Traction Bars

I am considering making a set of traction bars for my truck here pretty soon and was just curious if anyone has any input about traction bars for the front axle. I am just curious if this would work for the front as well. \

Thanks, Sam

waste of time, traction bars dont actually do their job properly with leaf springs, they help with wheel hop but dont plant power to the ground like they should. its worthless on the front you want to transfer power to the rear.

Right I plan on doing the rear either way, I have just seen and have had wheel hop in the front when in 4 wheel drive before (not in this truck) but the one I had before it. I also went in the dirt alot more with it too. By the way I havent changed my sig yet or my pic but the truck has changed since the pic that is up there. Its got an 8" lift and 36's

Look into ladder bars, might be more worth the time invested!
