OUO Traction Blocks Going on Today!!!

I finally got my traction blocks yesterday and they are getting installed at my buddy's shop as I type. I got the all black 9" setup. I've been running the 275 tune the last few days and these are much needed with my lift. I will post some pics up tonight.

Pricing varies based on how you configure them. You can see all the options here:
One Up Offroad Traction Blocks - 1999-2008 F250/350 & Excursion - Truck Toyz Store

Short beds can use fixed or adjustable bars.
Long beds need the adjustable bars.
Benefit of the adjustable bars on a short bed is that you can easily move the mount on the frame rail some prior to drilling if something is in the way.

Well we jumped the gun on the install before we realized there was no u-bolts! They will be here tomorrow so pics will have to wait until then. Well on the bright side, at least I get to drive my sweet '99 Lumina commuter car for one more day.

Ok here they are. I think they look killer in satin black. I also installed the sway bar drop brackets which are trick. Sorry for the cell phone pics.

Those look great! I like them in the black, too! Did they ship that
way, or did you guys spray them on your end?

Edit: So the axle wrap is gone ... are you still working on the drive line
shutter?

I'm trying to decide if I'll go 6" or 8", based on your successes or
challenges

Thanks. Everything came black except the coupler for the adjustable bars...we just scuffed and sprayed it to match. There is definitely no axle wrap, these things are stout as hell. I was actually just in the garage taking shims out (was at 2"). My angles are all pretty much within spec now so I'm going to drive it tonight and see if the shudder is gone. I guess my old blocks weren't tapered and these are 5 degree tapered so I'm hoping this did the trick!!
