Traction Bars

Anyone used Pro Comp bars on their 350 SD 08 and newer. I think I need bars for sure with the Black Maxx to stop spring wrap up and improve driveline longevity. Cant afford OUO and would prefer bolt on no welding. How about Cal-tracs? Lookin for low price options . JIM

I have them on my 08 F250 with 8" lift. They do the job and I have had 0 problems with them, not too pricey either.

i have the farmboy bars and am very happy with them
I dont know what the pro comp bars run but the farmboy bars are offered at a great price......

nothing against pro comp bars but Id go with the farmboy bars.
even better traction bars are made by one up offroad but they are pricey

If the farm boys offered a bolt on kit instead of weld on then that's the route i would prolly go but it looks like I will be going with OUO.
