Traction Bars?

I looked around a little on the pulling websites and cant seem to find any threads about how to make traction bars. Id like to make my own because the ones you can buy are outrageously priced and I know I can do the welding myself if I can just have some ideas.

If I could get some of you guys to post some pics of your current set ups I would be in your debt.

Also I think I will probably go with a single square tube but im not sure if that way it would bend or twist.

Would round be better?

search google for homemade traction bars, seen more dodge people make them than anyone. main thing is if you are gonna drag the truck make them shorter, for sled pulling its better if they are longer. hope this helps, making me a set soon for my truck too.

Yup He did. Nice write up. Go to rosewood diesel, about us, and go from there. It only costs like $65.

Comp D has a good thread. PSN has a thread to i believe
very easy to make. make sure to use geometry on it and nust just put them where you "want". they won't help unless you align them with the drive shaft
