Traction/Ladder bars??

Couple questions...
1)Can I get these for an early 99 with OUT a lift (factory height)

2) Where can I get the cheapest priced (not quality) ones at?
I just want something for a little more security of keeping my rear end where its supposed to be when I hook to some thing. Thanks!

You can use them on a none lifted truck. As far as cheap you might have to make them if you want cheap. There's cheap ones you can buy but you will have a big rick of binding. I'm actually looking at getting some for myself. From what I've been learning you want to find ladder bars/traction bars that will allow your axle to float and not just move up and down. If you build or by them I was told they need to be the same degree as your drive shaft. This is just a few things I've learned in my pursuit of getting some. Marty has a nice set up you might want to look at. Others will fill in or correct me if I'm wrong

Marty goes by the screen name Maintain. The bars don't need to follow the angle of the driveshaft at all. I don't know who started that nonsense.

I agree with not needing to follow the angle of the driveline......after all, the driveline has a slip joint on it to allow the length to change during suspension travel.
