Here's a pic of mine that I got from Trevor at Precision Metal Fab. They're actually traction bars with a built in block that they all connect up to, so it makes it really solid.



His website is HOME - Precision Metal Fab and he is a sponsor on here (NotStock is his username). Very very solid product, quite a few members have been ordering stuff from him on here....

I run One Up Offroad on my personal truck and they are what I recommend. IMO, the best bars on the market. They limit axle wrap without any binding.

Dan,

I'm interested in getting a pair of traction bars on my truck and going with the OUO ones. Looking at that link, what is the difference in the adaptable length or fixed length and the short gusset or large gusset. What are the advantages of either or the best set-up. Thanks.

Trent

Hey Trent,


With the really high HP trucks, they will benefit from the additional strength of the large gussets.
Other than that....we typically only use/recommend the large gussets on trucks with 37s or larger to keep them looking too big under the truck.



On my 2007 I run the small gusset as I had 33s when I put them on and have 35s now.
