I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rough Country Forged Front Adjustable Track Bar fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs with two and a half to six inches of lift. There are a couple of different reasons to upgrade your factory track bar to an aftermarket adjustable one. And one of those is the adjustability. Any time you lift your Jeep, your axle is going to be off-center a little bit. And you'll notice that when you turn the wheels lock to lock, they might rub a little bit on the frame of the control arm when you turn them in one direction but not in the other direction. Or you can just visually look at the Jeep and see that the axle has shifted a bit. So an adjustable track bar will allow you to completely re-center the axle.Another reason you might want to upgrade to a stronger track bar, like this forged one, is that in an off-road situation with big tires, you may have already bent your factory track bar. Or you're looking to upgrade to ensure that that isn't a weak point in your suspension system. Finally, when you have big tires and you're driving down the road, hitting bumps in the road, you may have your factory track bar flexing a little bit, which can cause some feedback through the steering wheel and feel a little bit like a wobble. A much stronger forged track bar like this will eliminate that issue completely. The Rough Country Track Bar is much less expensive than some of the other track bars on the market, and it'll fix all of those issues.Like it says right in the name, this is a forged steel track bar, and it's gonna be really strong. It's an inch and a quarter outer diameter, and the thing weighs in at about 16 pounds. Again, this is gonna be really beefy. The adjustment is done through this adjustment sleeve, and this is what's known as double adjustable. So you can install both ends on the Jeep and just turn the sleeve to lengthen or shorten the bar to center your axle. That makes adjusting the bar much easier than ones that are single adjustable, which would require you to disconnect one end of the bar or the other and rotate the entire bar to make that adjustment.Once you have everything adjusted properly and the axle is centered, everything's held in place with these two clamps, so nothing's going to move around, whether on road or off. The track bar has this factory-style bend in it, so it's gonna clear the pumpkin or front differential all the way through the suspension travel. This track bar has Clevite brand rubber bushings on both ends, which are similar to your factory bushings, so they're gonna hold up really well over time.Overall, I'd say this track bar is really well-built. And in my opinion, it's similarly built to some of the track bars on the market that are almost double the cost of this one. Now, I know the reputation that Rough Country has, or at least had, for building products that didn't always hold up as well as they should have over time. Well, recently, Rough Country has made big strides in turning around their quality of their products. And I have to say this thing is really well-built. And the nice thing is that Rough Country does back this up with a lifetime warranty. So if anything were to go wrong, they're gonna replace it for you without questions.Getting this adjustable track bar mounted on your Jeep is pretty simple. In fact, there are only two bolts. Unfortunately, to remove your factory bolts, you'll have to unload the suspension, which does require a little bit of work. First, you'll have to support the Jeep from the frame and remove your lower shock bolts, remove your sway bar bolts, and possibly your brake line brackets. That'll allow you to sag the front axle down and remove the springs.Once the springs are removed and the axle is unloaded, you'll be able to remove the two bolts holding your factory track bar in place and install your new one. From there, you'll put the Jeep back together and put it under its own weight on its tires, then make the adjustments to center the axle completely. The whole process should take right around two hours using regular hand tools. But if you have access to air tools or impact tools, it'll definitely speed the process along.So if you're looking for a really strong adjustable track bar so that you can either re-center your axle or you're looking for something that will not flex or bend on-road or off-road, this is a really solid front adjustable track bar that'll save you some money over the top brands on the market. So that's my review of the Rough Country Forged Front Adjustable Track Bar, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, with two and a half to six inches of lift that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Went on easily, super HD. My Jeep rides so much better now that has been added. Had one on the front for sometime and Jeep was squirrelly prior to installing the rear adjustable track bar. I have a 3.5" lift, run 35's and this made a huge difference in handling and riding.Helpful (1)

So I installed 2.5” lift with 35” tires and offset wheels and noticed immediately that the jeep was very darty on the highway. Especially when driving on uneven pavement. Something the steering would even be loose, momentarily, depending on our speed and size on the bumps in the road. Not good! So I added an beefier adjustable track bar to the front first and notice about a 70 improvement in the handling. That’s when I decided to add this beefier rear track bar. And I glad that I did. It seems to had done the trick. Way more comfortable driving at highway speeds now. Super easy to install.Helpful (1)

RC Rear Adjustable Tack Bar
Installed front and rear RC track bars fairly quickly and easily. Fixed my 1.5" axle offset as well as provided a far beefier suspension component versus factory for a reasonable price. Definitely advise upgrading track bar/ control arm bolts while you're down there. Thanks Extreme Terrain!Helpful (3)

Will say hearing all the bad press Rough Country gets this track bar is awesome! Much heavier and beefier then stock. Great addition to the Rubicon Express lift kit. If in the market for a track bar and on a budget get this one. Easy to put on and adjust to the right species. Would totally buy again and if anyone ask this product is perfect.Helpful (4)

Read my review
It's trackbar It's trackbar, it's heavy, it's steel! Works as advertised. It's beefier than the stock unit and allows for adjustment with the 4" lift I have. Two bolts and it's installed. Getting the bolts to 125lbs takes some doing as it's not exactly easy for a out of shape guy like me to generate that much force in such a confined space while laying on my back. But the product itself is well made and not made of unobtainium like some of the way more expensive options are.Helpful (6)
Does this need a relocation bracket or bracket ? Will it just bolt directly on ??
A relocation bracket is not needed for the install of this rear track bar.
Do you have to have a alignment done after install
An Alignment is not necessary with the Rough Country Forged Rear Adjustable Track Bar, as you can simply use a tape measure to adjust the axle's center location.
What is a good starter length for a 3.5 lift
We recommend adjusting the Rough Country Forged Rear Adjustable Track Bar to the middle of its adjustment range and lengthening/shortening the bar from there to get to where you need.
How much does this part weigh? I do. Not need rock crawling weight.
The shipping weight of the Rough Country Forged Rear Adjustable Track Bar for 2.5-6 in. Lift is 20lbs.
With this adjustable track bar i won't need a track bar drop bracket with a lift kit?
Hello, if your lift kit is in between 2.5 to 6 inches you will not need a drop bracket for it.
Hello, since this is an Adjustable Track Bar you wouldn't need the relocation bracket.
