Our Traction Bars are designed to reduce rear leaf spring axle wrap caused by lift blocks and oversized tires. Typically the travel cycle of the Super Duty rear axle is an arch. Fabtech's exclusive traction bar shackle system allows the bars to float with the arched travel of the rear axle. This provides a non-binding, smooth highway ride, while still providing positive resistance to torque loads, reducing axle wrap and increasing tire traction. Installation of traction bars may not eliminate carrier bearing vibration on some vehicles. To use with Fabtech rear leaf springs or AMP steps order Bracket Kit (FABFTS92025). Must have minimum 3 inch blocks for proper clearance.
Was told that they fit my truck went to install them they didn’t fit because I had a full leaf pack instead of a block lift. So I had to cut my overload bar on my leaf pack hopefully I never need it probably won’t but would have been nice to know.
Will it work on my 08 extended cab long bed diesel?

Yes, this will fit your vehicle application.
Yes thank you for your response on the floating traction bars.
Your specifications show color blue, when I called fab tech
They said there all black. I'd prefer blue. Is that correct.
Or do you still have them in blue, please advise me.
Thank you Michael.

Floating Rear Traction Bar System, fabfts62003bk
The traction bars are only going to come in the color black. They no longer use the color blue.

Hello I have a 2004 ford 6.0 diesel 4×4 with fab tech lift 8"
I am thinking of installing rear traction bars to avoid axle wrap and improve the trucks performance. Fab tech has the traction bars but was kind of confused between the floating bars and the standard.
Also I was hoping they still come in the color blue since all of under carriage is blue. Any advise would be appreciated.
Thank you and best warm regards.

Thanks for the question Michael, The only application for your truck is the one you listed. Unfortunately FabTech is no longer making blue parts your only choice is black. These traction bars will be the cure to your axle wrap.
