Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Performance Traction Bars
Back to the garage to install and review the Tuff Country performance traction bars for the Dodge 2500 & 3500 Ram trucks and wow do these things work. We wanted some way to show the advantages of having these bars on the truck, so we hooked up a trailer and off we went. As shown in the side by side video the results are drastic. These Dodge Ram 2500/3500 performance traction bars virtually eliminate all spring wrap. These bars are fully adjustable so they can be used on any truck from stock to 6″ lifted models. They are a stout quality bar built to withstand the extreme torque of the diesel motors. Easily installed with only a few holes to drill makes installing these bars a quick and painless Saturday Project.
When deciding on a lift kit for your truck or SUV, you will need to consider what it is that you want as an end result for the truck. Maybe you are just looking to clear a larger tire.

We decided to install the R4 Tech Suspension on the popular Dodge Ram 2500 platform. This truck is a great choice for towing with the assistance of the Cummings motor, and also the rear leaf sprung suspension. The truck can handle heavy loads and does not lack on power to pull. The leaf sprung rear suspension makes this truck a perfect candidate for the R4 Tech kit. This truck had a four leaf with a factory overload spring on it. The truck we picked for this install also had the optional Firestone double convoluted air bags installed on it for extra load support. While the truck had no problem hauling the loads that it was asked to preform, it left very little to be desired of the ride quality. The owner of the truck opted to install the R4 Tech Suspension system. For those of you who don’t know what this system is I will break it down for you. The kit replaces the factory leaf spring with a one and a half leaf spring for a softer spring rate, in combination with an air bag to pick up the weight rating. The kit also replaces the factory shocks with air assisted shocks. Both the air bags and the shocks automatically adjust to compensate for the load changes and road conditions that are different at any given point of the haul. While installing this kit, one of the things we noticed was the quality of the kit. This is a very well put together and thought out kit. It is a complete bolt on kit with no welding or cutting required to install this kit. Continue Reading Article

Convenience & Ease of Use:
It’s made of aircraft grade aluminum, the design is simple and I was able to easily adjust the height to keep my trailer parallel to the ground. So it works with different trailers & receiver hitches and can adapt to the weight of the load you’re carrying.
