Default Traction Bars For Lifted Trucks

Looking to see if anyone has any recommendations for traction bars?
Most manufactures say their kits will not work with lifts or power steps such as AMP Research (which I have).

I know majority of trucks that run these are either stock suspension or dropped.

Rough Country has a set of traction bars for 15-19 F150 w/5 inches or more of lift. They don't mention anything about power steps worth checking into..

By the way for anyone interested, checkout the video in my signature from 0:14 - 0:16 and see how bad that wheel hop is

It seems like the VA Specialties bars would work, looking at their pictures on facebook….not sure about with the power steps though. If the power steps fold in over the front spring perch, then maybe not.

I talked to them earlier today. They said they have not tested it on a lifted truck yet. I sent them some pics and measurements. We will see what they say.

They seem to be less expensive than some of the other traction bars out there, if it makes any difference
