what trac bars for stock f250?

I've been looking for a traction bar kit for my stock 2003 f250. Most companies have them for lifted truck. Does anyone recommend a certain kit for my stock truck?

I like the fabtech ones but they only have them listed for lifted trucks. On ebay there is a nice kit, I think It's called fat- boy trac bars, but they ask all kinds of questions before your order, like block size,etc. I just need a good simple kit for my stock truck.

OUO with either a bolt-on or weld-on axle mount. I've used a few different brands/designs, and nothing compares to OUO for quality and performance. I was not impressed with Fabtech as I broke the mounts and cracked and bent the bars. Any floating design is not ideal for the high torque of modern diesel powered trucks.

I'm gonna go with the ouo trac bars. I'll call to make sure but it looks like the bolt-on ones are for a stock truck, since it does not ask for lift height and the pics dont show any lift block, etc.

thanks
