I have not had an update on it recently. I will get an ETA and update here.
I would like to know as well. Think I'm gonna go with your spacer, and add F and R trac bars just for piece of mind. Eventually shocks. My goal is to retain factory ride. Let me rephrase that, that's my wife's goal, and since it's hers, I guess her opinion counts?!?

Is it my imagination or am I missing something but isn't the Forged Front Track bar basically the same as the rear track bar on a JL? In other words will the Front adjustable track bar also work on the back as well?
The rear bar is approx 4" longer than the front and is clearanced for the diff in the center and the exhaust. Unfortunantely, I wouldn't count on them being interchangeable.

Jeeps lots of jeeps
Received mine today. It's no joke when they say it's beefy and nearly 2x the weight of the factory unit!
The Factory trackbar(bottom) looks beefy, but it's hollow.
I decided to order the RC trackbar(Middle) to replace the one that came in my skyjacker kit(Top.) I was not a fan of the metal heim joint at the one end, and not being able to adjust it on the Jeep.

Are the Skyjacker bushing polyurethane? Does it need to be
greased? Why didn't you like it?

I had a track bar with polyurethane bushings once and it was noisy. Made a lot of creaking and cracking noises.

The rough country looks to be maitenance/grease free which is a plus.

The Rough Country uses a similar style joint to the OEM track bar. The Skyjacker uses a metal heim joint at one end which is one reason I decided to swap it out. On my mostly daily driven Jeep I try to avoid metal joints whenever possible. The other reason was lack of on vehicle adjustability. I swap parts frequently and having to drop one end to make adjustements is a pain.

How do the Skyjacker and Rough Country trackbar compare in regard to weight? Are they similar?

Hmmm, looks beefy but i’ll still wait for the Synergy. Teraflex has released front and rear track brackets. Raising improves roll center which translates to better handling. Pending amount of lift you run, brackets and adjustable track bars would be best.

@Rough Country Suspensions Any update on the rear trackbar?
I have been contacting them almost weekly to ask for updates and they keep telling me they have no ETA. Really want this one, due to the stock bushing style and ability to adjust while on the vehicle. Plus I already have their front one.

Have another rear one as a temp or just running as-is without?

Running with stock for now. Was able to get it within 1/4" by pushing on the side of the bumper, but would prefer to get it exact with a track bar.
