Yeah its a tad long. I collapsed it as far as it can go and I'll tell you what...the front axle is more centered with this one than the factory TB w/ lift. Also I netted a total of 2 3/4" of suspension lift from the OME HD springs so that put it a bit closer in my favor. After new metal cloak TB install, I think its the passenger sticks out apx. 1/4". That to me is negligible.

1/4" out is livable. I netted the same as you (also HD springs), but after I added my winch and winch plate, it dropped me back down to 2.5". I have no clearance issues with my JKS front TB, so you should have miles of room!

Thanks! I think your right too. I did a good bit of rooting around on here before I pulled the trigger on the TB. I also have a winch and bumper on mine as well... But my winch is a puny 5,000 pounder (which makes me use a snatch block to be safe every darn time) and I hacked the bumper down a bit so its now flush with the frame rails...so probably less weight up front. I'll try to get some pics up of the TB and maybe more...

The jks make fine stock replacements. They are way ahead of tera's design with fine threads and sealed shafts. Tera also used small diameter hard polly bushing that had no flexibility. That is what caused mount failure. Jks use the same exact clevite bushing as stock arms. They do flex very well in reality.
I would use them without hesitation for mostly hwy useage up to 4" lifts with less than 10" travel shocks. I believe Youll never experience any failure or abnormal bushing wear provided the sway bar links stay connected.


Track bars, track bars......

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

my new generation rough country adjustable track rod with the thicker tubing self-destructed before it had a chance to bang on the differential. the bracket kept working loose and causing death wobble, then after I got that resolved the tube wallowed out at the threads. back to the stock rod for me

So is there a definitive answer for a 3.25 lift and trac bars?

Metalcloak, Currie TJS/TJJ or JKS #126. Which one depends on how much work you're willing to do, how much you want to drill out, how you tolerate heim vs JJ's, and how much bumpstop extension and tie-rod you're using.

Avoid the Rubicon Express lowers and buy a good set instead.
