Regular left hand drive trackbar
The factory Jeep Cherokee track bar locates the front axle side to side on the vehicle. It is located at the driver's side framerails and runs down to the passenger of the front axle.
When lifted, the track bar creates a diagonal line and shortens the distance between the mounting points thus shifting the axle towards the driver's side.... the axle becomes cockeyed. This effect is definetely noticeable with lifts over 3". A worn and misaligned track bar can also lead to the dreaded DEATH WOBBLE on our Jeeps.
The Rocky Road Jeep Cherokee track bar kit eliminates these problems by mounting it in the original location and having an adjustable tie rod end recommended for lifts 3-6" in height.
Rocky Road also makes track bars for RHD Jeeps (for Jeepers in many other parts of the world). Minimum recommended lift height for the track bars on RHD Jeeps is the same at 3" of lift.
Some special features of the Rocky Road track bar which help set it apart from others on the market....
RRO kits use a tie rod end which is easily found at any auto parts store. In the event this piece needs to be changed out, you can do it quickly and easily from any parts store. Other companies use special tie rod ends that can only be purcased direct from that company, meaning they are more expensive, and not quick to come by.
All Rocky Road track bar kits come with a lifetime guarantee against denting and bending. We use .25 DOM tubing to build our track bar. Other companies use lighter grade steel. And really no one offers a lifetime guarantee because their kits simply are not built strong enough to offer such a program.
If you're looking at lower priced kits and debating on the Rocky Road system... consider the features above. Those features do make a difference! If you're looking at higher prices kit and thinking they are of better quality simply because of the price... that is incorrect. We are able to keep our prices lower because we are the actual manufacturer of this kit. Most 4x4 companies outsource the manufacture of their parts. Rocky Road is an OEM manufacturer, everything is built in-house, which saves you money! Don't pay more unecessarily... because you're not getting more.
Jeep Cherokee Track Bar kits come powdercoated in black. This same kit works for the TJ and the ZJ Jeeps.
