Keep the rear axle in your 2014-2019 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel planted under all conditions with a set of Traction Bars. Wheel hop and axle wrap occur when the stored energy in the suspension is suddenly released causing the axle to bounce up and down violently, resulting in traction loss. If your vehicle is experiencing wheel hop or axle wrap under hard acceleration, then traction bars are what you need. Most traction bars feature a steel tube construction, with one end installing onto the frame and the other onto the rear axle. Wheel hop and axle wrap don't only cause traction loss, in some cases they also result in major component damage to driveshafts, yokes, suspension, and even internal differential parts. 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 your vehicle, preference, and fabrication skills, traction bars can be purchased as a bolt-on kit or universal kit that requires welding. Traction bars are the perfect addition for any competition-built or street performance pickup. Hop over to XDP and get your rear axle under control with a set of high-quality traction bars! Typically, a short bed truck will run a bar around 72" in length and a long bed will run an 86" bar. Traction bars and hardware kits are available from industry leading brands like Longhorn Fab Shop, HSP Diesel, Cognito, Tough Country, and more! Traction bars are available in different lengths that are depending on the cab and bed length of your truck.
