I'm looking for a track bar for my xj with 3.5" lift. I found this Rough Country track bar on Ebay for 1.5-4.5" lift, but I thought RC only made the 4-6.5" track bar. Is this ebay one actually a legit Rough Country track bar? Is it worth the $130? I'm not looking to spend any more than $150. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Adjust...item20c2bb6b05
92 XJ 3.5" lift, trimmed fenders, cut & folded lower quarters, 34x10.50 Swampers, JCR Stage 1 front bumper, Stage 2 rear bumper, lots of Herculiner

Another vote for the IRO double shear. After putting on my 3" lift and 31's and promptly proceeding to abuse the living hell out of the jeep, the track bar bushing AND ball joint wore out in no time, axle offset itself to one side and steering got sloppy and terrible. The IRO is seriously beefy, and no pressed in ball joints you can't remove to replace. My only complaint was that by taking their recommended length settings that come in the instructions and extrapolating to 3" of lift, it wasn't even close. Maybe I measured wrong. I adjusted a few times till it came out right, and the whole process took just a couple hours with a helper. Good quality product.
If cost is that important the IRO basic adjustable will work fine for you. The double shear is worth the extra cost though if you can swing it. Either way IRO is king in the trac-bar department, their bars are seriously heavy duty.

Get the double sheer bar and bracket from IRO or nothing at all. Any of the ones with a TRE at the top is just a waste of your time installing it and my time responding to your next post about how it doesn't work properly.
I can chime in on that one... the tie-rod will not hold up to the stresses of centering the front axle to the body. They arent made for that. Will it work... for a while. There are a lot of stories here, NAXJA and Pirate about the issue.
BUt why get something with a weak point, that you will have to buy a replacement for later?
