I have 2.5" lift
I'm thinking about
1- front: JKS gen ii track bar with ZJ tie rod, 1.25" bump stop, and stock dana 44 differential cover
2- rear: JKS track bar with 1.75" bump stop (spring relocation bracket)
Will this work ?
1. should work
either way you need to push the axles to full bump and look for yourself.
the best way to summarize this thread:
Don't buy a big fat aftermarket diff cover. Stick with the stock diff cover and add a bolt-on skid, or get a Barnett diff cover.
Track bar for the front: JKS gen II, Currie TJS or TJJ are the best track bars. Currie is stronger.
Track bar for the rear: Currie's new design bend is supposedly the best option currently. Regardless of track bar, no relocation bracket means the track bar can bind on the stock closed top bracket. With a relocation bracket, the bracket can hit underside of tub and fuel lines.
No matter what you choose, you need to pull the springs out, remove the jounce bumper, and push the axle to full bump to determine your bumpstop extension requirement.
