Description
 
With low-geared axles and high torque engines, soft long travel leaf springs can distort under power—this can cause damage to springs and blow u-joints. Ordinary long tube, fixed mount traction bars limit travel as the rear axle cycles up and down because the axle also needs to move back and forth. Our new traction bar has a “V” frame designed center link for strength and utilizes a specially designed shackle to eliminate axle wrap. The bar runs between the mufflers, paralleling the drive line; protecting it. It also maintains proper u-joint and CV angles under power. The main bar attaches to a high clearance cross-member and shackle. The cross-member mounts up between the frame rails for maximum clearance and helps protect your CV joint and output shaft from trail obstacles. Compatible with our Dual Exhaust system; other systems may require modification. Welding brackets to the differential housing is required. Kit now includes two sets of axle brackets in order to fit either early or late 9” axle housings.

In our continuing quest to constantly up the ante, we’ve recently made an improvement by adding 1/8” plate gussets, along with adding a new cross member for C-channel Broncos and axle brackets for 8.8” axles. The combination also allows for an application for 78-79 Broncos with a factory 9”.

Have a high horsepower Early Bronco? 99% of all our torque tamer purchasers are fine with the standard version but we have now added a beefed up "HD" version for the guys with hotter motors and heavy right feet. Between the new double sheer gussets and a .188 wall lower bar and sleeved upper bar, this is sure to hold the rear end to the ground! (If ordering the "HD" version, please let us know if you have a '77 rear differential.)

Please note: this is designed to work with a stock Bronco configuration. Please consult us before ordering if you have an aftermarket transmission, transfer case or axle. It is designed to work with our dual exhaust kits, some mods may be required to work with what is on your vehicle.

Long Travel Traction, heavy duty March 20, 2018
Reviewer: James Nichols from Little Rock, AR United States  
I received my traction bar in a timely manner. It was an easy experience. I ordered it on-line, asked for a shipping quote before shipping and received it promptly. After approving the shipment it was only a few days to arrive. Everything was well packed so the bar was in excellent condition. I can't install just yet, as I have to cut out my mufflers and relocate them. But that won't stall the project very long. With 450HP, I need better axle wrap protection and this should do fine. This thing is beefy.
