I put mine on yesterday and haven't bent it yet. (Although the rig still hasn't moved out of the garage ) I have bent 3 of the JKS versions so will see if this one holds up.

Any clues how this differs from the old style (or better yet any pictures?)? The currie website just has the stock picture that is the same as the old model.

Was no use me taking pictures of the JKS as comparison, since of the 2 I have here, one has been welded on the bend where it broke, and is not the correct shape, and the other is still way bent bent out of shape.

The differences have been described somewhere in this thread I believe, but there is a lot more clearance due to the different shape and the way the frame end is attached. These pictures are about the best I can do just now.

I like the look of that trackbar. Looks like the moved the mounting point as far forward as they could.

What is everyone's take on Rough Country's adjustable track bars? I have their 2.5" lift, but to be honest it seems more like a 3-3.5" lift.

I would like to add Riddlers for my diff covers on down the road and was wondering if RC's front adjustable track bar would be alright to use with them (or the stock covers for the moment). Seems like I read in another thread where they redesigned the front adjustable for this very reason. I'm also running their rear track relocate bracket for the rear. Would that be alright to stay with, or should I upgrade to a rear adjustable as well?

I don't seem to be having any issues, but I haven't had this lift on a whole week yet. Just thought I would go ahead and ask in case a few wheeling trips tell me otherwise.

So, Is there a silver bullet for an adj front track bar for a small lift, or is it all trial and error for a d44?

the JKS will work depending on your bumpstops...

I haven't seen the currie on a small lift yet, there's a good bet it'll work even on stock suspension if it's trimed to shorten it.

That is the track bar for their 4" lifts. The new one designed for the 2.5" lifts does not hit.

So if I went to Riddler covers for my diffs (D30/D44), would I still be alright? If so, I might pull the plug on a set of adj trackbars from RC.
