Track Bar and Sway bar removal

Hey guys every thread I have read in here has told me to remove both the track and sway bar to get more flex and better suspension looseness. I have absolutely no clue, where they are, what they do, or how to remove them. If someone could please post pictures and exaplain all of this for me it would be greatly appreciated. I would love to get the better flex and this seems like it is going to be a relatively easy way to do so.

Thanks
TIm

Here's a link to an image og the sway bar on the front, but this one has disconnects on it. I was too lazy to look deeper. Just look for a bar running side to side under the front of your jeep, with links that look like this kinda.

back end is similar, but different

The track bar goes from the axle to the frame, hard to miss. And whatever you do, never run your extended brake lines like the one in that picture.

The other posters are right, the track bars front and rear are easy to spot. It's the only bar that connects the frame to the axle diagonally. The sway bar has solid connectors like the silver thing in the pic above.

Your friends are right, a stock YJ Jeep with those removed/disconnected has a very noticable change in handling- off road, as well as on so just be careful if you go on the street without hooking them up. You will get used to it though, I'm on a sprung over Jeep with 35"s and no sway or track bars hooked up.
