Traction Bars

I'm sure this has been discussed before but here goes...Whats the best traction bars out there for the money? I have the carrier bearing drop kit and my truck stills vibrates a little on a take off. I would like them for other obvious reasons also. I really like the OUO bars with the blocks but they aint cheap. Anybody else tried other brands? Good/Bad?

OUO does have plain traction bars as well....without the blocks.
Either with a bolt on or weld on mount for the axle. The frame mounts are all bolt on.

What are the specs on your truck? cab and bed config? lift?

traction bars alone may get rid of the vibration withough the carrier bearing drop.

It's a crew cab short bed, 4x4, 6" pro comp lift, 37" toyos, and I kinda want to get rid of the stacked blocks and add-a-leafs in the rear.

Ah...then yeah traction blocks are the way to go

We do have 90 days 0% on all purchases using the Truck Toyz/Car Car One card (or if you already have a Car Care One card).

That's all handled by GE Money Bank.....I've only ever used it over the years to take advantage of the 0%.
