    I just purchased a WARN Shackle Bracket and realized after fitting it in my receiver that it is a little loose. This is likely due to the WARN Shackle Bracket being for a class III hitch and my 2011 Tacoma being a class IV. Even though the WARN is a little loose in the receiver, would it still be ok to use for recovery or should I purchase a device specifically for a class IV? If so, any suggestions on which brand? I really liked the WARN.

    I have the Warn shackle and don't have any problems with it. It does rattle around alot going over bumps ut it doesn't hurt it's functionality. I've thought of trying to put some rubber in the gaps to quiet it down, but I can live with it.
