Why would they be any different than for a single rear wheel?

I love my Caltracs. I have a set that is several years old. They still look like new. Mine have been down the strip countless times. They will get the job done.

Consider adding a protective layer before you install. The paint doesn't hold up. I use Rust Bullet.

I've been very pleased with my t/tex bars on my 4th gen. No added noise, no binding, and no change in ride quality while fully eliminating wheel hop. A friend of mine has cal-tracs, and they make a bit of noise when set up correctly for our application.; In my experience no paint, powder, wrap, or wrapped paint, or powder stands up if you run gravel roads, or they sand the roads a lot where you drive, so just expect to have to have whatever need to be redone within 2 years.

Just curious... why would you want/need traction bars on a 2014+? Doesn't the 4link take care of that?

I have been interested in the BDS Recoil's myself...............However they are still only showing GMC/Chebby as being available.
Wish they would hurry up on some Ram stuff.

Only the 3/4 tons have the 4 link. The 1 tons are still leaf sprung, and require traction bars at some point.
