Not true, there are plenty of people who have functional scoops and it doesn't cost them more than about $100...

That damn nut on jks trackbar is a PITA to keep tight. I have to tighten mine about every week. That tack welding idea is pretty good never thought about that.

Mine used to come loose, but they haven't in a long time. I imagine it is partially because the threads have become somewhat gunked up over the years.

Hmm I've never had a problem with mine, but I tighten it with a really big wrench.

??? mine only came with one? I have emailed JKS and asked for another jambnut to tighten up against the other, but they haven't responded to me. I also have asked for new bushings, as I think the ones they supply are junk...again, no response. The bar itself is pure beef, don't get me wrong, its a good product, just with minor flaws.

+1 on tack welding it, that's a brilliant!

Already have homie, thanks! They are on the list along with moog tre's, a-arm spacer, front discos, rear links...

Let me ask you guys something while on the subject...I bought a new ball joint for the a-arm, and going to get the spacer, so I am out about $150 +/- should I just fork up some more $ and get the IRO replacement A-Arm? are they the only ones that make it?

They are the only one who I have found make them. I agree buy the new rear adj a arm for a few more $$ is well worth it!!!
