2008 f250 traction bars

Looking for suggestions on traction bars for 08 f250 6.4 ext. cab short bed. Spartaned tuned 4" superlift. I was looking at superlift but come to find out the part number they have listed is just that, a part number they have listed. Not even in production yet, backordered and dont know how long. My other choice I was looking at were the pro comps but not sure if they are any good? I dont want to spend a 1000 bucks on bars either. I need to get rid of my axle wrap, I wont even horse on the truck of do sled pulls until I get a set in there. It wraps pretty bad without them. Just seems it is hard to find them for these trucks yet?

Spatel23 is very happy with his Farmboy Fab bars and I don't believe they high in price like the OUO bars. Maybe he will chime in. I had Pro Comp bars on my truck at stock height and wasn't happy with them at all (came off yesterday actually because I sold them). I still had a lot of axle wrap.....but they will work better on a truck with a 4-6" lift because that is what they are designed for.

Is the rear changed at all, or does the rear still have the stock block?

So your truck has a block on top of another block? I would avoid that and get a single 3.5" or 4" rear block that can be drilled for the traction bars to work. I don't think doing a set of traction bars would be smart with 2 blocks on top of each other. I don't think that is smart period.....but I don't know enough about lift and what not to say for sure.

We have a pretty solid setup. There are a few members on here that can chime in as far as real world feedback. My opinion might be a little biased, lol.
