The first one is a front track bar.

The 2nd two are rear track bars.

Don't you want the CE-9120TJS? (none of the ones you listed.)

The CD-9120TJS is for a 84-01 Cherokee XJ.

Duh, I guess I didn't notice two of those are rear. My main question is what is the difference between the one for $219, the one for $279. I thought Currie was supposed to be good quality. Then there's the Expensive and more Expensive. What to do???

They come in two strengths... very strong to satisfy most offroad needs, super-extra-strong to satisfy the needs of the extra-tough trails. You need to drill the mounting bolt holes bigger for the beefier version. I installed the beefier version on my last TJ and it was nice while it lasted. That Jeep was stolen about a month afterwards.

Perhaps I'll just go with the JKS and avoid confusion!

Confusion? From the track bar question being confusing to you, my bet is that you'd be fine with the less expensive version. You'd know if you need the extra-heavy duty version. Just call Gerald at Savvy who is a Currie dealer that will sell it to you at a discount.

A link to Savvy is below, give Gerald a call who will hook you up.

ahh JKS = Currie pretty much in front one you posted above....hence the TJS bar was suggested...which clears diff covers better.

Thanks. Sorry to hear about your Jeep. It sure seems like Jeeps are a hot ticket for car thieves in the Southwest.

I talked to Gerald and he does give a pretty good deal. I'll likely go with him. There's like a $43 difference between the two. I might just opt for the heavier one. What are yalls feelings? Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it for the nominal difference huh?

Let me ask this: How common is it for the lesser expensive of the Currie track bars to fail according to this board?

It's uncommon for ANY of Currie's products to fail.

A buddy of mine asked why I paid so much for a pair of Currie short arms...and he could not understand this is the unanimous answer.
