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

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.
