all my friends who have solid axles DO NOT run trac bars. i dont feel its necessary as long as my front end is setup right. hell, even something like a steering stabilizer isnt needed if everything is setup right. We'll see though.

I've seen plenty of trucks on leafs without trac bars. Works with some, not so much with others. Largely depends on use as well.

I run with no trac bar. Draglink to high steer arm to tie rod. DD every day all day. No issues. Drive fine for what it is.

Yeah...I still don't understand why there's a need for a trac bar on a leaf front! lol. Coils, YES. Leafs, NO. lol.


Looks awesome, Randy! Minus the whole 12.50" tire sticking fully outside the fender thing. lol.

Truck looks good...

I know YJs have track bars front and rear. I always thought it was a little weird when I first saw it.
