The JKS Telescoping Trackbar is a direct replacement for the original and features a locking, slip-shaft mechanism that is greasable for smooth, silent operation. When unlocked, the trackbar becomes transparent to the vehicle, allowing unrestricted suspension travel and maximum off-road performance. To prevent binding, high quality, Teflon-lined heim joints attach the trackbar to the axle and chassis.
The relocation brackets supplied with most lift kits change the angle of the trackbar in relation to the steering drag link. The alignment of these components is critical to prevent bump steer a condition that changes the direction of the front wheels in response to suspension movement, as opposed to steering input. Upgrade to a JKS Telescoping Trackbar instead for uncompromised performance on-road and off.
The front trackbar, or panhard rod, provides stability and safety on leaf sprung Wrangler models at the unfortunate cost of reduced suspension travel. Removal of the front trackbar dramatically improves off-road performance and suspension articulation. However, the additional forces absorbed by the leaf springs and bushings can quickly lead to premature failure and unsafe operating conditions.

JKS Manufacturing Telescoping Front Track Bar Reviews
It works well but getting out to unloosen it is a pain. I'm going to modify it so it uses a lock like a vise grip with a pin to keep it secure.
