Make sure your rear axle stays planted in your gas vehicle with a set of Traction Bars from XDP. Axle wrap or wheel hop happen when stored energy in the suspension from axle rotation is suddenly released and causes the axle to bounce up and down violently, resulting in a loss of traction. Traction bars are typically built from steel tubing with one end mounted to the frame and the other to the axle. A set of traction bars might be just what you need if you're dealing with wheel hop or axle wrap while under hard acceleration. Wheel hop and axle wrap can cause more than just traction loss, in many cases damage to driveshafts, yokes, suspension parts, and differential components is common. Traction bars are fairly simple in design, once installed a solid link is created between the axle housing and frame to prevent axle rotation.
Depending on vehicle application, fabrication skills, and preference, traction bars can come as a complete kit or a universal kit that requires fabrication. In most cases, a short bed truck will require a 72" length and a long bed truck will use an 86". Traction bars are the perfect addition for any competition-built or street performance pickup. Hop on over to XDP and get your truck back on track with a set of high-quality traction bars! Traction bars come in various lengths depending upon the cab and bed configuration of your truck. Hardware kits and complete traction bars are available from industry leading brands like HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, Longhorn Fab Shop, and more!
