Traction bars

Who's running what for traction bars. Seems like everyone is running PMF but $500 for a piece of round stock seems a little expensive. Anyone have reviews on them or any other traction bars

I looked at newton, are they just a single kit or duel? I think it would look ugly if a single kit wasn't centered in the axle.

If its $550 for a duel kit I'll order them up after I get the rad ordered, dam 6.4

Anyone ran pro comp. I know their probably not the best on the market but I'm happy with the power from a tuner, intake, exhaust and highly doubt I will be going with turbos or any other huge power mods.

Plus a local dealer that I love dealing with can get me a set for $440 tax and shipping in, vs $550 plus shipping + border fees. So Newtons or a similar company would cost $700ish to my door.

Country aggie also loves his pmf bars, said it cleared up his firm shifts and some shift flare. That's what I'm doing next!
