Shouldn't you have two trac bars spaced equally on the rear axle to prevent wrapping? Also those trucks come from the factory with lift blocks in the rear?

you can run one, you just put more stress on the housig as the tube on the other side tries to twist the whole thing. Probably not a big deal in a tow rig.

some did have factory lift blocks in the rear.

The headache rack looks really good! And yeah, I'm really excited to see how the DCD comes out. And the fenders.

Your girl is a hottie, and smiles like she means it. Well done!

I was going to say the same thing.

Looks good.

Now, back to the original purpose of the thread. Get that thing on the trailer!

If it was closer to the end of the axle it would be different. Since it is alot closer to the pig I think the opposing forces are less. Yes it came with lift blocks.

That would only be true if the housing were flexible. As it is rigid, you can mount it anywhere.

Yeah whatever, I am bad at putting what I am thinking into words.

When the axle rolls forward the opposing force (the traction bar) is closer to the middle of the axle, equalizing the pressure between each side. If it were all the way to one side of the axle, when it rolled forward one side one receive more opposing force from the traction bar than the other. Thus causing the axle to want to dog leg. I dont know how this actually applies being the spider gears are welded. If I had dual traction bars, mounting them at each end of the axle to equalize the torsion of the axle right? That cannot be done with one. Right?

Unless your leaf springs are super soft, it doesn't matter where it is.

Your headache rack actually turned out nice. I would have thought you would build it out of wood or diamond plate. Are you gonna paint it or let it rust to match the rest of your truck?
