Trac bars

I've been lookin at ways to make some traction bars and was wondering what would be the recommended length for my truck and was wondering if i put them on my truck and for whatever reason went off roading would they have enough flex to do that or would they break? Or is there a way to build them where they can flex, still do their job, and not be banging driving down the road?

I have to get some too. Bugs the hell out of me! Had 2" spacers in the rear of my old LLY with 7"-9" Cognito and it looked sexy!

mine are 56" long eye to eye. built them myself out of 2'x1/4 pipe. with hiem joints on the ends. Flex just fine off roading. ive had mine in plenty of wrapped situation and they have held up just fine. usually the rule of thumb is to make it as close to parallel with the drive shaft as you can.
