Take it for a drive and see if you can find the pros and cons.

Hopefully I will have everything back together tomorrow and the only thing I'm really worried about is the transmission. It has been grinding and not lettin me get into gears. Drained it today and bleeding tomorrow.

How much street driving does the vehicle do? If its primarily a trail rig then I say leave it off. Two of my buddies pulled their sway bars off and since they get trailered to wherever we go its no big deal.

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.
