which traction bars to get

Looking for advice on which traction bars to get. I am trying to smooth out my shifts as much as possible. My truck has a 4" lift, with 37" tires and a spartan 250 tune. I hope the traction bars will solve the rough shifts, it feels like the rearend is falling out from under it.

Didn't you just take a lift off a few months ago?

I saw a set of OUO bars in person today... The welding is... kinda disappointing.

If you've got some fabrication skills and access to a welder, Wide Open Performance sells a DIY traction bar kit. Has the brackets and heims needed. You supply the tubing, cut it to the length you need, and weld everything up.

For the money that ouo costs you would think they would look top notch guess your paying for the name!
