Wanting to replace our stock track bar with a more durable and adjustable piece for the trails, we turned to Skyjacker for its Adjustable Front Track Bar Kit for our TJ Jeep Wrangler. This adjustable piece also fits the XJ (’84-01 Cherokee), ZJ (Grand Cherokee ‘93-98) and our TJ (’97-2006 Wrangler).
The adjustability of the track bar helps keep tracking aligned during articulation on the trail during serious suspension travel. Offering up to 24 inches of total travel, Skyjacker’s Adjustable Front Track Bar Kit relocates the track bar to the top of the axle. It features a three-piece, Teflon-lined spherical rod end as well as a heavy-duty replacement steering stabilizer.
For the kit, Skyjacker calls for about one to two hours of install time. Required tools are: safety glasses, metric/standard wrenches and sockets, measuring tape and a torque wrench.
To get started, park the vehicle on flat, level ground and set the emergency brake. Follow along with the process in the pictures below:
