Traction Bars

I would really like to see pics of witch ones your running and see them on the truck. Also what your thoughts are on them. Truth is I really do not like the looks of them but have to run them so was just wanting to see what you guys had.

Thanks

I run the Farmboy Stage 1's, it is a single bar, big difference in shifting, most noticable when launching off the line, I have a 08-4X4-CC/LB, you really do not notice that much under the truck, sorry no pictures with me today, and if interested mine are for sale.

I've seen more than one guy say he wants to sell his lately. Does this mean that they aren't all they're cracked up to be?

No.... I mainly got them for towing my 5th wheel, but I get a vibration after I hook it up and what I would need to do is adjust my carrier bearing with an ajustable and just figured it was not worth the hassle doing that so being I do not run the total crap out of my truck figured I did not need them, but I will tell you that if you do run your truck it makes a night and day difference how the truck shifts, you will not have the slamming part of the shift, lots smoother. anyone interested PM me

I have the OUO traction blocks and bars. They are probably the nicest around and they really dont draw much attention, they also compliment my Icon 4 link nicely.

Yeah, I like the look of them actually, but im sure bars like the rize ones are nice just so bulky.

Traction bars are well worth the money, On my old dodge I wish I had bought them sooner.
