Traction Bars

Just ordered the extreme race tune from Innovative as well as a DPF/CAT delete pipe and EGR block-off plates from Cobbs. I'm running a 6" Rize lift on my truck with 37" toyo MT's. I know the axle wrap is going to get bad and want to know if the OUO traction block setup is really necessary? I really like the look of the Rize bar's, but if the OUO block setup really can make a noticable in the seat difference than I'll have to go with them over the Rize bars. I'd also like to know if it's going to be dangerous running a 7" block with the Rize bars vs the 6" block I'm running now. Thanks for any input fellas!

I have the Rize bars...zero issues with nearly 600rwhp on tap. I know everyone here seems to be a fan of the OUO bars for whatever reason but I find the Rize design and function to be flawless and the looks are hands down better in every regard.

Jesse,

Will these work well on a non-lifted truck? I want to reduce the hard shifting aspects of my truck.

Thanks!

Mike

I personally dont like the look of the Rize Bars...I had a rize kit on my 06 and its just to bulky looking to me. I like my Icon/OUO setup better

Well looks can go either way...some people love the look of the Rize stuff while others do not. I'm sure the same goes for OUO. As far as performance, I'm sure both will hold down the rear very well.

The major difference is with the OUO traction blocks there is no way that block is coming out. This setup works great for those with bigger lifts and who haven't lifted yet so haven't spent the money on replacement springs as you would with a taller Rize setup. I have a 9" block in mine with the stock springs. You can't do that with Rize...you will have to replace the rear springs and run a small block to get the same height I have.

I'm sure both work well but I love my OUO setup because it allowed me to keep my stock spring pack and it keeps my block where it should be.
