Jeep Wrangler JK Front Trackbar Brace Bracket
In spite of all its improvements over previous models, the 2007+ Jeep Wrangler JK is not entirely without fault. One particularly troublesome problem involves inadequate bracing of the factory track bar brackets. A startling number of vehicles have been disabled on the trail when the factory track bar bracket separated from the axle housing without notice. Vehicle owners have reported this problem on both axle housings, and although it occurs more commonly on modified applications, it can also affect stock vehicles, and lead to Death Wobble.
To eliminate this threat, JKS Manufacturing has developed the Front Trackbar Brace. This ingenious product reinforces the factory bracket and ensures your track bar mount will never fail. It welds directly to the original bracket and axle housing at multiple points, providing an extremely strong and permanent solution. As a side benefit, the Front Trackbar Brace relocates the steering damper to a more effective position that improves clearance and protects the damper from impact off-road. A secondary mounting location for the track bar is also provided to accommodate high-clearance steering conversions.
When combined with the JKS Rear Trackbar Brace, Wrangler JK owners can take comfort in knowing that both track bar mounts are solid, safe and secure. Of course, these products should always be installed before damage occurs to the factory brackets. Waiting for failure to occur is far more difficult and expensive to repair, not to mention dangerous if you’re miles from home.
