||Most asked OUO Traction Bar questions & answers.
Q; What is the difference between OUO Long gussets traction bars and OUO Short Gusset Traction Bars?
A: The difference between OUO Long gussets traction bars and OUO Short Gusset Traction Bars are how they look. Both function the same the only difference is one has a larger gusset than the other.
Q; Do I need beside the frame or under the frame brackets for my traction bars?
A: If your leaf Springs are mounted outside your frame and your frame does not get wider under the cab then you need beside the frame brackets. If your trucks Springs are under the frame or your frame gets wider under the cab you need the under frame brackets.
Q; I have a boxed frame how do I mount the bars
A: Boxed frames have 2 options. You will need a Blind Bolt kit that lets you drill a hole thru one layer of the frame and install a fastener that locks into that hole by increasing in diameter. Or the frame bracket welded on to the Frame. Welding is the strongest mounting and to this date we have not had a welded on bracket problem. Blind Bolt kits need to have the bolt torque checked at 500 miles and again at 1000 miles and at every oil change after that.
Q. Will OUO Traction bars “bind up” or limit my suspension travel or articulation in any way?
A. No. they do not.
Patented OUO Traction Bars are the only brand of functional traction bars available.
For a Traction Bar to be Functional and not a just a Fashion Bar we have found if you have ANY Rod End, Flex Joint, Jonny Joint, Ballistic Joint or Tractor Joint the function of the bar will suffer in ride quality, wheel travel, and articulation. They are too rigid. Where these bars come up short is when you try to leave the line. These rigid systems cause the wheels to spin very easily. This is a real problem if you are trying to pull a trailer around a corner in the rain. They also still wheel hop on the street and in the loose dirt / sand. You really CAN go wrong with this type of set up. I consider them not a good addition no matter how cheap they are. They may look the same, as in, why couldn’t lesser pathetic brands be a little more creative and come up with their own look & design to set themselves apart instead of mimicking a part to confuse customers and get them to buy a much lesser design because they look the same. Must be a little embarrassing to have no vision or integrity. Don’t buy a Fashion Bar.
US vs Them
We get compared to other companies every week online.
Makes us wonder why it is OUO they want to be compared to, right?
There is a reason they try to dupe customers by building low quality parts that may look incredibly close to ours only lower cost. Don’t get fooled, they are not the same. These other pathetic companies love to have their products compared to OUO. With their horrible design flaws, backyard powder coating, grade 2 bolts, worthless packaging, every corner cut just to dupe customers out of their money. Every day we get calls from their disappointed customers asking how to fix the hot mess. We feel bad that other people and shops online are deceitful and will say anything to get your hard earned money.
If you buy the copies of our parts your truck will always look like you almost got the good stuff but got the cheap copy instead.

Do you really want to support a competitor company to OUO that has not ever, not once, innovated a new product?
What if everything they have ever made is a just copy because they could not think of another way to build anything?
Is that really what you want on your $60,000 truck?
