The best one are going to be ones you build yourself but you can checkout any offroad supply and they should be able to hook you up with a decent set. also you could ask around in the vender jungle but you will have to be patient.

I would be checking out your driveline. If you do not have any lift right now and your already breaking things. You may want to check your driveline angle, as well as your differential. You may have something that needs repair.

Your not breaking an axle for no reason. You have something out of whack. Wether it is backlash on the pinion ring gear, or driveline angle, or a bad bearing in the diff.

I had the same exact problem with my 95 f250. Whenever I floored it I got some nasty axle and it ended up shearing my drivers side centering pin on the rear axle and then the axle slipped back on the leaf pack. Not Good. Anyways I did exactly what you were thinking, I installed ladder bars from tuff country after consulting with a mechanic I have worked with on many occasions and he agreed this would be the best solution. Here are the ladder bars I bought the price isnt too bad,Ladder Bars by Tuff Country - 1980-96 Ford F150/F250/F350 (4WD Only)(1 Pair): Ultimate Auto Accessories hope this helps!
