    That was my thought. Once things begin to bend or break its gone past it's fullest potential..haha. Build it like EVO 1, problem solved.

    Track bars really are a pretty crude solution. A triangulated four link would be much better for the OP’s needs.

    They guys at Evo tell me they are running a factory rear Trac bar. I just have a hard time seeing that. Unless Mel carries several spares and changes them regularly.

    Obviously Mel doesn't wheel as hard as you do. 🤣🤣

    I am not saying that Mel doesn't wheel hard. I also am.not saying that I wheel easy. I am looking for a solution, I just made a statement that I called them and they told me to stick with a stock track bar.

    I'm fucking with you, brother. 🍻

    My point is, if your track bar is bending there is a reason for it since several hard core wheelers stick with the stock bar with no issues.

    I'm no expert, so I can't say what the problem is, but I'm guessing something needs to be tweaked with your suspension setup. Possibly too much droop? Shocks too long, need limiting straps, etc.

    There is a reason there is no EVO adjustable or other after market track bar on their website. What were you doing when it bent?

    Wheeling hard and wheeling like an asshole are not be same thing. It is clear which category you fall in.

    Try the teraflex adjustable rear track bar.

    I hope you don't take this the wrong way but perhaps you can't see it because you lack experience. Based on what I've been reading, you don't even seem too interested in obtaining it. I help pit for Mel on a regular basis and I can assure you that we're NOT changing out track bars "regularly".

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
