Anyone have any recommendations for traction bars? I'm running a 4" lift. Thanks.

Cognito makes a nice basic traction bar

Any pics or DIYs of guys making their own. I've been talking about this for 6 months. Got the heim joints, metal, shop, etc. I can get pretty creative, just wanted to get a base idea of how everything is welded up before I go trying to fab something thats in the wrong place or wrong size/length.

^^just cut measure and weld. That's all there is to it really. Me and my brothe have made a few that turned out pretty good. Make sure you use a heavy duty bar though, the longer they are the easier they seem to bend..

My truck is too slow to need heavy duty. Some 1/8"x2" flat bar should work perfectly:rolleyes:

I got some pretty good stuff in mind. Gotta love having a cousin-in-law that owns a big welding company with spare pipe sitting all over the place.
