Help? which Traction Bars

Which traction/ladder bars are you guys using?

I have seen the pro comp ones for around 450 bucks and then rize makes a slick set for 1000. Fab tech has a set but don't care for the look, they are also around 1000. why are pro comps so cheap?

I have a 6in fab tech and need a set to clean up the shifting for the back max.

They are not designed properly in my opinion. I can't see how the truck will ride good and the suspension will lose it's full range of travel. One Up Offroad look like the way to go.

I have the Fabtech 6" lift and went with OUO with 5" blocks. You get what you pay for!

OUO with blocks.

Are traction bars only for lifted trucks? Mines not but would this help with the hard Spartan shifts? And it's a reg. Cab an I've not found any yet for it.

Not the same company. One up Offroad is in Oregon. Truck Toyz is their main distributor.
