    From what I have read some people say the Pro Comp traction bars suck. Do they only suck because they don't allow as much (if any LOL) articulation as say a Budbuilt that uses a Heim joint instead of bushings?

    I've heard the Budbuilt ones work good but one gen1 tacoma guy said it was a royal pain in the ass and a lot of things were wrong sizes and missing parts and stuff. Also I don't care for the way the budbuilt bolts to the diff and want something that's welded on, which is my I'm leaning towards the Pro Comps. Also dont like the idea of it clamping to a non boxed cross member either and would rather have it bolted to the frame, like the Pro Comps. I don't climb rocks, just muddin, so articulation to me is not that important. I just want the axle wrap gone forever.

    Thoughts, insults, welcome LOL
