Traction bar length for lifted Excursion.

I am looking at getting a set of PMF traction bars. Was wondering if the short bed length bars would be good for my truck, or are they to short or possibly to long. Any help is great, thanks.

So with this being said, a short bed length bar should do the trick?

I had Trevor build me custom lenght set for my X...I think they were 58". Trevors bars are the best X improvement for the rear suspension. Also, I only have about 4.5" of lift.

Dieselcrawler is correct. The Excursion frame is a few inches shorter and is shaped a little differently in the rear sections.
