Nice work. Those look painful to install compared to the RAS. The periodic re-torquing, alone, would drive me batty. I hope they fix your issue, though!

Initial impression: The vibration was reduced quite a bit, but not eliminated. The vibration also stops quicker than it did previously. I was really paying attention to it but also was hoping it would work (so there could be a mental side to it too). I will wait for judgement once everything has a chance to settle and break in. I will be driving about 1200-1500 miles next week, which should hopefully give me a better idea of how well they work. There should also be a little light off roading too. If the vibration stays minimal as it is right now I will be happy with these bars at a fraction of the cost of ladder bars.David

So I have about 1500 miles on the trac bars. The vibration has definately been reduced, but not eliminated as was the initial impression. I am happy with this purchase for the cost/value of the product and what I was wanting. Seemed to have no negative effect on off road capabilities when I was in Northern CA at Christmas.

As a follow up. I just added another 3/4" of spacers to the carrier bearing (puts total spacing at about 2 1/4"). This seems to have actually fixed my vibration problem. The driveline is now nice and straight but I always hesitated adding to much spacing as I didn't want the angle at the transfer case to be too large. Either way the vibration is gone and the truck seems to get going a little easier too.. I actually removed the trac bars after the spacers worked to soften the back up again (it already is a 3/4 ton with an add a leaf and airbags, so it had gotten very stiff).
