Dodge Off Road
DOR Heavy Duty Track Bar 94-02 Stock to 3"Dodge Off Road
This is our best-selling track bar for 2nd gen trucks, and it works on all trucks from stock height up to 3" lift. If your truck does not use a drop pitman arm, then this is the correct listing for your application. If your truck uses a drop pitman arm, you'll want the 4" to 8" track bar listed at the bottom of this page. Our stock to 3" track bar kit does not work with Mag Hytec diff covers. Fits all 1994 to 2001 Ram 1500 4x4 trucks and 1994 to 2002 Ram 2500/3500 4x4 trucks. Also fits the 2wd 3500 models with a solid front beam axle (cab and chassis trucks).
There are many track bars available for 2nd gen Dodge Rams, but none of them are perfect - until now! The Dodge Off Road Track Bar is honestly the best track bar you can get for your 2nd gen Ram 4x4, at any suspension height. We use a new track bar bracket that locates your track bar frame mount forward from the stock position to allow for your front axle to be pushed forward more than any other bar. Then we use an extremely heavy duty 7/8" shank heim joint to use at the frame end, and we have a custom Currie Johnny Joint at the axle end. The greaseable joint is rebuildable and is much stronger than any bushing, plus it offers more misalignment which means your front axle can move easily without the track bar binding up. Both ends of the track bar are adjustable, so the Dodge Off Road Track Bar can be used on trucks with basically any lift size, as well as stock height trucks. The bar is also adjustable while mounted on the truck! You just loosen the jam nuts and turn the bar, which makes setting your axle position extremely easy to do. We now use hex tube adapters at both ends so it is very easy to tighten the jam nuts, you simply put a wrench on the bar and another wrench on the jam nut. Nobody else offers this kind of user-friendly design!
The meat of the track bar is a 1.5" OD 1026 cold-rolled DOM tube with a 1/4" wall for unbelievable strength. The bar has no bends in it so it does not deflect at all, and because DOM does have some "give" to it in extreme situations, you can four wheel with this track bar and not worry about bending it if you happen to hit a rock or a tree stump. For daily drivers, this track bar will never bend or break. We have spent many years using and abusing this same DOM tubing in steering applications and are confident that it will never let you down.
The Dodge Off Road Track Bar can be made in custom lengths for trucks that are lifted extremely high (above 8" suspension), so send us an email and we will figure out how long your track bar needs to be. The standard sizes are stock to 3" lift, or 4" lift to 8" lift. Anything above 8" of suspension lift will be custom made for your truck.
The track bar kit includes all hardware (Grade 8) required and also instructions on how to install your kit. The bracket and bar both come powdercoated in gloss black. Installation does not require any cutting but you will need to drill two holes in a crossmember to bolt the bracket in place. Welding is also a great option if you have that capability. On some trucks, grinding the stock track bar mount on the axle helps provide extra clearance for the track bar and this becomes a necessary task the higher you lift your truck (due to the angle of the bar).
So what makes the DOR track bar better than anything else on the market?
- Ours uses superior replaceable parts for a long life, and ours is the only one that uses a Johnny Joint.
- It has no bends and a thicker tubing than any other bars, so it's stronger. With only two adjustment points, there is less room for failure.
- It is double adjustable, so it can be adjusted while bolted to the truck. This is important for getting the alignment perfect, and it makes the job a whole lot easier. Other track bars require you to remove one end of the bar to adjust them, which can be very frustrating and time-consuming. We also use hex tube adapters, which make it very easy to adjust the track bar, and tighten the jam nuts without scratching the tube.
- Ours is the only one made for trucks with more than 8" of suspension lift, and we are one of the only ones available for 2nd gens with more than 3" of lift. Stock or lifted, we have you covered.
- The DOR track bar is the only bar with zero failures, zero returns, zero complaints, period. Nobody else has this kind of track record.
- Like all of our parts, this is built by Ram truck owners and enthusiasts, who have tested multiple track bars over the years, and used that experience to come up with an end-all be-all track bar for our trucks. We aren't just another company trying to sell you something. We want you to have the best, and to be able to install something that will last, the first time.
- Our track bars are made specifically for 2nd gens, not a 3rd gen bar converted for use on a 2nd gen like almost all others. It's always better to use something that is actually designed for your truck, as opposed to trying to make a part from another truck fit. There are differences between the 2nd and 3rd gen track bar geometry, and on top of that, our bracket is much stronger than the 3rd gen conversion brackets. Plus the 3rd gen conversions are only good up to 3" of lift. And none of the 3rd gen track bars can be adjusted on the truck.
- Price! Compare the price of our HD track bar kit to any other option and you'll see that we have the least-expensive setup out of all high-end brands. There are cheaper options, but you'll be replacing them at some point. So do it right the first time and save yourself some money.
Heim seals are a great way to protect your track bar heim from inclement conditions. Our heims are the best you can get, however when exposed to salt, mud, water, and ice, they will require a little maintenance and can wear out faster if not maintained. We came up with these poly seals to cover up the ball of the heim without restricting movement. You get all of the strength of a heim joint, with the longevity of a bushing. These are recommended if you live in a northern climate or near saltwater, or if you really abuse your truck in muddy, wet conditions on a regular basis.
Totally changed how my truck steers and handles, it's so crisp. Thanks DOR!
Great friggin customer service and the product is top notch. Would be stupid to compare it to others.
First of all, I ordered this bar on 3/6 and it shipped out 4/13. When the bar arrived, I unboxed it. No included instructions or paperwork, they give you a QR code to pull up instructions on your phone, but its pretty straightforward. I go to install the bar, and bracket. The bracket mounts easily and I just hung the front axle and got a drill in there to drill the hole from the back side. The bar went in easily and was easy to adjust, but it would be MUCH easier to adjust if you just drop the whole tie rod when you install so you have room to work. The design of this bar is really good, and the quality was what I expected from DOR - the best. Looking forward to more upgrades in the near future.
Instantly fixed my death wobble, this is the best track bar you can get for 2nd gens!!!!
Wonderful job. If you are ordering plan ahead. Takes a month to get. But well worth it
I finally got tired of changing moog bars that aren't tight out of the box! drives like a new truck! Very well built.
So, did some looking around and researched many trac bars. Was going to go with one of the normal "heavy duty" ones from one of the bigger companies. But, luckily saw some guys in a Cummins Forum talking about this co.pany and their ridiculously stout products. So, I started to look and finally said ok. I ordered it and wished I would have gotten more updates as to where my order was in the production phase. Other than that I finally got it deli veered and have got to say WOW!! Not only was it stout as hell, but it's installed and instantly zero death wobbles or lose feeling steering wheel at higher speeds. And it has tightened my steering so good it's crazy! Soon I will be looking into replacing the rest of the steering components and can't wait to see how that will make the beast ride! It was kind of nerve racking because my order took longer than expected but can't blame the part for that.... I'd say get this bad boy and believe me you'll never regret It! I've told tons of friends about this company as well and hope they see the great solid parts that are made from Dodge Off-road as well. Thanks again DOR for building such great quality parts that make my truck so much safer for the family! Will be back very soon!!!!!
soo i bought a 2nd gen cummins. stock track bar stock y style steering trash dual stablizer setup everything was done to lift the truck as cheaply as possible, soo i replacesd the old inverted y style steering to the 2010 t style, big a beefy compaired to gen 2 stuff and it got alittle better then i replaced the pitman arm with a drop arm it helped a bit but not much. soo i put the steering brace on the truck witch i didnt buy from DOR but when this bearing dies im going to get their kit instead. helped a little but not much. i put a thuren king steering stablizer on and it was a noticeable change but steering still was not as good as i wanted it to be. so my ball joints were next they had a little bit of play but since im a mechanic and moogs were cheap i did them myself and saved a bout load of money on labor and it helped but still was not great soo i finally bough the dor track bar kit and thats what i was waiting for, of course after all those parts and 2gs later i got what i was looking for. i talked to plenty of 2nd gen owners and they all said deal with it, its just a dodge thing well i know that no mater what make the vehicle is steering should be better than sawing at the wheel going down the road and this track bar setup stopped that its amazing how much it helped and i cant thank thease guys enough yea its pricey and a 9/16 drill bit isnt cheap but its worth it in the end.. my steering still isnt perfect i need to get the sway bar and end links and some new shocks and long arms but for now atleast its enjoyable to drive because if it wernt for the low milage cummins engine in this truck the steering would have steered me away from buying the truck all togeather again awsome product all i can say is thankyou and to you guys looking for one just buy theirs and when you get it installed and tight just run a few beads of weld on the straights of the bracket soo you dont get any creeks from metal on metal since its impossible for it to be molded exactly for your truck your always going to have some gaps soo weld er up and be done with it and enjoy driving your truck again.
Installed on 2001 Dodge 2500, LB, QC, 4x4, diesel at 109,000 miles. Wow, what a difference, reduced wandering and a much more solid feel to the front end of the truck. 3,500 miles on it so far and loving it. Mounting brackedtis bolted and spot welded to frame and easily clears stock diff cover that has a Carli lower half diff guard installed. Rock solid, great customer service, would buy again with no hesitation.
