Axle wrap on stock truck?

Just a thought here... how much axle wrap do stock 4x4's like mine have? And do they even make traction bars for a stock truck?

Yes, you can put traction bars on a stock truck....even a lowered truck for that matter.


As for how much you'll have will depend on your setup as far as how much power you are putting down and your tires.


On my stock height 07, stock motor and 325mm wide tires I can feel a very small amount but not enough to cause any vibration or wheel hop.

My 99 wont spin the tires without wheel hop. The good thing is these tires have lasted longer than any tires I have ever had before.

Yes a company makes all sorts of customs traction bars.

Have a buddy get in your truck, while you look through the wheel well,..when he stomps on it,..take a look at the pinion,...if it jumps up drastically,...you may need to get something to fix it.

Here's what mine looked like.....4.5" Icon lift with 39.5" Iroks

Another video showing traction bars (in this case One Up Offroad traction blocks) keeping the axle locked down and not allowing the pinion to climb the ring gear:

FYI, Denny's truck is running a modified 5.9 CR Cummins with 40" Toyos under a 12-13" lift.
