Viking Offroad carries its own shackles that go through a rigorous three-part plating process consisting of a thorough cleaning, a zinc bath leading to a clear chromate conversion coating. This binds the the zinc plating and gives you the BEST protection against corrosion. Our shackles are then cleaned and powder coated with the best quality powder coating available here in the US. The finish is a high gloss coating that looks great and provides even more protection against corrosion.

Haven't had any problem with the finish on these, I own four in total now. They look great in the recovery bag and perform great in the field.

I just got them today. Can't wait to test them out. Just by the look and feel I can tell they will perform!
