Rear Trac Bar

So... I am about to start running a 2.5 in lift on my JKU. I will be a 2.5 coil lift, am I going to need to run a rear trac bar? Or will I be able to use my stock bar?... Or do I just need a rear relocation bracket?

I already have a front adjustable trac bar. Just trying to figure somethings out, so I can have one install day. Not a start, stop, start, stop kinda week waiting for parts to come that I forgot I needed. Ha-ha. Thanks!

Very likely you'll be just fine with a rear bracket. Frame mount is preferred, I have a Rough Country which hasn't given me fuss. $30, frame mounted.

You will need an axle or frame side bracket that raises/lowers the track bar and you can keep your stock one.

I have an old tf frame side drop bracket you can have. I don't think they use them any more, don't know why.
