Trackbar for Rubicon

OK I've read just about every post and review about track bar brackets but i'm no closer to buying one now then before. I'm running an OME 2.5" lift with front 1.5" spacer and a 1.25" body lift. What track bar will work with my minimal amount of lift and not hit my front Dana 44? I was looking at the Currie HD recommended by Jerry but will that work with the Dana 44?

Use the link in my signature to click open Savvy's website. Call Gerald. He'll know (and if by off chance he doesn't, Blaine will). Or PM him the question. His username's Savvy here on the forum.

Either way, you've made a wise decision going with a Currie track bar vs. any other brand.

the currie will need 2" bumpstop extension to clear, the clayton,..... even more to clear the tie rod.

I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable


HighLine Hood Jeepers
TJ Adjustable Track bars
DIY highline fenders.... 34-37's under 0"-2.5" lifts
shock length, bumpstop extension, tire size chart click here
DIY shock shifters, more uptravel/better ride

This is what I mean, it's so confusing as to what will work and what won't or what else you have to install to make them work.

Lets put it this way.... if you have 33" tires without a BL, or 15.5" collapsed length shocks, or both, you need 2" bumpstop extensions anyhow, which means it and a few other aftermarket track bars will work using a stock diff cover.
less collapsed shock length than 15.5" require less bumpstop extension, so if you use more extension than you need you loose articulation and an adjustable track bar will hit your diff cover.

OK well I have 33's with 2.5 OME susp. lift, 1.25" body lift, and 1" MML. The shocks were the stock OME's that came with the springs. Is this setup Ok for these trackbars? I'm new to this so please bear with me.

N66 or N66L up front?

N67 or N67L out back?

I have N66L's and N67L's. What do you think of the Bomb Proof Track Bar and Bracket from Rock Krawler? It looks pretty HD. I'm going to order my Track Bar on Monday and with all the negative posts about them hitting the Diff.
(especially with the Dana 44) and overall poor reviews of different brands, it makes it extremely hard to choose one for my setup. Oh by the way in my previous post I forgot to mention I also have a 1.5" coil spacers on the front springs. Thanks

the n66L's up front must have at least 2" bumpstop extension to keep the shock from bottoming out. the n67L I can't exactly tell you due to the changes pinion angle shock relocators and BPE's can create, I can say tho the rears will need around 3+" of extension.
