any suggestions on the bracket? I want to go currie or metalcloak with the track bars, but it'll be a while so the bracket is all I really need

I personally got the savvy/currie bar with dual JJs, with HD bracket. I'd post up a link but I don't see the particular one I have on the site. May have to give Gerald a call.

I run the Currie track bars front and rear that I got from savvy. Got the rear with the bracket and I am only on 3" of lift. I don't see how I could have rotated the axle as much as you need to with the under armor without the bracket. I may be wrong but somethins tellin me in the back of my head that you cant run the stock track bar with the bracket unless there is some sort of spacer but dont hold me to that. Call Gerald at Savvy he'll get you set up good. Also the underarmor comes with the exhaust hanger, it is adjustable so you can get it lined up good.

A stock rear TB will work with some angled brackets (e.g. RE), but the Currie bracket is wider to fit the JJ so will not.

I just ordered a JKS bracket for my tummy tuck on my TJ. The trackbar from metalcloak already has the angle in it to account for the pinion angle change if you are looking to go that way. Otherwise the JKS bracket should work.

If you get the angled bracket and adjustable rear trackbar, make sure before putting them on that the trackbar fits in the bracket. I got the Currie ones and had a bear of a time getting the trackbar to fit. It seems like the bracket was about 1/16" smaller than the JJ. With a bit of persuasion, some swearing and brute force I was able to get it in.

Whenever thy happens whether it be track bar mount or lca mount or whatever. I just grab a decent sized crescent wrench and bend each tab a lil bit. Once you slid in and bolt down. It closes right back up

Easier said than done when it is 1/4" thick But yeah more or less that was what I did

309.00 less ROKMEN10 discount code, that's about 278.00. No affiliation with Rokmen, I just bought one for my 2000 TJ.

It's a nice skid but doesn't look like you gain any clearance over the stock. I gained about 3 inches when I put on my UHC skid over stock. Course everything is nicely cramped in there now even with a BL.

Rokmen gains about 2.25 over the stock pan.

Before I installed my Rokmen pan, I installed a 1/2 inch bl, mml and the Novak transfer case cable to avoid possible issues.

When I initially installed my belly pan, I didn't modify my exhaust as they say not everyone needs to. Needless to say, I needed to.

I called Rokmen (they were super friendly) and they suggested to cut 5/8 of an inch off of the hanger.

I did this and it is now perfect.

Alright, but I've got a 1.25" body lift and novak sitting at the house waiting to be installed so I would probably be good on that but I guess I'll just have to put the skid on and see where I'm at is the basic answer. I'd really prefer to not have to mess with it, but will do if necessary
