Don't waste your money. You really don't need that track bar. If there is a sway problem, there are other issues involved to be sure. The track bar only limits the body roll in relation to the...

well, duh! obviously not used properly. For most, "not over the top" vehicles, the highlift is safe. Just because someone doesn't know how to use a tool, does not make that tool bad or unsafe for...

Definitely pull them off! The 31's will still fit, but you'll have some minor rubbing issues when flexing and turning, but still driveable. You can also replace them with a 'safe' 1" shackle lift...

So.... back to the original question, I would think the 'farm jacks' would work just as well in most instances. I have a High-Lift (which I won at my first Jeep Jamboree many years ago), and it...

Yes, they will fit. With mild driving you should be ok, but if you get flexy, or turn tight corners, you will feel the rubbing.
Many ways to make it work tho. Adjust your steering stops, add...

IF you go with the 2.5" RC lift, you will probably get more than that out of it. I ended up with about 4" lift! The kit says (an is usually true) that you won't need extended brake lines or TC drop...

I have mine mounted across the back (but I don't have a back seat either).
Custom built mounting system using long bolts and wing nuts with rubber bushings to keep vibrations down.

The less expensive route would be to do a mild shackle lift (No more than 1" tho!) or a 1" or 2" body lift - that does not require any transfer case drop or brake line issues.
Suspension lifts will...

Is it that the shifter just won't go into any other gear? It can only slip into reverse?
If that is so, then you need to take it to a transmission shop. Could be a linkage issue or the gears could...

$$ Cha-ching, Cha-ching $$ ...ya want fries with that?
