I had a difficult decision to make a few months ago. I wanted to get the rear lifted a bit more and get a set of traction bars due to a takeoff vibration in the driveline. I found the OUO stuff posted up and after pricing those out I figured I'd give them a shot. I started with an ICON 4.5" lift; I added the ICON TEI up front and swapped in the OUO 6" rear lift block traction bar setup for the rear.


I can tell you the overall improvement in the ride has exceeded my expectations. The truck sits just where I want it and handles exceptionally well on the back roads and highways. I need to drive it more to see if there are no driveline vibrations but at HWY speeds I have NO vibes with an unmodified carrier bearing. The rear OUO block is a flat block but gives me a full 6" lift on the stock springs.

Being in VA and living closest to Off Road Innovations in Yorktown, VA I had Kirk and the boys do the install work. ORI comes highly recommended from friends of mine around VA. ORI made every effort to get this install done for me and worked around their schedule to get it completed. I will definitely do more business with ORI and will recommend them to my friends wanting to buy parts or gear and needing a quality shop to perform the install work.

To Dave and his crew at OUO :rock and Kirk and his crew at ORI in Yorktown :rock I can't express enough the quality of your product, the professionalism of the install or the amount of happiness I have when I drive my truck.

I'M STOKED!!! :woohoo

You need to see the video of a sled puller that runs these bars. He dumps the clutch and it just tugs the sled like nothing. I'm talking some SERIOUS power too, not just some stock truck sled pulling. IIRC he's got like an 8-10" as well and making some HP/TQ at the ground. His video shows several angles when he's pulling the sled. I'll need to find it for you.

That sleeve is where the two parts of the bar connect to one another. You slide one into the other, drill and with a crush sleeve bolt the two pieces together. You can get them in a fixed length bar without the sleeve. I choose this route so if I decide I need to part the gear out any other truck could run these bars.

I cant see the videos from work but it may be here.
