when do I need an adjustable track bar?
 
I have a 2002 WJ 4.0L selec-trac. I just ordered Moab wheels and 245/65R17 Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor tires. that's all the bigger I want to go for tires because it's a daily driver and fairly good on gas and I would like to keep it that way.

however, it's creeping up on 140k now and the original shocks are really showing their age. I know it's time for new ones so I was thinking while I was at it, I might just do a budget boost. I was looking at the Skyjacker 2" with Hydro 7000 shocks. for this mild of a lift, will I need the adjustable track bar? or will I have any alignment issues otherwise?

and will I need extended sway bar end links, or anything else like that to help accommodate the lift? I know it won't see much off road use, just occasionally bombing around in deep snow.

thanks for reading.

You should be fine Dave.When you start going over 2" is when you start needing the other stuff . At 2.5" I could start seeing the offset toward the drivers side. When I added the 3/4" spacers it was easily noticeable so i pulled the trigger on a track bar and some end links.

This is a couple months old, but if you are still looking into this. I added a 2.5" on a 02 WJ and it's about 3/4 offset to the drivers side.

Dang if you could tell us if you did it. Am in the same dilemma.I have 2000 laredo that i want to do a 2" lift just for looks I dont offroad . Is it worth it or would I just get some tires and leave it at that. As far as tires i dont want anything big
