With crossover steering or without crossover steering?

39" definitely isn't the trac bar....and adj. trac bar for a lift using stock lower mount and a drop upper bracket is 29".

Of course that's completely the wrong setup if you are using crossover steering and that measurement is of no use to you.

for like 2 weeks Ill be running WITHOUT crossover, but the only place my truck will be sitting is at the paint shop. is there anyway instead of spending 150 bucks on an adjustable track bar, can I use the stock bar? it measures 30" eye to eye...I have an 8" lift with the 8" kit drop bracket and the stock bar...anyway to use the stock bar?

Cut it, sleeve it, weld it.


For crossover it's completely different upper and lower mounts and a longer bar.

29" bars are *adjustable* not fixed.

As I mentioned it's neither here nor there as a 10" lift with crossover steering uses completely different upper and lower mounts that are no longer in the stock locations and a longer adjustable bar.

Sorry, I had misinterpreted what you had said, thanks for clearing it up. Do you know the length of the Icon 05-07 adj. trac bar at it's shortest point? How much adjustment does it have? And lastly will it work for a 10.5" lift?

I'll see if I can get those specs tomorrow.

Using a 8" trac bar bracket on the 10.5" lift I take it?
