those are not track bars, ghetto traction bars is more like it....

look into doing a real traction bar set up, youll have much better results with reducing axle wrap, although those do help, you can plainly see by the design they do not eliminate it

yeah sure, those clamp around your leaf springs, the rubber bumper will hit your spring to limit wrap, only limit.

a REAL traction/ladder bar, has a mount welded to the axle, and uses 2 control arms that are welded into a Y, and mounted to the body using a shackle, the shackle allows the suspension to move freely, 100% freely, but the Y of the arm doesnt allow it to rotate AT ALL.

ZERO wrap

guess thats a compliment? lol. Def. do the stealth look....in my opinion that looks best on a cherokee or comanche. So many jeep owners are trying to hard to make it look "ghetto fabulous" and just kill the jeep look.

This is what I used to have:




Then I sold it and bought something that was not a brick. Dont get me wrong, I loved that Jeep. But I got a better Mopar.

Hey Brian, long time no talk. I'm sorry to hear that you sold your XJ, but it does look like you're having fun with your SRT-4. You'll be back to the dark side some day

Well, I havent completely left the dark side. I still have my 96 XJ. Although it is built for an entirely different purpose than the green XJ.
And I still get to see the green one from time to time. I sold it to a good friend, who I always helping do something to it. We usually role the SRT and Green XJ together.
