No problem at all. We can't bag too bad on Mopar and FCA, at least they gave us a great Wrangler to build upon!
Is it necessary to have a front or rear or both adjustable track bar on a Mopar 2” lift with 35’s?

The picture shows it very well for someone who is used to looking at it. The only way to correct it would be to use an adjustable track bar... That is the proper way to address it..
Can you please address how it got that way in the first place?

For the front, the track bar is required. For the rear, either a track bar relocation bracket or track bar will do the trick just fine... It is all about getting the axles square for a given lift height...

The reason it ended up that way was because lift was added without all the proper corrections needed to support the amount of lift installed. There will be various opinions on how much is needed and when for various lift heights, but in general the Mopar ones will need a front track bar and in the rear it will need a relocation bracket and or track bar to get the axles square side to side in the vehicle.

Sorry I should’ve clarified. Does the track bar in the front need to be replaced if you have added a 2 inch Mopar left on a 2018 JLUR? If you add a 2 inch Mopar lift will that put the axles out of square?

So what happens if you do not add what you’re suggesting? needs to be done and they’re out of square? Why would Mopar not even mention anything about that you might have to add a new track bar or brackets, etc.

When your axles are not square, the vehicle will dog track down the road, your coils will contact the bump stops more off road, etc. etc. Why they do not make mention of it is not our call. But you will not see us selling one JL system without those components.

I noticed there is a new Rock Krawler Rear Spring Correction Pad Kit being sold out there part number RK06840. Funny thing is that I could not find it at the Rock Krawler website. Could the Rock Krawler team say what are these for? Do they correct anything on MOPAR 2" lift kits? Thank you.

The rear spring kit is for our rear coils only. One of the things we noticed with the JK rear coils is that the rear upper spring seat was a nice big diameter and the lower spring seat diameter was really small. This is not an ideal condition and for the JL the tradition continued so we opted to create a larger bottom spring seat diameter to create a more stable coil in the back of the JL applications. It works great, but unfortunately it will not work for all rear coils in the industry. We took a lot of unique approaches to the JL that many questioned at first and most others are not jumping on board with them or simply copying what we have done.

Will this work on the 2” Mopar? Does is just make it more stable? Does it lift it a little by installing them.
Again, what are you gaining by adding these pads?

The rear pads as we mentioned above are strictly for RK and RK only at this time unless others start to adopt that philosophy as well. We have done a lot of things unique with the JL and will continue to do so with future product developments. The base vehicle chassis wise has a lot of little detail items that can make it so much better it is not even funny. As we design and develop our long arm stuff we are noticing more and more. It is a great vehicle to improve upon for sure....
