Introducing the 7/8 Jowl Recovery Shackle, a larger version of our original split shackle that's transforming the recovery scene. Designed for large trucks and utility vehicles this innovative split "J" design eliminates the need for tools or soft shackles, streamlining rope and strap connections for faster setups. Say goodbye to the hassle of removing shackles from your bumper or hitch receiver – with our shackle, you can make connections and hook up ropes or straps on the fly, making tool-less closed recoveries a breeze on the trail or in challenging environments.


Just open up the Jowl shackle hooked sides, insert your recovery rope or tow strap looped end, rotate the end of the tow rope or strap to engage both sides of the shackle, pull tight and you are ready to recover your stuck vehicle.

We designed the Jowl with a D-Ring shackle shape for those off-roaders who prefer a more traditional shackle look on their rigs. Built-in pull angle stops are visual reminders that give you feedback to help you keep your pull angles low keeping your recovery safe and as efficient as possible.

The Jowl 7/8 Recovery Shackle fits any 2.5 inch Class V shackle receiver hitch bracket mount with a 1 inch (1.0") pin hole and a mount width of 1.49 inches or less.

All color options are fully interchangeable. Buy two different color shackles and combine the two symmetrical hook halves to match the color scheme of your rig and give your build a more custom accented look. The hooked sides are fully covered with a durable powder coating pantone color matched to popular truck and Jeep colors. The shackle pin is Black Nickel plated and machined from High Strength Grade 8 Carbon Steel.

This 6.5T (13,000 LB WLL) forged chromoly steel shackle is guaranteed to speed up vehicle recovery so you can spend more time enjoying the trail instead of being stuck in it.

Built-in rubber anti-chatter pads stop the hooked sides from rattling against each other as you navigate the roughest trails.

Each shackle includes six durable nylon shackle isolators. Two 3.0mm thick washers, two 2.0mm thick washers and two 1.0mm thick washers help you center your Jowl shackle on any width bumper shackle mount, gusset, wench rope, or shackle receiver.

We made mounting the Jowl easy. The shackle pin is secured by two Metric M22 cap screws that accept any 3/8" socket wrench. Just grab two 3/8 inch ratchets and easily remove or attach the shackle to your vehicle without the need to find the correct allen keys or hex wrenches out on the trail. (Bonus: only one screw needs to be removed to attach or remove the shackle from your vehicle adding to the speed and functionality of this design.) Two 6mm Hex to 3/8" square drive adapters are also included with each Jowl split shackle for easy installation.

Mohawk Receiver 2.5 - Black Lung

Big Truck owners can now hang their 7/8 tow shackle from our new versatile Large Truck Mohawk 2.5 shackle hitch mount.

The Mohawk 2.5 is warm forged using 6082 aluminum with the grain flow orientated to maximize the strength of your connection point providing a work load limit of 18,000 pounds. This higher quality and higher cost 6082 aluminum also has better mechanical properties and better corrosion resistance compared to 6061.

Two 5/8 inch hitch pin holes allow for two receiver mounting positions increasing compatibility with any 2.5 inch hitch package. The third 5/8 inch hitch pin hole allows you to rotate the receiver 90 degrees for recovery and towing versatility.

Most shackle receivers have sharp edges at the connection point which often tear soft shackles, synthetic ropes, tree savers and strap looped ends. The Mohawk 2.5 main mounting hole has a very large radius on the outer edges to reduce abrasion and increase the life of your recovery gear making this ideal for use with any closed loop recovery set up. The spined outer perimeter adds more material where you need it most and gives the Mohawk its aggressive and unique identity.
