Bolt on Shackle mounts?

Anyone use these? I found a couple sets on ebay... some with backing plate, some w/o... are these worth it? I really don't want aftermarket bumpers right now but I need a place to hook the wench...

If you find one that bolts to the frame in place of the OE Hook it should be OK for the front.

Expedition exchange has them. I have em' on my stock bumper. They work great! I'll post pics... in the mean time here Expedition Exchange Incorporated :: Recovery Gear :: ARB 3/4" Bow Shackle (ARB207D)

Hope that's what you mean!

Hmmm.. the ARB are rated for 4.5tons. the regular SWB are rated for 3ton. Theres also a plate you can buy - that may change the weight recommendations???
