Ya you will need one. me and my brother both had 6.5 pro comp lifts and we still used the stock one but it did lean a little on the drivers side about 1/4" I just added the pro comp kit that makes the 6.5 a 8.5" kit and I did manage to get the stock trac bar in but it leans like 1" now. I have a adjustable trac bar on the way. Its a icon. I like the ones with the Heim joints. What size tires ya tring to clear?

Yep, your gonna need an adjustable track bar in order to get your front axle recentered. Get yourself an adjustable Icon track bar, its the only way to go. Contact Dan or Marty over at Truck Toyz and they will hook you up...Here's a link:

I looked on the pro comp site and didnt see anything. The fun country II's are what I have they are a 325/80/16 I guess thats like a 37/13.5/16 and I thought those were wide but they were ok on my 6.5 lift ,now Im looking into the toyo MT's 38/14.50/16's fun country's 15.5's must be super wide.
