Farmboy Traction Bars

I've read alot about the farmboy traction bars, but I can't seem to locate them. Any Help? Do ProComp bars work w/ 7" Icon lift?

There is some info. about Farmboys being closed down for the time being due to restructuring/moving they are supposed to start selling in the near future to dealers only then you can buy from them. The pro comp bars did not get high remarks Jeff 08stroker250 had them for a short time and removed them he will probably chime in and give some details on them!

Like Chris said, Farmboy is currently in a restructuring phase.

My truck was stock height with the Pro Comp bars, so it is hard to say how they would work on a lifted truck. Rudy's Diesel Performance ran them on their crew cab when it had an 8" lift and 37's, and from what I remember he like them. The bars are designed for a truck with at least 4" of lift, so it was stupid for me to purchase them in the first place. If your willing to spend the money, I would look in to Precision Metal Fab and One Up Offroad. Both companies provide a stellar product.

Thanks fellas for the replys. The pro comp bars seem to be up my ally at $500. I would go with one of these other companies if they were comperable in price. At $900 thats a little steep for me.

If you find a good metal Fab shop close to you, you should be able to get ones made like the Farm Boys for around $3-400.. I showed a local shop there bars and they said they could make me some for $350 with Hyme Joints.

Just remember $500 is just bars the Pmf and Ouo use a traction block to tie them together. Ouo does have bolt on bars also but i think the block setup works better! I have the Pmf setup and it works well!
