How are those track bars in the rear helping you? And where did you get them?

Tires look sick by the way...You stole them

traction bars from James duff. There about $300 or so. They work AWESOME! They suck ass for off road because it stiffens up the rear end and you get no flex. But for putting the rubber down and traction, unbelievable. No axle wrap, just power righ to the ground.

If you want to elminate the axle wrap but still be able to offroad, I would get that 3rd link deally. It goes form the diff up by the T-case, this allows flex

Hmm...usually track bars have a "shackle" on them. I dont see how they would limit your flex either if they are able to pivot. I'll have to look into them. Thanks for the info.

they bolt on top the leaf spring were your plate goes. So they are solid to the leaf pack and solid mount to the frame. Now if these had heims on them all around they prolly would function better. I do love them tho. When I installed on my lifted truck I only did the passanger side at the time. When you got on it, the truck would literally push to the front over to the drives side, simiply cause the pass side was hooking up. Very impressed. I think they will work great for plowing this year.
