Yeah I know I can still ride with it but I already put in the quick disconnects on the front and have one side loose on the rear. Some of the trails we are hitting tomorrow are a little tougher than the Ines we are use to and I know it will help with my traction.

Man..after doing all that crap to include busting my knuckle and cutting my thumb trying to get those stupid bolts out....it took 45 seconds to cut the damn thing off. Now time for bed there is mud and trails for the new year!

stock yj's don't have rear sway bars is what he was saying... If you had a sway bar on the rear its not factory. While you have your removal tool out cut the track bars off of it too... front and rear

Well might have used the wrong terminology then....it was the round steel the made the Axel raise up if one wheel was lifted. Guess it was the track bar

Maybe I should remove the front real fast too. What is the benefit of the front removal?

better articulation.. better ride... there is an entire thread on it if you search.. leaf sprung vehicles don't need them at all... they were put on to appease the gods of safety at one time... totally un needed though

Should I be concerned if I have a 4" suspension lift and 1" body? Still OK to remove and not replace?

The FIRST thing you should do to a YJ is remove the front and rear track bars. As noted they don't have a rear sway bar. Track bar removal will improve the ride, especially on rough roads. I left the front sway bar on mine but some remove that too.
If you have a YJ without track bars and love government mandates and want to re-install them, I have a pair for sale for $1500 plus shipping and handling.
