I finally got the drag link and traction bars installed. It made a huge difference! The shift are nice and smooth. The transmission does not hesitate at all. I highly recommed these to anyone. I am stock height and after installing them i couldnt believe how much axel wrap a stock height truck has. :thumb:

Aside from shifting, how would you say your overall ride was affected from the traction bars? No affect? More firm?

Will do! I was really surprised at how big a difference they made. I figured they would make a big difference at WOT but even at little to mid throttle they made a huge difference.

Trevor's stuff is definitely top notch. Going to get a set of his traction bars when I lift my truck.

What size block did you get for your stock truck? Is yours just a 4x4 model or do you have the FX4 package?

It looks like its way stronger than stock. Plus it comes with a replaceable 1 ton tie rod end on the pitman arm. If the stock one goes out you have to replace the whole drag link. If this one goes out i can just buy the tie rod end. Mine was shot so i thought i would give it a try.

Just put my PMF track bars on yesterday.... "BIG" difference to me, was also able to pull the 5th wheel to the shop today with them, I use the 210 HP NEGR and the shifts prior to the install were harsh to say the least, after the install it no longer jerks the truck from under you seems like a normal shift now. I have had these since May wish I had installed them sooner, but all I can say is Great job Trevor, the special plates you made for me due to the airbag configuation worked perfect...NEW truck again!!! Thanks Trevor for your help and time... just wish it would stop raining here in Washington so I can go play.
