Broncobeater's long bars seem to have more clearance than most others. I'm very happy with my bars a they clear my 3" exhaust no problem. If you are too low though your best bet would be some metco's.

Metcos are great, well made and beefy. I dont do much racing but i needed something to keep my axle underneath me when my punisher comp vb would shift, and having a 3/4.5 drop my choices were limited. Ive read that caltracs are noisy and you have to constantly grease them.


Metcos are super super easy to install, it will take you longer to jack up the truck than it will to install them.

I've just got el cheapo Lakewoods slapper bars on mine. But I am not running anything more than a two-pound upper and "CAI". I painted them white to match my truck, and they sure do look good, IMHO. Got the gap set at .75 for the present. May drop that down to .50, as they are not affecting the ride at the current setting. Still get good burnouts, but no more wheel hop. No ground clearance problems.

Exactly what I was after.
