Front and Rear Track Bars

Alright well I have a 4" RC lift on the way and I need to know how much it will affect steering, handling and what not if I were to leave both track bars off. I have to drive this heep about a hundred miles round trip a day so handling if very important.
Thanks
Robbie

Take them off. This is discussed almost every day. Take the trac bars off, and use a sway bar disco.

Black '91 YJ, pretty much stock for now. Finished engine rebuild. Runs beautifully.

Yep. I've had mine off for about six months with no problem.

Keep the axles centered. Not really needed with SUA spring leaf suspension though.

I pulled my rear bar but left the front. For some reason I just feel safer that way driving my 3 year old around.

yep take em off. i just installed a RC 4inch kit and i took both track bars and the sway bar off. Eventually i may get some quick discos and throw the swaybar back on, the track bars are gone for good though.
