just got this in the shop today...

RE 3.5" lift with 2" bumpstops, 24" re shocks....

the RE track bar hits the stock diff cover...

all the links and alignment is properly adjusted also...





so... as I said............

PROVE IT

if you think your RC, RE, FT, Rusty's, BDS.... ect.. track bars don't hit at some point in the game...

So far no issues with 3" of lift, 35s, no bumps (hopefully will be in this week), and a Teraflex trac bar and NO CONTACT SO FAR. Whether that'll continue to be true, I'm not sure.

that's what I hope to find out and make sure others know also..

most never hit though because they never make it off the pavement...

O' an BTW.. 42 thousandths.. on the pinion depth starter shims of the d44 and dana gears.

Or could it be because with 35's and no bumpstops the tires hit the fenders and become psuedo-bumptops protecting the diff cover at the expense of....?

Just a thought....

Anyone running the TB for the 2.5" lift? When I ordered the lift the guy on the phone at RC specifically said the TB would hit the diff. I ended up buying a JKS as well as some bump-stop extensions. Hopefully I get these installed soon and can see how the clearance is.

I've seen a pic of the rc 2.5" bar hitting a stock diff cover exactly the same as the one above of the re track bar... I haven't been able to locate it again yet..

rubi rock was at the shop here in oregon a couple days ago (from florida) with a bds adjustable, I saw no signs of contact in the short glance I got of it, tho it's aslo shaped and mounted the same as the RE, RC, FT, Rusty's....ect. track bars, it appeared to be just smaller in diameter.

I just installed the Pro Comp JTB400 adjustable trac bar on my Jeep today. I have the RC 2.5" lift with the 3/4" spacer up front. I do not have any hitting issues and I flexed mine out as much as it could.
