Traction Bars????

I'm looking at getting some traction bars. I was gonna get Farmboys, but I think they went out of business or something (please correct me if Im wrong). So now Im on the hunt for a good setup. Advise given would be great help.

Im going to still be driving my truck everyday. Well pretty close to it I got a grocery getter to get me around most of the time. But that and towing and I will be taking it to the track and maybe pulling some sleds occasionally. I was thinking of going with a OUO set.

Hey Blue I talked to them and they said I would pretty much get the same set up that you have. My question to you is. Since its a traction block type system does just installing it mean your rear end will be lifted. Or can you keep your current height? Also does it effect your ground clearance?
