solid diff cover, rc 2.5" kit, STOCK trackbar, I have been using the lame rubber shocks stoppers as bumpstops, Looks like I gotta bumpstop for real now!





this was from just ONE day of wheeling. I am gonna do some clearancing on that particular rib, and bumpstop appropriately as well.

This is where my TB is hitting my Ridler diff cover with no susprnsion lift and stock bumpstops. This was happening while driving around town, not wheelin! Guess I'll be switching to a different cover It's hitting the cover and the fill plug.

Can't you just take an angle grinder to the spot on the cover and plug where the trackbar is making contact, or would you have to take off too much material?

So whats the verdict on which adjustable trackbar works the best for 0-3.5" lift? The heim joint on my adjustable trackbar wore out so Im looking for something new possibly.

There is no verdict. Just debate. All depends on what diff cover/trackbar/bumpstops youre running. You'll have to read through the entire thread.

Took a grinder to the diff cover and the backside of the trackbar, but it still hit. Ended up putting the oem cover back on. I bought a "diff guard" for the front oem cover, but I haven't bothered to put it on.

Anybody have any recommendations for an aftermarket diff cover that's stronger than stock, but doesn't increase TB interference?

there's no debate either...... stock track bar unless you use at least 2" bumpstop extensions..

I gotta say I had some concerns about this topic six months ago but realize now after talking to different manufacturers about this topic and since doing my lift that this topic really is taken a bit out of context. If you build your jeep and take into account its limitations for what you are putting on it you wont have problems and this whole topic wont even be apply to you.

Well looks like I'm gonna look for a stock trackbar. Maybee I can have it sleeved 1/4" longer.

I didn't think I had problems before but I removed the springs today and the adjustable trackbar (unknown brand) I have it's at about 3" bumpstop when it hits the stock d30 diffcover. Which leaves a couple inches on the shocks.

The heim has just worn out from hitting the cover. So I'll check craigslist for a stock one while I brainstorm an idea for a new frame tb mount.
