    I have brackets for traction bars but no traction bars. Bought the truck like that. I was wondering if you sell the recoil traction bars by itself with out the brackets? From the video I watched the brackets on my truck are look identical to the ones in the video. If you don’t it’s not a big deal just thought the recoil traction bars looked pretty cool. Thanks,

    Any chance these will be available for the 1/2 ton coil spring Rams? It’s all I’m missing on my Fox/BDS equipped ’14!!!

    Do these fit 2008 Ram 3500 dually? and since these recoil will this maintain the stock load/pull capacity like a ladder bar?

    I’ve got a 06 F350 crew long bed with an 8-inch BDS system on it. Are you going to have the recoil traction bars for a long bed anytime soon.

    Great Looking product. I have a 2016 Ford F250, Diesel …. I’ve leveled it, and put the appropriate Length Rancho RS9000 Shocks on. I’m Running 35 Inch Toyo’s, on 20 Inch Worx wheels, wondering if these traction bars will fit my rig. If so, I think you have a New customer.
    Thank you …..

    WOW … I got my BDS Recoil Traction bars Mounted. You guys shipped them out to Sound + Logic in Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Had to change the location of my Compressor and Air tank for my Train Horns ….. But that was to be expected. These Traction Bars are Wicked Nice. Very Happy and they make my 2016 F250 Look even sweeter than before. The ride is really great, NO Noise, Nothing, VERY pleased with them. Waited a long time for a traction bar like this. Thanks for an Awesome product.

    I just dropped my 2014 Silverado 1500 off at trail quest in Ohio to get the recoil bars installed tomorrow. How often do you need to grease the bars?

    Are these traction bars going to be coming out for the the 5-15 Tacomas. I have a 13 with those Pro-Comp ones. They keep rusting out…..It’s time for a change. It would be nice to install these to complement my 6″ BDS lift.

    I put too much grease in my traction bars and blew both o-rings out. Rocky from Tuff Trucks is tuning my lift next week and will have him re-insert the o-rings. My question is how difficult is it to fix yourself if it ever happened again? And are the o-rings 1 1/4″? Do I need to replace with new O-Rings? Thanks

    I am running you 1509 2.5 inch lift with a 5 inch rear block on my 2016 F-350 srw. I also have a titan 50 gal replacement fuel tank will your bars work with a titan tank? Also I haven’t seen a recommendation as to where the bar adjustment should be set for everyday driving and towing? Do the bar springs still allow some axle wrap?

    Carter, I have an 04 Excursion with an 8 inch lift. Rear axle was replaced with one from an F250 a few years ago. Would either the short or long bed mount kit work to install on my EX? I assume from the pictures I’ve seen of the front mounts that they require a flat section of frame to mount to. What’s the difference between the SB and LB mounting kits?

    Hi there the application chart says the Ford long box mounting brackets will fit a 99-up but when you go to the page it says 05-up. I want to clarify which one is correct. I am thinking about a set but my Ford is an 04. Also do you have any distributors in Alberta Canada. Thank you, Kevin

    I’m worried about the springs breaking over time, and noise after a while. Will either of these be an issue. My Superduty is not my DD, but I do pull a car trailer around from time to time, and take it camping pulling 3-4 four wheelers. I just can’t stand the axle wrap. It has a 4″ lift and sees light off-roading getting to our camp site a few times a year.

    Hey Carter –

    I have a 2011 Toyota Tundra Crewmax (2WD) with the 5.5 bed. I get a little axle wrap but nothing major. I understand these new RECOIL’s will help with that, but my main object right now is trying to beef up the rear to tow my 7,500lbs travel trailer. I’ve considered adding a leaf or air bags but have had mixed responses from various people I’ve talked to. If these RECOIL’s have 3000 lbs/in of adjustable resistance do you think they will handle the load once my trailer is hooked up? In other words, can I pre-set the setting on them prior to hooking up the trailer then re-set it depending on how much sagging down the weight causes prior to adjusting the weight distribution bars on the trailer? I’d like to consider these bars to accomplish both, correct axle wrap and be able to stabilize the load/haul. Can these two be done?…Thank you…Jorge

    I put these on my lifted 2012 f250 they work great but my concern is the rear brackets are touching my U bolts. I have tried to adjust them every possible way but they still make contact. Is this going to cause me any problems?

    I ordered a set of these for my 14 F350, two weeks ago. The vendor is blaming the delay on BDS. Saying that the items ship direct from the warehouse. They told me these bars are in high demand and production is holding up shipping. They’re telling me they emailed BDS and can’t get a response from them. Is this true? Sounds like a load bs to me. Not too happy at the moment, BDS and the vendor got their money….. now I sit empty handed without even having a shipped notice two weeks later.

    Hello, I have a 2005 F250 SD, Harley edition with an 8″ BDS lift kit. Could you give me the part numbers I need to purchase the correct brackets, etc. I currently have a homemade kit I welded and bracketed myself, it it is not holding up very well.

    2 part question…looking for taction bars for my 2010 f-450 CC LB dually 4wd.

    q1. this f-450 has a dana 110 rear axle….do you have a mounting kit for that?

    q2 if you do not have a mounting kit…I know I cam by a generic traction bar eyelet plate that mounts to the bottom of my leaf spring clamp bracket…..would you be able to sell just the front side of the mounting kit…obviously would not need the rear portions.

    thank you

    Are the heim joints covered under warranty because mine are popping and clunking like crazy ended up replacing U joints and carrier bearing only to find out it was the heims on the bars. Appears to be a pretty common issue.

    Hey, I have a 2017 Chev. Silverado 2500 HD Duramax. Purchased in Feb.’17, we installed a BDS 6.5″ with Fox upgrade and Recoil traction bars. Wheels and rims are 12×20″ Havok -24 with 35″ x 12.5 toyo rt’s. A couple months ago I began hearing a “rattle” coming from under the truck when traveling slow speed on bumpy roads. We checked everything under the sun and find nothing loose or amiss. Is it possible that traction bars are causing this noise and need to be adjusted. We thought our next move would to be remove traction bars and see if noise disappears. This rig is a pavement princess and has not been off road or abused. I will begin towing a bit with it in the next month. Any thoughts?

Thinking about a set of these Recoil Traction Bars, but, the axle brackets that come in the kit won’t work. Is it possible to get under the axle mount plates which bolts on using the factory U-bolts?
