Rough Country 2005-2016 F-250 4WD, Traction Bar Kit (0-3″ Lift) – RCS 51005


Product Highlights:

Get a grip with Rough Country’s Traction Bar Kit for 05-16 Ford F-250 models. These heavy-duty Traction Bars help prevent wheel hop and axle wrap by aligning and stabilizing the rear axle geometry, allowing for full travel and articulation without binding. Once installed, these bars prevent the type of movement and pinion angles that cause a loss of traction. Perfect for re-claiming traction while towing or during quick acceleration.

Not just any bar can get the job done, and Rough Country’s Ladder Bar design combines relentless strength with aggressive good looks. Rough Country’s F-250 Traction Bar features Clevite Rubber Bushings and a threaded adjustable end for an easier install and true adjustability. Works on any 05-16 Ford F-250 with 0-3 inches of lift. Best of all these Traction bars feature Rough Country’s Lifetime Replacement Warranty!
