Smittybilts D-Ring Shackles are the perfect vehicle recovery rigging point. These universal fit shackles will work perfectly with Smittybilts XRC & SRC Series Bumpers as well as any other brand of off-road bumper. Finished in black or zinc, Smittybilts D-Rings will provide you with years of reliable service out on the trail.
While designed for towing, I have used these in several applications. I have a heavy e-bike and the bike rack sometimes is on the back of a camping trailer. The rack itself has to be ratcheted up to take weight off the flimsy trailer hitch, especially on rough roads. Using these D-rings allows me to use the ratcheting straps by running them through the D-ring. The D-rings are then held onto the top of the trailer using wire cables. Previously the straps were in contact in with the edge of the trailer and breaking. There are many uses for these beyond towing.

I do like the D Ring. Had no problems.
Used on Lucrum Mount on a FJ Cruiser.
Would be nice to have a Black option.

Great for Superduty owners
I bought this so I can better use the factory closed tow points on the Ford Superduty / Excursion platform. Because the factory tow points are closed they make you loop back through the tow strap which is less than ideal. With the shackle you clamp the end of the tow strap to the tow point which is quicker and probably safer as well.

very resistant and reliable
Very resistant, already had to pull a truck and not even a scratch on the metal.
