Traction Bars and Sled Pulling?

Hey all, I'm getting my truck ready to hook to the sled at our local fair next month and was just wondering what traction bars I should get? Right now I'm running air lift bags in the rear for about 3 inches of lift and a set of 325/65/r18 nitto terra grappler tires. Which traction bars would work good for my setup and where is the best place to buy them? Thanks for all the help!!

How do they mount to the axle tubes and do they eliminate wheel hop/axle wrap? Thanks for the help!!!

There are tabs that are welded to the axle and boy do they stop the wrap. Go to Farmboy Fabrications 2007 and check out some of the videos and pictures he has. One guy had so much wrap he bent over one of the ends to his U-joint.
