05 lj rear track bar bracket?

im about to finally lift my lj about 3.5".
i have a teraflex adjustable rear track bar.
do i need a rear track bar relocation bracket also?

i thought with an adjustable track bar i would not need the bracket.

what is my best option?

Pretty sure you won't need a relocation bracket if your tbar is adjustable. That bracket is for a stock bar

Truf. The rear might feel weird tho but hard telling. If you have the adjustable, run it. It won't blow up.

I have JKS adjustable trac bars,front and rear on my T/J. Factory brackets works great.

I am not 100% on this, I think the trac-bar will rub on the top of the stock bracket because of the steeper angle with the lift. Also I have heard of some gas tank clearance issues. FYI my TJ is lifted 4" with a sye, I am running a RE adj bar with the angled bracket for a cv drive shaft and the Currie bracket brace welded to the axle tube.
