No rear track bar. No front track bar. AND take out your sway bar. You will be amazed at how well it does off road. But will be different on road. Not too bad IMO

In before the merge.

And realized how stupid it looks when I type stuff like that after the merge.

Not really. All of us who have been enjoying this train wreck gave you a chuckle.

The bit size is 55. Soak the crap out of that thing with PB Blaster first, or you will be buying 2 bits.... Good Luck!

When I removed mine, I broke my bit using a 1/2" drive breaker bar. I put a pair of Vice Grips on the bolt head and they held until I broke the bolt. Once I was done it all went in the scrap pile and I haven't looked back.

Put the air on the nut, not the bolt.

Just dump the bars!

I'm not done with my rebuild but couldn't wait to take it out. Went to our desert home and got the jeep dirty in The Chocolate Mountains. Going there we go through the mountains up and down a two lane twisting road. This is my first time without the front and rear track bars....what a difference! I thought driving down the winding roads would be a little nerve wracking, but it actually handled the curves better without the bars. With the bars there is no body lean, it's jarring! Without the bars I could accelerate through the turns, the jeep rear end would drop and I could power through the turn. I grew up in the mountains and I love driving winding roads (my wife hates it) and my jeep handles the curves much better without the bars, not to mention how much better it rides on the hwy and off road.
