Same here. I ran a JKS t-bar years ago on my old TJ for 4 years, beating the hell out of it and bathing it in mud (my username describes me) on a weekend basis during the summer. It never flinched.

NOW it appears Currie's t-bar is the better choice, very similar to JKS, but with an offset joint to fix the diff-cover issue (that I never had with the JKS), bigger bolts, and some stuff. Either one you choose, you get a good reliable and durable t-bar.

Imped Two different views of the same track bar. That's the bar you want.

DevilDogDoc Correction, they are only $381 a pair from Ironman Offroad.
The 7075 aluminum ones are $495. Those at least have JJ at both ends.

DevilDogDoc If that's the case there is a guy on eBay selling arms with a JJ on one end and a bushing on the other. It's 499 a pair. Those must be the best then right cause it's a couple hundred more than the Currie.

No. The Currie is the best because it runs a Currie JJ (just like the JKS) in an offset fashion for better clearance and up travel (unlike JKS) and uses thicker tubing than JKS. It also uses a larger 5/8 thru-bolt at the frame mount while the JKS uses a 9/16" bolt that requires a tapered spacer. And lastly, the 9120TJJ uses a 1/2" bolt at the axle, unlike the stock bolt that JKS uses. That's why it's the best bolt-on track bar. I've installed several of both and have even removed a JKS bar to be replaced with a Currie bar.

DevilDogDoc From the RE that you are having issues with to the Currie is about $50 assuming you get the bracket they require you to run.
04-10-2012 06:08 PM
DevilDogDoc Sorry I linked the wrong one. I didnt see the bushing on the end.
04-10-2012 06:06 PM
DevilDogDoc Because those are the joints that the others try to copy. Read up a little.

thats a rebranded JKS. The Currie TJS or TJJ model track bar is the better choice.

Track Bar with Best Joints?

My rubicon express adjustable track bar is 4 years old and the joints are about at the limit of their life. After 3 adjustments and constant re-tightening there is still play that develops in the track bar every couple of days, and it starts a DW when i hit a good sized bump just right.

What track bars have reputable joints that will not allow play? And joints that stay good the longest.

I was thinking JKS but i BELIEVE i read something that they have big problems with hitting the diff cover. Maybe not?
