Yes I know what traction bars do, this isn't my first rodeo.

Your axle wrap is NOT from the locker.

If you want to eliminate almost all of the axle wrap, eliminate the lift blocks; even the 2" lift blocks. Do do this, you would need either lift springs or a shackle.

By the looks of your avatar, you want to have as much articulation as possible. The traction bars WILL limit what articulation you currently have.

Are you using your truck for burn outs or track use? Or are you using it for off road use?

If you are going the track route, then yes you will want traction bars. If you are going for off road use, then you don't want traction bars.

off road use and you couldnt be more wrong, trac bars are the best solution to axle wrap. im guessing u dont off-road much nor know a lot about it? b/c when ur doing hill climbs or going throught rough trails, you get wheel hop and axle wrap on hill climbs. so obviously this is your "first rodeo" with knowledge about trac bars. hence why there attached to the axle and shackle...

What type of trac bars are you using?

What type of off roading do you do?

James Duff traction bars will limit your flex because of the way they are solid mounts.
