Nearly every truck has a wheel hop issue right off of the factory floor. Even under stock power levels this wheel hopping can cause extremely costly repairs, including broken driveshafts, broken axle pinion yokes, premature u-joint failure and wearing of suspension components. On top of these issues anytime the wheel hops, it is not touching the pavement. If it is not touching the pavement, you’re not getting traction!

Longhorn Fab Shop has created a simple, cost effective solution to the problem. These traction bars are affordable enough for the daily driver truck, yet strong enough for dedicated sled pullers and drag racers. Whether you drive your truck to watch the competition, or trailer it in because you ARE the competition, you'll love the strength, design, adjustability, and ease of installation.

KIT VARIATIONS: For owners of short bed vehicles, the bars measure out to 72" center hole to center hole, where long box owners will receive 86" bars. In order to be able to tailor these traction bars to suit each driver and vehicle, Longhorn offers their rod ends in two variations. For trucks that are daily drivers, tow vehicles, and really don't see a lot of abuse, we recommend going with their standard grade rod ends. But for those that either simply demand the best, or are hard on the trucks through aggressive takeoffs, sled pulling, etc. we recommend upgrading to the Hot Street Rod Ends. If you're not sure which kit is right for you, just give us a call or shoot an e-mail our way, and we would be happy to steer you in the right direction.

I would by this product again, easy install, would recommend
Easy to install, noticed a night and day difference on my 6"" lifted 1995 f250 ext cab long bed with 35"" tires. Love the look, I get no more axle wrap and wheel hop. Would recommend to anyone!

Best traction bars for the money!
I am not a career welder but had my buddy who is dial in my Lincoln gas mig and burned the perfect fitting axle brackets in with ease. Powder coat on bars was perfect and the ballistic joint upgrade is a must! They are a steal at the upgraded price! A+. Will be ordering another set soon for my other Powerstroke.

very easy to deal with and great products

Does the kit come with all of the brackets, u bolts, bolts, etc needed to install??

That kit is a weld on kit at the axle side so no u-bolts included but it would have all the other necessary brackets and hardware to install.


Will this kit work on a 97 cclb f350??

These are a universal fit application, should be no issue on this application. However fabrication may be required.


Does this come with both bars??

Yes it is a set or pair of traction bars.


Where can I find instructions for install and preload adjustments??

I can dig some up and email them to you.


What is the difference in this one versus the exact same product for 600ish ??

As noted, the professional grade versions are a Massive 2"" steel bars, and twice the thickness of their standard bars.They will also include heavier brackets, and higher end Rod Ends.


2012 ram 2500 crew cab/short bed with a 6"" lift. Will these fit??

Yes, should be good to go! - AW


Will these work on a 2012 Dodge Ram 2500 6.7 Cummins with a 3 inch leveling kit??

Yes -MC
