Frame side rear trackbar bracket

I need a new bracket for the frame side as I need to push my axle back and barely have half an inch before my bumpstops are going to hit the trackbar brackst on the frame.

Anybody know of a good bracket? I can't seem to find one for frame side. Everything I'm finding is axle side. Any input is appreciated

Rock Krawler has one. Ballistic Fab, Ruffstuff, etc...
Or you can add a tab and double-shear the back half of the OEM bracket.
I used the RK one when I originally stretched my 2-Door.

Adding the tab is the easiest and cheapest way to go. I have done several of them. It really puts it in the best location, If you mount a new bracket too far back you will hit the shocks.

Ok. So if I add a tab, do I cut the front half of the stock bracket off so it will have more clearance?

What size tab do you recommend?

I don't think you'll have clearance issues with the factory bracket.

Mine is 3/16" plate and I run a slug in the stock mount with a long bolt through all three holes.

This is what I have

No, you will use the back side of the factory bracket. I would use some 1/4" bar to build it from.
