    Ya, it's stock. I can't see the bend in it, haven't taken it out. I'm picking up the new one tonight. I think the bend might be in the curve that clears the diff. I measured it, and it is about an inch shorter than it's supposed to be I think.

    Edit: It's a good inch shorter than the new one. Definitely bent somewhere.

    just for comparison, Harlan is almost 8,000 acres, Windrock is 72,000 Acres.

    Now that I did not realize! How many miles of trails they have?

    Looks like fun! How would you compare it to Harlan for the intermediate stuff? I'm working in Knoxville next week and might have time to take an evening trip up there.

    So, I ended up not being able to use my friend's trackbar from the club, so I ordered the RE1600 along with some new discos. Drilling out the frame mount was the hardest part; took me about 2 days and 3 drill bits. Also put in new bumpstops so I don't snap the new trackbar (and I can bend my fenders back down to their original shape). Probably took a total of 12 hours of work to get it done. I've learned a ton these past few weeks just doing all of this.

    New trackbar and Discos


    Getting ready to start the install. Comparing the trackbars (OEM tb still on the jeep)


    Drilling out the tb frame mount


    Finally got it installed. Looking good!




    Taking it off to install the new bumpstops


    Definitely the most difficult project yet. Did get it done though.

    looks good. Ought to think about upgrading the tie-rod on your steering, The stock tube will bend pretty easy.

    I'll do that. After I get it aligned again (6 month alignment warranty voided if I change any steering or suspension parts) I plan on upgrading pretty much all of the steering components.
