Traction Bars.....

I am wondering if anyone is running traction bars, and do they really work?

I will probably pick up a set very soon. They limit wheel hop that occurs when your truck is putting out enough torque to twist your rear suspension.

Good if you are modded, useless for a stock truck.

They help to prevent axle wrap, Thats not a good thing to have, not evey one is going to need them, but it's a great mod

Like Colin said great for a modded truck

I have the jdm 58 " long bars. They work well, The front frame mount is to low I need to refab a mounting bracket. They only have about 31/2 ". clearance as the truck has been lowered (slammed) by the 2nd owner, I am the 3rd. I have since raised the rear 1.5-2 inchs and put on the traction bars. The modded bracket will move the front bushing mount about 2.5 inchs to the outside and up almost 3 inchs.
