Thanks guys!

My brother came up with this idea after seeing some full tube shackles and we've both made a few sets over the last few years. They have held up great except the first pair I did I used thin wall tubing for the bungs and one dented while rock crawling. That's why I am using 1/4" wall DOM tubing for the lower bungs on these.

My brother recently made a pair of 12" shackles using this design and he added a piece of rectangular tubing between them for a gusset. They look wicked at that length, especially with the gusset between them.
