Description Extended Information
With low-geared axles and high torque engines, soft long travel leaf springs can distort under power—this can cause damage to springs and break 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 and helps protect your CV joint and output shaft from trail obstacles. Compatible with our Dual Exhaust system; other exhaust systems may require modification. Welding brackets to the differential housing is required. If you have a '77 Bronco or a later model 9" axle housing make sure you select the torque tamer for a '77 Bronco.

  • Completely eliminate U-Joint failure
  • Stop axle wrap in it's tracks
  • Doesn't compromise suspension travel
  • No DIY or Engineering required, comes fully powder coated and ready to install
  • This design works great on or off road, does not bind up like others on the market
  • Only welding required is to the axle, leave the guess work to us

Last year we beefed up the design for Broncos with hotter motors and heavy right feet. We are confident that our Torque Tamer can handle the rowdiest of Bronco builds.

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 all of our exhaust kits, some mods may be required to work with what is on your vehicle.

(Please leave us a note in the "Comments" section and let us know which axle you are using in your build. What year? Which axle? Full width or EB width?) Specifically, please let us know if you have a '77 rear differential.

We also added 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”. See #5328 for 1978-96 Broncos.

Reviewer: Tim Hammermeister from Yakima, WA United States  
I haven’t had the chance to install this product yet, but I can definitely say that it’s well-built and I have no doubt that it will solve my axle wrap issues. Nice work, Duff!!

5 of 5 NO MORE AXLE WRAP!!! October 1, 2019
Reviewer: Jeffrey Breckenridge from Industry, PA United States  
For a long time I ran the original James Duff leaf spring mounted traction bars, but they could only control the wrap at a low degree.  Along comes the Duff Tuff Torque Tamer and now she not only plants without wrap upon hard acceleration,  but the axle wrap is virtually eliminated at the most extreme twists of my 3.5" Monster Suspension!!!  With a center mounting point at the differential and frame crossmember, it travels as far as the suspension does with zero decline to its effectiveness!  I'm in the process of building a 351 that will produce a substantial amount more torque than my existing 5.0, I won't think twice about mashing the skinny pedal with the Torque Tamer keeping all that torque under control!

5 of 5 Something you may pass over but shouldn't! September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Tom Hyde, Lick Creek Restorations from Ceres, VA United States  
These things work exactly as described. If you have larger tires, more horse power or lower gears, you have axle wrap... I've installed several of these now and love the immediate improvements you experience. We have them on our Duck build which has all of the 3 indicators. It immediately improved shifting and stopping. No longer do I experience a clunky shift or a squatting take off. The same can be said for our 94 that we just lifted and added lower gears for towing, it too had a clunky 1-2 and 2-3 shift from the performance transmission as well as it had a new lift and larger tires to boot. The truck starts and stops better than it ever did from the factory as well as the abrupt shifts common with a shift kit are now smooth and almost seamless thanks to the Torque Tamer. Its amazing the difference we feel now when towing our heavy camper with it, firm and under control. These are also part of our performance suspension package we now install.

5 of 5 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.
