A shackle will not clear the way it is now.
Matt, I need to look at that again. The plate above the hook can be altered, but the bumper mounting bracket to the side of the hook may still not allow enough clearance to put a strap over it. We'll see.
I think I have a hook from a Land Cruiser that I will try.
I did get an email response from ARB and this is what is reads:
I believe (though it's been a while since I last installed a Taco bar) that the hook can be moved to the other side clearing space to access it. Please let me know if that's not the case and well look for a different solution to the problem.
Hopefully I'll have this figured out by the weekend.
