Best traction bars for a stock level truck

Hi there,
Looking through lots of treads, but most people have a levelling kit or a lift on there truck, and since I installed my spartan tuner, I know that I need a set of traction bars, so I'm wondering what the best bang for the buck is with them.

Thanks and appreciate any help!

One Up Offroad, they have a bolt on kit for a stock truck.

These are the only ones I would run on a truck.

I recommend Precision Metal Fab's traction blocks.

I have newton lift's traction bar setup. Always worked well for me I've had them for about 40k miles or more

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

This is the setup that I ran on my 2008 F-250.

PMF Single Traction Bar Kit

Trevor offers multiple options for the customer. They are fairly priced and work flawlessly. When I do traction bars on my 2012, I will be going with Precision Metal Fab once again.

You also can't beat the customer service provided by PMF.

I have newtons traction bars on my f350. I'm leveled up front but had him make me a stock rear block for the traction bars in the rear. I love them. Had them over a year and they have not came loose, and the red powder coat still looks awesome even after plowing. All hardware looks great too.

I have PMFs and like Jeff said, great product, great customer service. Trevor is a h#ll of a guy. You can't go wrong with OUO either. I have never personally seen or rode in a truck with Newton's so I won't comment on them. IMO Tbars are definitely worth it and IMO this isn't a mod to go cheap on (Fabtech comes to mind).
