the ones I remember from EE are only 3 tons, no way that would be enough for a real truck..... something like one with 17 jerry cans on the roof and steel dripping everywhere.... :) not that mine is that bad yet.... :D

I think they are pretty stout. Between the mounting bracket, back plate, and ARB shackle, I think that my ARB bumper would fail before these would. I don't see either happening before my grade 8 hardware failed.

Still way better than the factory tow points or ARB hi lift points often used with shackles.

LOL

What are the ARB ones rated for?

For proper use of the 3 ton units, you use 2. One on left and one on right of bumper face with a strap connected to both in a v-pattern. Then a d-shackle and off to either a strap or a winch line.

How can the ARB unit be any stronger? The ARB d-shackle is only rated for 4.75 tons itself.

Shoot my truck is too heavy for any of this stuff, i just cross my fingers lol

that is one pimp lookin' rig :rolleyes: . These are all working load numbers anyways, breaking point is much higher so in theory they can take alot before they break. Even the yank that the Alaska Trek guys use that can get upwarks of 20,000 - 25,000 lbs of force don't seem to have any issues with these 4.75 ton shackles.

the stamped tonnage is normall WLL, not failure load.

about this 2 strap thing you have to be careful. It's true it helps in lower load per side, but then you are pulling the 2 frame ends together and that ain't great if it's a big load.

ARB has made tents for a while, just haven't brought them here... until now.

Hmm checking out the awning. Maybe it will be cheaper than a Hannibal. Funny, i was looking at awnings today! Anyone see pricing on this unit yet? Im going to call ARB in the morning.
