Chanch0 You're right, I didn't read a 52 page post on Christmas Day. I asked for a simple explanation is all.

I can get my information elsewhere.

You clearly didn't read the link I pointed you to in Post #2. Read that first, in its entirety.

I'm seriously considering the JKS front and rear adjustable track bars.
there is no reason to buy the JKS bumpstops. they're nice and cool, but drastically overpriced. if you buy they're front track bar, you might as well get 3" bumpstop extensions and kiss your uptravel goodbye. Like I said, buy the Currie...its the best choice.

check out Performance Accessories, or Rubicon Express for cheap bumpstop extensions. PA body mounts would good. Or heck, epoxy some hockey pucks down to the spring pad.

the rear is going to depend on your shock length. yes you will need bumpstop, but the amount will be determined by shock length most likely.

Currie requires 2"...you can stretch that 1.5" on stock length arms (15.75" eye to eye), if you run the stock diff cover and don't mind the track bar rubbing paint off it. JKS requires even more.

Get a Currie TJS model, and make sure to add 2" front bumpstop extensions. Every aftermarket track bar out there will require even more bumpstop to prevent hitting the diff cover.

tj front adjustable track bars for 0-3.5", does yours hit or fit? - JeepForum.com
Will do!! Thanks for your advice.

AzTJ Yeah, go with the JKS/Currie one... But not the one with the drop bracket, thats unnecessary at only 3" of lift.

RE Track Bars

I'm looking for front and rear adjustable track bars. I went to RE's website and it looks like they have the 1600, 1610 and 1620. Here's where I get confused.

I am lifting my rig 3.25".

1600 Adjustable Front Track Bar works with 3.5"-4.5" of lift.

1610 Extreme Duty Adjustable Front Bar works with 4.5"-7.5" of lift

1630 Adjustable rear track bar works with 4"-7" of lift.

You also have to use some sort of bracket with these track bars. I thought that have an adjustable track bar meant that you eliminated the need for a bracket.
