Before investing money in disconnects, just take the swaybar off down by the axle (two bolts), and zip tie/bailing wire it out of the way for a day or three. That way, you'll be able to tell how your vehicle behaves without it. I have a Detroit in the rear, and run without trackbars or swaybar. In my case, they were both completely useless. The trackbar is always useless, but your mileage may vary with the swaybar.
In the picture you have posted it sure looks like your shocks are at full travel. It surprises me that Nobody caught that. After you un hook and remove everything everybody has suggested your still limited to the amount of travel in your shock. I would suggest in buying front and rear extensions and or hoops. I use the m.o.r.e shock extension in the rear and m.o.r.e. hoops in the front with bilstein extended travel shocks. You will notice a huge improvement in your articulation once you address that. also the black yj has no shocks what so ever so his flex is BS not to mention he is about to snap his brake lines.
looking at the picture you still have stock sway bar links which are curved or bent like that from the factory. I am a firm believer is safe driving. Keep your sway-bar and just buy a nice set of disconnects. Track bar is up to you some like it some don't but they also make a quick disconnect track bar and a telescoping track bar. JKS make some nice stuff take a look at it.
I've noticed my shocks look fully extended and didn't think they should be. I need to figure out the measurements and buy the correct ones and also some that have a smother ride, I'm not a fan of the Rancho. Not a smooth ride
The pass front line is getting tight however it IS NOT taught. I am measuring for shocks as well as installing front hoops to complement the rear shock bar. To call my pics BS is a little extreme. I was simply showing what is capable from a yj.

I know the norm is to remove the front track bar and sway bars. I have the RE XD 4.5" kit and without the sway bars and front track bar the Jeep is dangerous e at highway speeds. Although I have a,trailer for my Jeep, I drive it as long as the trail is w/in 2 hrs from my house. The combination of raising the center of gravity, flexy tires and an Aussie in the rear makes driving interesting. I have sway bar discos and I made a track bar disconnect too. My point is that only you know if your Jeep is safe not somebody analyzing your jeep over the Internet.
