Default Traction Bars

Anyone build there own I see OUO and PMF and the most recommended around here but both of those sets seem pretty steep when it comes to price so im just looking for some pics or ideas on putting a set together.

I made my own for like 300 bucks in materials. Used ballistic fab bushings on one end and solid heims on the other. I have pictures on my phone. But its not a complex thing to make. The annoying thing was making the brackets, I made bolt on brackets for the chassis and weld on ones for the rear to save some money, but you can get brackets that will work just fine for not too much more and just weld them on.

If you can weld pretty good then you can make them your self and paint or get them powder coated. I haven't made mine yet but it is on the list of things to do.

Im thinking of doing bushings on both ends any negatives to this other then not being ajustable? I understand the concept I built a set for my last truck. just trying to get some ideas on where on the frame yall are mounting I plan on welding both sets of brackets.

heims are stronger. Only reason you use a bushing at the axle end is to stop the road noise/vibration from transferring directly to the truck chassis and into the cab.

There is a guy on one of the Houston facebook groups named Tomas Frendrick that builds them for a decent price. Houston Diesel Scene I believe it is.
He advertises a powder coated set starting at $465 with brackets and hardware. I plan on trying a set from him due to no time to fab my own right now.
