so a couple weeks i broke my quike disconect wheeling, i had it zip tied to the sway bar but it managed to break loose and get smashed by a rock snapping it into pieces. i have been driving around with one side connected. it was making alot of noise so i just decided to take it out.
its very easy to take out just take the 4 bolts out from the plastic cover with the jeep logo on it then there are 2 bolts on each bushing. after these 8 bolts are out just lift the sway bar out and replace the plastic cover thats it. should take about 10 mins. i replaced the 4 bushing bolts back into the frame so things would fall into the holes.

sorry i didt get any pics of actually taking it out it was freezing this morning but heres the sway bar in dorm.

today my soft 8's and mtr's came in only problem i could only get the mtr's at my buddies tire place in michigan. im in colorado for school. so it looks like ill be skipping class to take a 20 hour ride back home to pick um up some weekend. it will be worth it to get rid of the 31's.
