Shackle Chain

We didn't think to add anti-kickback shackles before hitting the trail, and as a result, our spring shackles kept inverting when the suspension fully dropped out. As a trail fix, we bolted a length of chain from the bumper to the spring eye to keep it from fully dropping out. We figured we'd fix it when we got home, but now we're convinced the chain will remain on the Jeep forever.
