Aggie007 Traction Bars

I finally got around to building my traction bars. I bought the materials from Ballistic Fabrication. I painted last night so hopefully in the next few days I will have installed pics. Here are some for now though, sorry about the crappy cell-phone pics:

I have $250 in all the parts. Just the tubing was $150. I should mount them Friday so I will have some pics then.

I put a heim at the top because a poly joint wouldn't flex as well and bind as the rear axle articulates and the springs compress and decompress. A heim at the upper mount will let the bar rotate and pivot. A poly bushing will too, just not as well.

I went out of town without mounting them. My misalignment spacers hadn't come in the mail yet. I will install the bars Monday and take some pics, I assume my spacers are in by now. Any time you want to make the drive we can fab a set of bars for your truck. Long as you are buying beer.

looks good i have a similar setup but made all my mounts out of 3/8 plate and used a piece of sch40 1in sleeved by a piece of 1-1/4 sch40 cause the pipe was free so was the plate the only thing i paid for was the 4 heim joint and the 4 adapters 2rh and 2lh so i can put a strap wrench on them and make em really tight for zero wrap at all
