    Review & Install Video

    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.

    Made for Lifting. Rough Country has developed a solution for poor handling and axle alignment issues due to lifting.

Designed for use with 2.5-6 inches of suspension lift, this bar will maintain a centered axle and provide the stance you need when attacking the roughest off road trails and terrain.

    Forged Strength. The Rough Country Forged Rear Adjustable Track Bar is constructed from forged steel for extreme strength and is just what you'll need to hit the trails hard with a lift. Weighing in at 16lbs this heavy duty track bar is twice the weight of your JK's factory equipment. It's ends are equipped with Clevite brand, OEM style rubber bushings for the same reliable handling you'd expect from stock parts.

    Installation and Warranty. This bar bolts on painlessly, and once installed can be adjusted on your JK for a simple way to tune into your lift's needs without uninstalling like most adjustable options on today's market. As with all of Rough Country's suspension components, this part is backed by their Lifetime Replacement Warranty, providing you with an unrivaled value and service for years to come.

    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.

      Very heavy duty!

      Excellent quality product except for the washers. They collapsed on my drive home from the shop causing my drive shaft to shift. Replaced the washers and recentered the axle, I'm very happy. It's worth the money and an extra dollar for heavy duty washers.

      Front and rear track bars did the trick

      I recently did a Rubicon Express 2.5” lift on my 2017 JK Rubicon Unlimited which came with the rear adapter bracket to reuse the OEM track bars. I knew it would throw the diffs off center a bit but I didn’t know how much it would effect the handling. It was pretty squirrelly. After a lot of research and price matching, I decided on the Rough Country adjustable bars. Put them both on in about an hour and it made an incredible difference. I dialed them in to about 1/32” side to side and it handles and tracks better than ever. The instructions were wrong about the size wrenches you need and there were no torque specs on them, but a quick call to Rough Country and they said 125# for the main bolts and 26# for the cinch bolts. Great quality, solid bars, very heavy duty and a lot cheaper than Teriflex. I highly recommend them and Extreme Terrain had them to me in 2 Days.

      After putting on a 2.5 inch lift the Jeep would drift when hitting dips on the road. I installed a front and rear adjustable track which fixed the problem. Very satisfied.

      Robust

      The part is way more robust than stock. I put in a 2.5 Teraflex lift and during my research decided to buy the adjustable track bar to ensure my axel was center after the install. Part installed perfectly although probably not a necessary component for how little I lifted my 11 JKU.

      Beefy but

      This adjustable track bar ran out of adjustment before my wheels were centered. I have 2.5" lift but there's a correction bracket mounted on the left side of the rear axle. This track bar may have had enough adjustment without the correction bracket but I believe it's more important to keep the track bar as parallel to the axle as possible. So be aware that this track bar will probably fit your Wrangler JK if you have a 2.5 - 6 inch lift and NO geometry correction bracket. The instructions say that the pinch bolts are 18mm but they are really 16mm.

      Awesome track bar!!

      My jeeps rear tire was sticking out of the drivers side 1/2 inch after a 4" suspension lift and spacers to level it off. So I purchased this track bar and it was very easy to install and got axle re-centered. I just followed instruction sheet and got it all done in 30 mins. I definitely recommend!!

      They are heavy duty. Replaced stock front and rear track bars after only 5k miles when I added a lift so can't tell if the new track bars are helping anything yet or if they are worth purchasing.
