Sorry Coors not trying to steel your thread
You ain't stealing my thread. I won't be really taking it off roading a ton just cruising really on the main roads. So should I put it back on?

No. I ran my YJ with no trackbars no sway bar....never had a problem, whether crawling on the trail or doing 75 on the hwy.

I will be giving it a shot like I said. My other problem is either the clutch not disengaging or it's bad or synchros or tranny I don't know yet....

I'm really conservative when it comes to safety and modding our YJ mainly because my daughter drives it daily - street and freeway. I removed both the front and rear track bars and have never regretted it for one second. The Jeep rides better, is smoother over bumps, and removal did not degenerate the Jeep in ANY way.

I do; however, recommend keeping the sway bar on for frequent freeway driving. It's a dad thing and a smart safety thing. In Southern California, you never know when someone is going to text-steer into your lane at 70 MPH.

Already have had it happen to me, and good thing mine was hooked up. Personally I think you're a couple sandwiches short of a picnic basket if you want to willingly roll around town without a swaybar, but it's not my Jeep.

Just removed my front and rear track bar as well as keeping the front sway bar on. What a world of difference it has made. The nuts actually came loose with no problems. The only problem is figuring out how to get the rear track off. I couldn't get it to come off the pass side top mount. So driver side is zip tied up to the body for now, until I can get back under the jeep.

Me and the passenger came out ok as wearing seat belts. Only the windshield got crashed and nothing major.

Ok, now the garage man, another expert who prepares the rally carts in regard to roll cage and strengthening under carriage told me that because your track bar was not on you got roll over.

My question to you all, is this the fact? just have a look at my jeep and lemme know. Thanks all.

I am going to say that driving on sand on a hill side is what caused you to roll over. not having the track bar didn't do it.

I agree that the track bars taken off had nothing to do w the rollover.

Do I need front trac bar?

I'm going from a Rough Country 4" lift to an OME with about 2.5" - 3" of lift. When I "upgraded" to the RC lift I ditched my rear trac but kept the front. In doing so I was instructed to install a Front Trac Bar Bracket (came with the RC Kit) which raised the end of the trac bar up about an inch or so.

With this new Lift do I leave the trac bar as is or remove the Bracket and reposition the trac bar back to it's original position on the axle?

Also, the RC bump stops came with a 4" kit. Do I need another set of bump since I'm going down in lift?

I saw at Quadratec these Skyjacker bump stops that say they're for 2.5 - 4" lifts. Is it ok to assume I can just use the RCs.

Thanks.

if all it raised the bar is 1" you will be fine. the bracket with my 2" BDS raised it about 2". you will have to measure the bump stops when you get the lift on, if they are rubber you should be able to cut them down.

I've heard that but I do a lot of highway traveling. I was told by a friend, who knows a thing or two about Jeeps, to keep the front trac and sway bar.
