Description

Axle wrap is a common problem in old Broncos. We have seen so-called traction bars in varying configurations. Many which don't work or cause serious ground clearance and travel reduction issues. The WH Wrap Trap is the simple answer that can help this problem.

First allow us to explain what axle wrap is. When torque is applied to the rearend by the driveshaft, that torque is applied to the pinion yoke, which is attached to the pinion gear. As the pinion gear turns it tries to "climb" up the ring gear. All this torque rotates the entire rearend housing upward if you are going forward and down if you are in reverse. That in a nut shell is axle wrap.

In the worst scenarios we have experienced the rear axle housing wraps until the rear driveshaft lower yoke breaks from the bind that is placed on it. The design of the Wrap Trap virtually eliminates axle wrap in forward and reverse under slow rock crawling situations. The Wrap Trap does not affect articulation because of its centered mounting position. We feel this is a must for rock crawlers who want to keep from tearing up rear drive shafts.

Axle wrap can further be reduced with some simple maintenance like keeping the U-bolts tight. For the best axle control package, install our Extreme duty U-bolt kit with the Wrap Trap. If you are having a problem with axle wrap you will notice a big difference from the moment you install the Wrap Trap.

I have not installed it yet. But, the construction quality is awesome. It is very heavy duty. The pattern for the rear end mount is nearly perfect, and the size of the heim is great. I bet once it is in it will make a huge difference. It may be 5 stars after I install it.

Wrap Trap: hell yeah!!!

very impressive piece of hardware, the crossmember is a very solid piece. If there were a negative: felt like the install instructions said to refer to a picture online and replicate what you saw. I debated over where to install crossmember and length to set the link at to have proper adjustment in the future.

Design works great keeping bar out of interference when climbing rocks. Easy to install. Solved axle wrap issue. Allows me to put the pedal into the 351W knowing power will go to the wheels.

I ran this product for many years then switched to a full width rear and FAILED to weld on a new set of brackets to the rear end. 1. Broke a 9" rear yoke in Arkansas 2. Broke rear driveline on Arizona 3. Broke rear driveline on the Rubicon. I've had enough it's going back on before the next run. All the damage is the result of rear axle wrap. My springs are 10+ years old well worn with lots of trail and street miles. They flex great but they wrap great too. My opinion is if you rock crawl you need a wrap trap. Jim Creel
