These are "Land-Yot's" designed traction bars. they were the Gen IV weld-on version. He no longer makes them. If you search the Excursion portion of this site, you will see a Thread that I did on these bars, and what they look like disassembled so you could see how to make your own.

Hope this helps, and yes, they are on both sides of the truck.

Latest work to the 00 Ex...

My Rear was leaking, and was very black, so it was good to get this done before winter. Front didn't look too bad, but the cover was very rusted and scaled up, so the new cover really dressed things up!

Nice to have full coverage!

I think I need to to adjust this one, as it may be hanging a bit off kilter...

Thanks for having my back Stewart!

Tylus, let me know if you need any more info. With them on the supercharged Ex, it eliminated the Axle wrap I was having when you combine big horsepower with big rubber and with 4.30 gears and 5" blocks. And when driving over washboard gravel roads and potholes, it actually steers straight, and the loosy goosy feeling is all but eliminated.
How this helps!

Garry

those rods dont look very hard to make with some patience. i am curious as to why there are the rubber bushings to isolate the two halves when most are one solid piece. i would assume this would allow more acle wrap flex and twisting??

it's almost an identical copy of the 84-96 F series front axle radius arms rear bushings. matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if that is what was used

that system works great to allow articulation, but keep the axle planted fore/aft.

Somewhere on this thread I posted a way I would make them that would be much better than the Landyot ones. I even included part numbers and describion of parts I would use.
