My Pro Comp's are bolt on, but require drilling in the frame. OUO has a bolt on kit that will also require drilling.

Are you looking to lift your truck at all? Or just add traction bars? We have a bolt on kit that incorporates the block with the traction bar mount. At the front of the bar, there is a floating shackle that allows your suspension to fully cycle without any binding what so ever. With as nice as the newer trucks ride, you dont wanna mess that up! We just came out with a different style of bar (second pic) this is standard on all kits now.
Full kits start at $725

i couldnt find brackets for the procomp bars,got any links?ill search for ouo myself.thanx for the help.i dont mind drilling the frame i just dont care for welding,i know i know seems weird considering welds are stronger but at the same time they are also permanent.
