Rubicon Express RE1600 Adjustable Track Bar

Adjustable front track bar for TJ/XJ/ZJ/MJ.

Correct alignment and handling problems on lifted vehicles with our adjustable chromoly track bar. Easy installation works on vehicles with 2.5" - 5.5" of lift. Allows for more wheel travel than the stock unit and features a replaceable rod end for easier future maintenance.

Rubicon Express RE1600 Adjustable Track Bar

I just recentely installed this track bar on my TJ. The installation was really simple and didn't take too long to install. The only extra thing you will have to do is drill out the hole mounted to the frame to accomodate for the new hardware for the track bar.

Adjusting the track bar is easy and my axle is now centered under my Jeep.

Have a good one,
Justin

Drilling that darn hole took way longer than it should have. If I did it over I would pull the upper mount bracket out of the XJ and drill that way. Dont make more work for yourself like I did. Make sure you have a 1/2" chuck drill. Other than that, I wish it was black. Yeah, paint is cheap but its just another step.

Install of this trackbar was a breeze. The mount DID need to be drilled out, but that was stated in the directions and went easily with the correct drill bit. The trackbar is easily adjustable and does its job. Add $25 to the cost for the drill bit needed at a local Ace Hardware, you will be glad you did.

I just installed this over the weekend, and was the easiest part of the installation. I needed to drill out the previous whole in order to get the bolt at the fish eye to fit through, but that was the only change to the original set up. With this track bar you DO NOT need to offset the track bar on the bottom bracket. VERY easy installation.

It worked really well for a while, then i began to notice a clunk, it wasnt because it wasnt tight, it was that the heim joint wallowed out the frame mount hole. If on a budget go for it, other wise go for a double shear trac bar

Easy install, but barely fits w/ 4.5" lift. Good solid feel to the suspension. Only bought this to replace the stock one that didn't align with the axle bracket after I welded it back on.

Easy to install. This bar is really intended for 4.5 and higher but works well with the 3.5.

Good trackbar, the heim joint is nice for flexibility. Seems very durable and works great in conjunction with the RE1602 angled CV trackbar bracket.

Upper mount comes loose and moves around..clunk, clunk. Waiting for the bolt to snap one of these days. Hope I'm not running down the interstate at that time.

Easy to install. Easy to set. Good price. Maybe the best one on the market.
