do you mean traction bars? The front end has a "track bar" that keeps the front end centered.

For tractions bars, glacier Diesel power makes a good set. I have the superlift ones, and would recommend the GDP bars instead. The superlift ones didnt' seem to make that much difference on my rig. I know john barber (jbarker) on here has some traction bars he sells too. I definitely recommend talking to him. He is always ready and willing to help. He, along with Jason at Dieselnut.com, are my go to guys.

If you're handy with a welder, search "ladder bars" on here. We've had many dicussions about making your own. I've made some and were very good. Basicaly identical to the one in the link above. Build them yourself for less than $100.

No offense man, just read that thread. But about 5 of so feet usually is good. Find a buddy that can weld and make your own. Save the cash for more mods!!!

HAHA! Thanks. You gotta know somebody that welds? Just ask around. Find somebody at a fab shop and bribe him with cash for a after hours job. It'll only take him about 10 min. to weld the ends up. It's really simple. There's alot of info in that thread. Just read up!!

check out Farmboy Fabrications 2007 . Jesse Todd (the owner/operator) made his first dodge set for me a couple years back. All very high quality tubing and hemi joints. Weld to the frame and axle tubes. Under $500 for em shipped to my door and painted my color choice. Had no problems with em. Definitely helped my ram go straight.
