Add a leafs will help, but not nearly as much as even the cheapest tract bar.

Anyone familiar with the JLP traction bars, people run them on the 5.0s but haven't seen any eco 4x4s with them, and probably won't lol since they are for 2wd.

They look like a good alternative to the Caltracs

I want something that won't hurt my ground clearance or travel. So far I've got nothing... The closest is the pro comp bars, but they hang too low.

Pinero, some of my boss's buddies say they run the ProComps with no travel issues.

Supposedly they still get full travel with deavers

I noticed you can by the ProComp brackets alone

Assuming they are the same mounting locations as the whole kit, a custom bar can be made up pretty easy that doesn't stick out so low

I'm going to get the pro comp bars, and modify them if need be.

Yeah, but I'm only lifting 1.5" higher than I am now. That's a 6"

I'll be sitting at the same height as a leveled raptor.

idk, it should just be a straight pulling force, Idk why they have it braced for a side load. May be in case you smack it on a rock..

The top bar should be more than enough to do the job, the lower bar will be cut off.

Get a shop to fab some instead of cutting off, but it will cost less, just some joints clamps ect u can get online. I was goon t fab the ones for my big truck befor I sold it.. It was cheaper to make them than buy theses and try and make them work, know what I mean??
