Thought about swapping out my jks tb for a MC one but it might be throwing $ away if its still working for me after the Barnett cover.
X2 but in the picture above he has a stock cover which is the same as a Barnett for clearance (and yes I know you know that) It would be interesting to see full bump pics though.

I can't tell from your picture, do you have any bump stop extension in the front?

I had the 126 with ZJ v8 steering, but moved it to my XJ and bought a Metalcloak for my TJ. The JKS feels like a piece of tin compared to the MC track bar. I would not bother with the JKS and go right to the better clearance and much stouter MC piece. The shop should install whatever you bring them. I'm sure they get paid by the hour and are making money either way.

that's why I'm still running the V8 ZJ stuff & not Currie steering...won't fit...needs ~2" bumpstop extensions...for my setup, I'd lose almost 1" uptravel...

It better since it is based on a stock cover with reinforcing at the bottom

I heard PSC new model is supposed to be better now than it used to for clearance

I have the JKS HD on my Tj. The only two complaints I have are 1. they sent me the wrong size bolt for the axle side, and 2. after about a year the "adjustable" end became so seized up I have to use pipe wrenches to adjust it. But Ive never had any other problems with it.

I just put the JKS track bar up front along with a 4" lift. 2" hockey puck bump stops, factory steering. It looks fine clearance wise but time will tell once I get it out in the rough stuff. Unlimited04 has me a bit concerned. The frame tie in is pretty massive. Looks like a JJ.
