Default F150 Traction Bar Install

I know it's not a Powerstroke, but after having Eric tuning my ecoboost and a couple bolt ons, this thing was suffering from serious axle wrap, hard shifts, and just the in general flimsy rear suspension these trucks deal with stock.

Truck is a 2014 F150 Tremor Ecoboost 4WD. Roughly 395/440. Animal of a truck on the street

It has short gusset bars (yes, this is proof our adjustable bars bolt directly onto a regular cab short box) for the naysayers. Has our under axle frame mounts as well as under frame pivot mounts. We also have a trick blind bolt kit so you don't have to drill and tap the frame, makes install a breeze.

Here's a couple pictures of the set up.

There's the truck with the bars on

Thing hooks unbelievably well. Haven't done a boosted launch yet but I can't wait to. It literally rides BETTER than stock, and shifting is better than stock ever dreamed of. This also completely cured the infamous minor vibration on take off and shutter every time you hit a bump or expansion joint on the highway.

For those of you with Raptors, Tremors, Lightnings, or just any F150 experiencing any of the issues I stated about, give us a call at One Up Offroad. We have the solution for your truck, in stock and ready to ship, today.

How do your bars do with the axle movement it has going forward at axle droop?

Any close ups of the "trick" non-drill bolt fasteners?

Have you installed these on a Lightning? The exhaust can be a challenge on those trucks since it exits right about where the forward mount for the arm belongs.

As long as the exhaust isnt under the frame it really shouldnt be an issue. You'd just have to give me a few pictures

It does exactly that. Hugs the inside of the frame rail past the door and then it promptly exits stage right, just behind the cab.

Not my truck, but this picture explains it.
