One washer was all it took, no more rubbing.

Thanks for all the help.

Ok, so I read through the 80 Page adjustable track bar thread and have some questions and a tentative plan.

Like I mentioned before, I have a 3inch Zone lift with a front Dana 30 with the stock diff cover, no armor or anything. The stock track bar is moved over in a newly drilled hole.

My plan is to run a CE-9120TJJ in the original hole (with the second, newer hole welded over).

Will I still have to run 2 inches of bump stop with the above proposed setup?

Yes is the short answer. If you have already moved the mounting point and recentered the axle you don't really need an adjustable unless you are binding the stock track bar.

That is a good plan

Here's a write-up on reinforcing the bracket: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/br...racket-905624/

Yes, using the stock diff cover or a Barnett/T&J cover. Other covers will be worse.

Follow up, If I keep the stock track bar on the new location with a reinforced hole, I still run the 2 inch bump stop extensions, right?

You need to follow the link in unlimited04's sig on how to properly set your bump stop extensions. There is no way of knowing what the minimum size you can use will be without test fitting per the writeup in the link.
