Rough Country Forged Front Trackbar

So, probably like many of you I needed/wanted a beefier trackbar. that is easy to adjust. First one that shows in many searches is Teraflex, but it costs a hefty penny.
Teraflex=261$
RC=179$ reg price, on sale for 129

Checking my receipts I paid full price a few months ago. lol oh well, any way, during my search I couldn't find any pics or real reviews of the RC one. So, here's mine, install super easy, on the ground. Adjustment on the ground super easy. I did make the adjustment then backed down the driveway and back to front of garage and re measured. Wheels were centered underneath. Steering does feel better but really I couldn't tell you if it does anything or not but being heavier and having the axle centered it feels like it steers better to me so there's that.

That's a nice TF, I mean RC Track Bar!

Honestly, it's a blatant copy but I but it works just as well.
I might have gotten that one if my JKS kit didn't come with a track bar...

How is this thing holding up a few years later? I need a new one because my "upgraded" track bar broke at the jam nut threads. This budget teraflex seems like a good option.

I like the JKS, it's a beefy thing of beauty.

Unfortunately, I had to replace my JKS, not due to failure but due to clearance issues with my new Core 44 axle. The Core 44 has a huge dif cover and the JKS just didn't clear it.

I now have a Rubicon Express HD Track Bar that was tested to fit with the Core 44. It's beefy too, but not as beefy as my JKS was.

I also have the RCX track bar. I can't complain about it at all.

I decided to go big or go home. Hopefully never have to buy another one of these again. Ordered the yeti HD adjustable track bar.
