    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?!?

    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.

    I am sorry not at the moment. I have a meeting next Wednesday to get an update on all the upcoming JL products.

    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.

    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.

    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.
