Pros: Adjustable, built well, beefy
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have a lot of RE products on my xj because of the quality and this is another nice product. It's much more robust than the original track bar and it is adjustable for the size of lift I have. The installation is straightforward and is a nice addition to my rig.

Price: $124.00
Pros: Works good with 3.5" Superflex lift. Alignment on Jeep good. RE backs up the product.
Cons: After eight years, the heim joint wore out and threads galled, damaging the nut threads. However RE took care of me
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This setup installed by original owner in 2003. I bought it 7/2011. The heim joint was worn out. Ordered a new one for $25. I tried to remove the remove the old one and it was really stuck. After great effort using an oxygen and Mapp gas torch setup on the track bar nut and ice on the heim joint, it forcibly came out using a large pipe wrench. It turns out the threads had galled. Damaged the welded on nut. I called Rubicon Express explaining I am not happy this item is not serviceable. They offer to replace the actual bar only under warranty, or for about cost send me a completely new setup. For $60, it was worth it due to getting a new axle end bushing and replacement small hardware along with a new track bar.

Lesson learned: Use anti-seize paste on all threads with this setup.

Price: $165.00
Pros: Tough, allows more flex, easy to adjust, and will accommodate more lift.
Cons: Still uses OEM mount and not a stronger "HD" mount on driver side.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This trackbar has been very good to me. I installed it, adjusted it, and haven't touched it in over 2 years. Seems to hold up just fine with my 3" lift.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Allows for a lot of flex, while still being able to use stock mounting points, and its adjustable.
Cons: Came loose after a while, had to buy a $20 drill bit
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Works great for me, I actually got this track bar in a $100 lift kit I bought locally.

It was definitely a ***** getting the old bar out the lower bolt was spinning the sleeve inside of the old bearing. I had to sneak my sawzall in there and cut it.

Had to make a run to ace to get a 5/8 drill bit (I believe, can't remember), which I found was still tight, so I reamed it out a bit.

The upper bolt came loose after about 50 miles and I had to re tighten it, could have been my mistake. I haven't thought about it lately, but it would have been nice to have a lock washer handy instead of the nylon lock nut.

you'll also need some sizable crescent wrenches to adjust the thing.

works great though other than those small problems. helps me flex out like a mofo.

Comments: 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.
