You need to purchase that to install the Pro Comp traction bars. For some reason the mounting hardware is sold seperately.

the pro comp mounting kit and traction bars will fit. you do not need to be lifted, or lifted with a pro comp kit.

That being said, it is not a very good traction bar set up. Take a look at the PRG traction bars

Those were the first set I looked at.... for about 30 seconds due to the price. I only have $200 max right now for them.

So its either quality PRG, or crap waste of money Pro-comp?

Any other suggestions?

Has anyone on here fabricated their own bars and used the pro comp mounting hardware to attach it. I am thinking about getting traction bars later this year but I keep coming back to favoring the ones I can bolt instead of the welded brackets. I would be real interested to hear if anyone has fabricated their own with a set of bolt on mounting hardware.

Unless you plan on taking your leafs apart and cycling the suspension, you're better off buying a set. Traction bars are not just some tube welded from the axle to the frame, they have to allow for full travel and articulation.

Also check out N-Fab Works...he has quality traction bars
Where is he located? Website? got a price range by chance?

I really want TB's, don't care if I have to weld or not. Only problem is my budget :(

I'm pretty sure there was a guy on either CT or TT that fabricated his own traction bars. Maybe not everything, but I remember heim joints being discussed.

Another option for you where budget is limited are the Hellwig HD Traction Springs. They're a bolt over the leaf springs and definitely help with axle wrap.

So how does it work with the other welded on setups? Do they show you the exact spot to weld on the front bracket? If not then I would imagine the installation wouldn't be any different than making your own. To cycle the suspension couldn't you just jack the back end up to release any built up tension in the springs and then slowly set it back down, making sure to chalk the wheels once they contact the ground? or is there more to it then what I am thinking.

A lot more then you're thinking, you didnt take in to account full bump or anything. People get so much $$ for their traction bars because the time it takes to set them up right.
