    Just got in the newest version of the Gator Jaw soft shackle. 7/16" with a claimed 32K lb breaking strength.
    I've used their smaller versions a bit and have been happy with them. Lighter than steel shackles, they float and if a tow point or strap breaks they are much safer than a flying shackle.

    I handled this one and immediately ordered a couple more.

    Been wanting one of those since we bought ours last year. Did you get the Ranger, or the Stealth?

    They sent the ladder and hatch back struts free when I ordered mine. I like the ladder as much as I do the rack. I use the ladder a lot.

    Plenty of room for what we haul, but we don't have kids. Well, Patrick does ride with us sometimes.
