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.

I have heard that removing the track bars puts more of the Jeeps weight on the springs and causes them to sag sooner. Any truth to this or is it complete hokum.

Complete non sense lol all a track bar is for is to keep the body on top of the springs which is helpful when having coils but useless with leafs.

Mine has 2.5" Zone lift, no track bars or sway bar, no problem. It is my DD about 64 miles daily for work.

The track bars are made of some decent tube stock. Throw them on the metal pile behind the garage for future projects.

Good point, that is some heavy metal. This forum has been such a help on my build. I'm trying things I never would have thought of. My only complaint is all the great ideas on here are costing me money....at least removing the bars was free!
