PMF Traction bars installed.

A few pics of PMF (Trevors) bars installed. Work as advertised and look great to boot. If you've seen them before likely no big deal. For those on fence as what to buy I'd highly recommend going in this direction. The Jimmy joint on the front for better articulation is a nice design.

I've been throwing around the idea of traction bars. How much difference could you tell with them? My truck feels like the rear end lifts up under hard acceleration, even passing someone.

Certainly makes the rear feel more solid and planted. I did 4.30's and a true-trac at the same time so my results may be a little skewed. The fact you're now putting weight on the rear under acceleration does feel different.

They were around $900 and some change with powder coating and shipping. Compared to what the big name vendors charge for inferior bars it's a deal.

Install was a breeze. Dropped it off at the shop and picked it up a few hours later. On a serious note, he said they had a few challenges but nothing out of the ordinary for fabricated parts.
