I like it I gained articulation over the stock trackbar With a relocation bracket. The front end feels tighter and more crisp. I did not go with a double shear at the time cause most say 4"+ for the double shear but once I go longarm I will be upgrading to a double shear trackbar

I have a decent bit of fun with it. She stays parked in the garage until it goes wheeling or driven. In foul weather. I can't wait until this spring. I plan on going to Moab around Easter Jeep Safari.
