No clearance issues what so ever. My problem isn't with the tack bar, my apologies if I stated that (My trac bar went to the recycler), it's the DRAG LINK
; which is too long to get the steering wheel straight. I'm not sure why this is; Rusty's website doesn't state if it's for a certain amount of lift or not. I adjusted it this weekend so that the pitman arm is as close to it's neutral position as possible so that I can turn sharply both left and right.
It is possible to center the steering wheel with the Rusty's Drag Link. BUT you loose some of your left turning radius. This wasn't acceptable to me as some of our trails have really tight switch backs and making a 3point turn on a steep switch back is not fun.
I've read that for $20 Rusty's will shorten the Drag Link, but I have no idea if this problem is a systemic problem for YJs, or if my Configuration is different. I think I might call Rusty's and explain to them my problem. There just not enough Data out there for the YJ and this kit to see if Rusty's should be making a shorter one just for us or what. My guess is that with 4" of suspension lift that you might not have any issues since that would increase the distance from the pitman arm to the tie rod.
