New to Jeeps

Bought my first Jeep this week, its a 92 with the 6 cylinder. Don't know if I'll be doing much off roading yet but who knows. I've been doing some reading in here and it looks like the majority says the track bars are unnecessary. Is this true? Anyone got any good pros and cons on this issue? Any other things I should be checking out? I already replaced the tires and shocks, the dude who had it before made his own bushings for the shocks out of raidaitor hose So who knows what else is hanging on by a thread. Anyways,,, all in all a pretty cool truck/car/allpurposevehicle.

Check for Rust....all over the place. Pull up the carpets, check the body mounts, check every nook and cranny and replace/repair what you can.

Already did that, from what I know from Carfax the Jeep came from Texas and the only rust besides some of the chrome bolts from the bolt on catalog is a spot on the body where he hit something. Under the carpet looks great as well as the under carrage. I like the fact that the interior is all open so the rust cant hide very well. Thanks for the heads up.

Sounds pretty sweet. I got rid of both trac bars and I love it. I was hesitent about the sway bars, but I'm never gonna put them back on since I took them off last weekend. Start with the rear (It might take a while) and see what you think. Then go to the front trac bar if you like. Then you could go all the way if you like and remove the sway bars. Happy Jeepin.
