OOps, I guess I need to figure something new out for my TB.
nice... that's progress going on there!
I had to give up on making the jks clear the ARB cover, the stock frame mount needs to be cuttoff...
the JJ end of the JKS is to big to move 1 1/2" forward, it'll hit the steering linkage and a different part of the cover. less than 1 1/2 puts the bolt up against the stock bracket, which leaves no room for a hole without welding and more modification.. it works for track bars with TRE's and heims, they are smaller and clear the draglink. the JJ is just to big,
I also grabbed a JJ off the shelf, the same as clayton uses.... that won't work with the ARB cover either,
what will work is a JKS WJ grand cherokee track bar using clayton's bracket, I have a JKS wj bar that I used as a mock up, it gets stuck between the tie rod and the cover at the point it hits the cover... problem there is, the clayton bracket is to wide to bolt the jks wj track bar in, it needs spacer/s to make it work. the other problem is the jks polly bushings are JUNK... that's why I took it off of mine, I've heard from WJ guru's that kevin's off road has better bushings that last longer.
I believe I can still make the JKS work but it needs the stock bracket hacked off to do it, tho it'll still smack the ARB on the ledge without bumpstops.
what I was hoping to accomplish, was to make the bracket a bolt on and solve the JKS problem.. ain't gonna happen without cutting stock bracketry, It does however fix rubbage problems for other adjustable track bars including the stock track bar..
any how I invested close to 8 hours, between last night and untill after lunch today, into fooling around with making several mock up brackets then modifying those further.
so.... I tried at least. but now I know what it'll take.. I didn't have permission to hack the stock bracket off of the rig I was working on, otherwise I woulda done it and rotated the JJ on the JKS track bar, still woulda needed some spacers to use the JJ that's on the JKS bar and still bumpstoped to keep it from hitting the ARB ledge, it would at least have closer to 5" of uptravel tho before contact. instead of 2 1/2"
