Traction Bars again

Wanting to get some traction bars. Looked at the OUO versions, pro comp, and superlift forcemax versions. What do you guys think. I like the ouo small gussets. Price is about right I guess. Gonna start doing some truck pulls here soon so any experience with would be nice.

Just to give an update I tried calling Farmboy fabrications today and while I was on hold I lost the call and was too busy after that. Can you believe that none of the shops around here to in house custom fabrications. I this place. I like the ouo's but what about them is adjustable? The length, can you center your axle with them, whats the deal? Also i'm sure that farmboy fab knows but what kinda length would I be looking at? Crew cab short bed. And I like the rize bars but I just can't see my self paying that much for some when I can get some for half the price that'll do the job.

The OUO's are adjustable in that you can choose you lenght as you are installing in order to get the lenght that you want and to choose the mounting spot around anything that may be in the way. I have also helped install and repair a set of rize bars.... I'm gonna repeat the REPAIR, alot.

The Rize bars from what I see just bolt on. Now I haven't experimented with them myself so I don't know for certain but I'm not sure if I would trust them to hold up to repeated abuse. But like I said, I have experimented with them myself. What repairs you have to make?

I'm making upwards of 650rwhp on a daily basis with 38" tires and haven't had an issue with them. They are a bolt on system, but hey, so is the front suspension.

I just realized in my last post I said that "I have experimented with them." Just clearing up that I haven't. I like the way they look, and not saying that with them being bolt on means that they won't do the job. I just see how if they couldn't. I trust your word Jesse on what you say especially if they're handling 650RWHP just fine. But none the less I prolly will not go with these as they will not fit the style of my 4-link setup in the front. I'm probably going to go with Farmboy Fabrications as the look will fit and they're half the price of the Rize bars.

I also have the OUO small gusset adjustable traction blocks. They are really nice soldid pieces. I like that they are not so bulky and noticable like some of the others on the market and they match my Icon 4 link really nice.
