    This Rough Country Front Track Bar Bracket is for those of you who that have a 2007 and up JK that are looking to change up your front suspension geometry. This is going to raise the axle side of your track bar flattening out at track bar angle a little bit and it's also going to relocate that factory stone stabilizer which is going to help keep it up out of the way of rocks when you're out on a trail. Now, it is important to know that if you just changed the end of your track bar mounting location by raising it up a little bit, you will also have to do something with your drag link in order to keep those two parallel. If your drag link and you track bar or out of parallel, you are going to end up with bump steer, that's just how suspension geometry works. So, you are going to need an additional piece to run with this bracket. I would recommend running this bracket alongside of a drag link flip kit to get everything back in parallel. If you are looking for a front track bar bracket though, I think this one is pretty well built. It's going to attach in a variety of different locations to the front axle giving you a very solid mount, and it also does come with that steering stabilizer relocation bracket, which is a nice added bonus. Like I said, this is a pretty well-built bracket, this is going to be steel, it's welded through and through, covered in a black powder coat finish, and I do like the way this mounts to your axle in a couple of different locations. As you can see on the table here, I do have a U-bol. So this is going to U-bolt around the axle tube as well as mounting to your factory track bar location, and this does require you to drill a couple of holes so you have some additional mounting locations for this track bar bracket making it very, very solid. As I said, this does come with this additional bracket here that's going to allow you to relocate your steering stabilizer up out of the way. So, this is a very complete package as far as the end of the track bar goes. As I said, very important to note, you do also have to do something with your drag link like a drag link flip kit in order to avoid bump stop when you have this installed. So, I'm gonna give this a two out of three wrenches for installation because it does require a little bit of drilling. However, it's not a lot, you're just drilling into that factory track bar bracket and you still can revert back to a factory track bar location if you choose to. The housing drill aren't going to make it unusable or un-reversible, so two out three wrenches, probably not gonna be a big deal to drill a couple of holes for most of you in your drive way. However, if you're not comfortable drilling, go ahead and take your jeep to a shop to get this installed. Even with the drilling, this whole process shouldn't take you more than an hour to complete. The first step is, of course, removing the axle side of your track bar from your axle. Go ahead and unbolt that, get it up out of the way. At the same time, you're going to remove your steering stabilizer and get that out of the way. Then you can hold the bracket up in the location, bolting it into the existing holes using the bracket as a guide to drill the new holes put in center punch pilot, and then drill out those holes, and use the included hardware to get the bracket completely bolted down before you bolt in your steering stabilizer relocation bracket. Once that's bolted up, the last step is going to be moving your factory steering stabilizer bracket, if you need to, to ensure that you're not going to run out of stroke on your steering stabilizer as you turn the wheel lock to lock. This bracket will run you right around $40, which I do think is a pretty fair price. You're getting a solid bracket. It does attach in a couple of different locations. You're not gonna get any flex from this and you're also getting a steering stabilizer relocation bracket all for that one cost. However, it is important to know that this isn't stand alone product, you do have to run this alongside of a drag link flip or possibly drop pitman arm in order to get extreme geometry setback . So, if you're looking to a solid drop pitman arm or a flip drag link kit and you're looking for a bracket to also change the angle of your track bar, I definitely recommend taking a look at this one from Rough Country that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Do Your Lift Right. Once you lift your Wrangler JK up 3.5" to 4.5", you'll need to accommodate certain suspension components placement to ensure they work with your new ride height. Relocating where the track bar connects to the mounting point on the axle is a critical step. The Rough Country Track Bar Bracket kit provides unparalleled protection for off-roading by circumventing the track bar mounting point on your axle, which is a common weak spot on stock equipment.

    Align it For Safety. This Track Bar Bracket helps to align your track bar and steering damper to ensure better road handling with no wobble. This also helps to increase the lifespan of sensitive suspension components, ensuring you can tackle trails with confidence.

    Rugged Construction. This Track Bar Bracket is fabricated from heavy duty steel and utilizes a stronger U-bolt for attachment directly to the axle tube, ensuring it's up to the task of handling the toughest trails and rock walls.

    Application. This Track Bar Bracket is specifically designed to work with 2011-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK models that have 3.5" to 4.5" lift kits installed.

    Freight Notes. Freight items can only be shipped within the continental 48 states, no expedited methods.

        Is this bracket require if you have an adjustable trac bar, also will it require a drop pitman arm with a 4-6in lift.

        • I would indeed suggest a drop pitman arm at a 4-6 inch lift. In regards to the track bar bracket, this would allow an otherwise unadjustable or stock bracket to work for a 3.5-4.5 inch lift. It is an alternative to getting an adjustable track bar designed for a 3.5-4.5 inch lift.

        If I am planning on putting on the rough country 3.25 lift, do I really need this bracket?

        • The Rough Country Front Track Bar Bracket for 3.5-4.5 in. Lift is not required,but it is highly recommended as it will provide better road handling and more predictable steering, especially in emergency turning situations. This will also help reduce wear on the trac bar.

            A must if you flip you steering draglink!

            Easy install . It bolts to the existing track bar mount with the addition of drilling one hole. It helps put the track bar back on a parallel plane with a flipped drag link to cure any excessive steering feedback.

            Rear lift

            I have a 4" lift on the rear of my 20 16 wrangler. This bracket instruction said to use the center hole for centering the axle, but the axle is still slightly off. I tried the other holes, but they were worse. The instructions also state to drill 2 hole for the bracket installation. For the life of me, I cannot figure out were they are talking about. These instructions suck in black and white. Could not find any helpful online videos either.

            My '09 JKU came with a 4" lift when I bought it, but the steering geometry was off resulting in death wobble. This mod ERRADICATED the death wobble! If your rig is lifted, but the steering was never modified, I HIGHLY recommend this product. It's low cost and simple to install.

            Straight-forward install, but not "easy".

            This is a great product and the installation is easy to understand. However, there is one bolt that requires one to drill a hole in a tough place. Other than that, you don't even need to remove the front wheels (though I did have my axle on jack stands). I did not keep the factory steering stabilizer, so the small plate in the picture, along with a bolt, washer, and nut, were left over. The U-Bolt was finished black just like the bracket itself, which was nice. When installing, I found that my track bar did not line up exactly correct, which was to be expected. So, I used a come-along (a ratcheting hand winch) from the frame on one side to the axle on the other to bring it in line. After installing, I took it out and bounced my suspension on an untraveled dirt road to loosen up the suspension some, then went back in and double-checked that everything was still torqued in place. No issues, no surprises, and the fit was perfect. A very nice product.
