    Rear Trac Bar

    I have a Double throw Down Kit on my 2013 JKU, I have bent 2 rear Trac Bars. Has any one else had this problem? is it common? Do I continue to run factory rear trac bars or do I go to an aftermarket one that retains more strength?

    How did you need them? I'm pretty sure Eddie ran stock track bars on both Moby and Rubicat both have DTD evolever.

    Not saying that it can't happen but I'm running factory track bars on both my JK's running DTD's and on Moby, with a ProRock 80 in the rear. That rear track bar is over 10 years old.

    I just drive the hell out of it, this one bent down towards the diff, the other bent towards the floor board. Did i Mention i am running 500Hp and abuse the dog snot out of my jeep? Yesterday I also ripped the upper control arm Mount off the rear diff. I do not think it is a matter of doing something wrong but driving it like I stole it 4 days ago and trying not to get caught.

    Yeah abuse will always prevail. Change your driving habits and the track bar will be just fine. Common sense will save you a few bucks.

    I wouldn't say it is a lack of common sense. It is a matter of using the jeep to its fullest potential which I do. I was mainly wondering if any one else has had this problem and if so what was the fix that worked for them. I rock crawl and prerun this jeep. So I do use it for the best of both worlds.

    Sounds like you found your Jeep's "fullest potential" so replace the track bar with an OEM, dial back your enthusiasm a notch, and you should be fine. 🍻

    Maybe you should buy a buggy, or monster truck.

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.
