Tractions bars built and on

Got my traction bars on AGAIN, I tried a single bar first and bent the hell out of them so I had to go back and redo them and added asecond bar and a gusset. I hope these hold, I also got frontend limiters on and got a couple pics. I was hoping to hit the track tomorrow but my burner for my chip was the wrong format so I have to wait for Jody to send me another chip.

I also have the truck up in the forsale section.

Re: Tractions bars built and on

No I don't think it would have held, a single bar set up just not enough for these trucks w/ the weight that they are at.I just wanted to try it for the hell of it , I pretty much knew the answerr before I did it though.

Re: Tractions bars built and on

the pics are in the 1st post there is a webshots link, if you run the rear traction bars and the front end limiters the truck rides like hell, w/o the fronts on its not as bad but still a firm ride.
