Are these traction bars any good?

Or are they over priced? The only reason I looked at these cause these are made only for my truck spec.

I haven't heard anything bad about Rize. I would suggest researching a traction block setup in which the traction bars are connected to to thetraction blocks. Truck Toyz sells One Up Offroad (as may others vendors) and Trevor at Precision Metal Fab makes nice customs setups. The are numerous threads about how pleased people have been with OUO and PMF.

I would say the Rize ones are a little overly pricey for what you get. I've got the PMF traction blocks and I have no complaints, and they work great. I'd recommend those to anyone. There are also a lot of people that like the OUO traction blocks and swear they're a better design, but I don't really know.

I think Melissa is in the DFW area, if you're going to be in the Arlington to keller vicinity at any point PM me and I can meet up with you if you wanna see mine in person. Otherwise I can post some pics I've taken if you'd like.
