Holy Traction Bars...

Man these things are big. Seen plenty of pictures of them but in person they are long. Got them from Jesse @ Farmboy Fab. Awsome bars, very well constructed.

The front mounts bolt on to the bottom side of the frame rail. The rears weld to the axle tubes.

look great

only thing i would change is have the rear bracket longer giving it "more" leverage so that there is less force on the bars themself witch is important in sled pulling. But if these were for fourwheeling they would be great because its tight to the axle and still have great flex

Just another 6leaker Thanks to RCD

I'm a bigger fan of ladder bars than traction bars. I really like the Fabtech setup and I'll probably build some similar eventually. They don't bind under articulation as much.

I think the differences have been covered in depth. I went with these as I've only heard good things about them and should do what I need done.
