Default axle wrap!!

So I am pretty sure I have axle wrap now. When I give it gas to take off it makes this horrible clunck, and you can see the axle twist. is there anyway to fix this besides traction bars, or removing the 2" blocks?? I went threw and re tightnend all the nuts on the bolts but still does it! Any help would be appreciated.

Sulastic makes some hangers that control axle wrap. New Leafs Would also help. But honestly a good set of traction bars are what ya need.

It's not that complicated to get trac bars, they are pretty cheap. It's a simple mod, a good kit just bolts on, no welding req'd. Check out caltracs or Lakewood

I had mine custom built. Rize ind makes a good set for your body style. They are for the 2500 as well. I know they bolt up but since your axle tubes may be smalled outer diamter the rear brackets to bolt them to the axle will need reworking. I would contact SDHQ (they are an awesome offroad shop local to you to get a quote on having some made.
