Hey all, Anyone running a rear traction (antiwrap bar) for the rear diff? I have no blocks shims, nothing but want to add something to help with the axle wrap, is there a universal kit a guy can order and weld up? thanks ( its an xj)

I helped a friend burn some bolts and himey joints together to make one,
single joint in front mounted to the t-case brace..too a Y bar with a joint on top(side) of the diff to the bottom/otherside of the diff..I really was not sure how much stress it could take but a couple years later it was still on and workin

the side effect I think that I saw was he never spit a drive shaft again...

Ruffstuff makes awesome stuff. I would just grab their kit, some tube, and go at it.

I'm debating on making my own, not sure yet.
