    USMCgunner, hopefully I'm leaving this summer for Delaware.

    I won't be putting a trackbar in the rear of the jeep once the leafs are in. I do have to get a traction bar because they said the axle will roll. M.O.R.E makes a pretty serious one, but it also cost a serious penny.

    Dude the worst that can happen is that you screw up some metal and learn a few things before you get it right. There are a ton of us here that could/would help. They are actually pretty straightforward in their design.

    I'm gonna give it a shot when the time comes. I'll make sure to ask a LOT of questions before burning and melting metal. My only concern is that since I won't be doing this down here, I may be on my own (ie need to secure a welder). I know there's a couple of guys on here from Delaware that might be able to steer me in the right direction.

    I am sure we can collectively figure something out Bro...maybe even fab the bulk of it up at your current ride height (which should be staying the same I think) and leave you some adjustment at the mounting point to the frame. There are plenty of ways to skin a cat...some are just more fun and entertaining than others...the good part is that they all result in the same dead cat!
    Cheers!

    There must be something to your idea Black Diamond's new coil conversion kit for YJs keeps the leafs in the rear, and they also do a similar setup for the TJ. Their old YJ kit had coils on all four corners, but they put the leafs in the rear on both YJ and TJ kits for added stability like you said. Maybe looking at how they set it up can give you some ideas. They have a pretty detailed picture on the site.

    Thanks a lot. I will definitely be checking their setup out.

    If you build your own traction bar you might be able to use the factory upper control arm brackets. This is just a thought, but in my head I'm seeing a control arm modified to resemble one of RE long arm front CA, or something like what is is used in the set up above, and add a bracket to the underside of the axle.
