived early today and I opened them as soon as I could. All I can say is that these things are made really well and are pure beef. They have a unlimited life time warranty "you break it they replace it for free no questions asked" I will post back long term feedback after putting these to the test. I am still waiting on my 3/4" smittybilt black shackles. I am very impressed with the customer service, shipping, product and ease of install. Ihighly recommend these to anyone looking for a quality product and a great price. Thanks for everything Kris

What type of drill / adapter

I just recieved my Fawkes and my right angle drill adapter doesn't have enough clearance. What type of drill / adapter did you use to open the holes up with?

Thanks for the reply. Might be a dumb question but how did you reach the hole that is furthest back? Did you just drill it out at a slight angle?
