I don't see the traction bars, can you ciccle or point a arrow at them.
BTW, I sort of like it, looks good.
yes this is where the x comes from. braces the frame and makes it much stiffer for cornering.

the tractin bar runs parallel to my driveshaft in the following picture. kinda hard to see in the light but its there lol









***edit***

heres a better picture. from the rear of the truck looking forward. rear diff is in the top left of the pic
