Stock height track bar options?

What adjustable track bars will work on a stock height JK Unlimited? I'd prefer the JKS Track bar as I like the bushing design over the JJ style of the other bars, but I'm getting mixed information on whether it will fit a stock height JK. Any other aftermarket options out there for stock height track bar?

Thanks!

If you check I believe the JKS will work on a stock JK, and if you life, then it will adjust for a modest amount of lift. Other than the stock TB is a bit flimsy, why change it?

Check out Metalcloak's Trackbars. They are made to clear the differential cover and accommodate stock exhaust.

Thanks guys. I called on the JKS and they confirmed that their track bar will NOT work with a stock height JK, they said the bar does not thread down short enough. I also contacted MetalCloak and their bar does NOT fit a stock height JK. They said they need minimum 2.5" of lift for their bar to fit. Looks like Synergy is going to be the winner. I called them and they confirmed that their bar DOES fit stock height JK's. I've got one on order with Northridge along with their grade 8 bolt kit.

My track bar is currently toast at 87,000 miles, and I plan on lifting this thing in a year or so, so I figured it would be best to go ahead and upgrade now to an adjustable. Hopefully get rid of the DW too...

Thanks again.

Good choice. When you lift you'll be wise to consider Synergy.
