03-current Ram FFS Brand Heavy Duty Traction Bar Kit
These parts are to build a hardcore, heavy duty, no rattle and good looking traction bar set for your 03-current leaf spring Ram truck. (Built to match our radius long arm for the 03-13) We’ve seen all kinds of weak and undersized parts and ugly brackets, this is not that kit. Tubing available in 4’, 5’ or 6’ for cut to length perfect fit. 5 feet covers most installs. Pre made link (custom length requests ok) options available below.
The various tubing lengths available are not indicative of fitness for a particular application. Some preliminary measuring from the axle tube; to a suitable mounting point on the frame IS HIGHLY RECOMMEDNED.
Pre welded/powdered link lengths have been tested on nothing. See above. We will build to suit. We assume no responsibility for fitment.
If you have had problems with the rear axle wandering and wheel hopping under the heavy torque, be it in the sand, dirt, or putting down a thick smokey burnout on pavement, this kit is a solution for you. It features a pair of arms that firmly locate your axle, and help you keep your tires firmly planted. This will let you put all the traction you have to the ground without giving up any suspension travel or ground clearance.
Even without traction problems, these with firmly locate you rear axle and prevent rear wander due to road imperfections, not something you likely thought about but would notice if you later remove your bars. Remarkable difference.
These work great in conjunction with a rear lift block, increasing the traction bars leverage against axle wrap, making a strong triangle between them, your lift block and the leaf spring acting as an upper arm.
