Lakewood Traction Bar

I was wondering if anyone has bout the Lakewood traction bar and if they have any insight on it as to if it helped out or not. I guess if I cant find someone I post something on it in a few days as I am going to buy it tomorrow.

Karl from Massive was selling his a while back. He said it worked great. You might want to PM him (K Dog).

TopSpeed and Ja-Red on FJ use them on their cars...400-500whp and 400-500wtq and they all swear by them.

I have a set waiting to go on as soon as my turbo downpipe is completed.

From what I hear from everyone, they make a world of a difference traction-wise.

Beware of the down pipe, maybe install them first and then do the down pipe as the center bar is on the way and most people delete it, maybe it can be done around it. Depending on the manifold, of course.

Here is the instructions for assembly, it will give you a better idea.

The one big drawback is they don't fit with the SVT header.

Think is just the center bar from the rad mount to the back.
Here is mine but maybe will have to delete it.
