I tried unhooking it offroad after reading everyone say there is no reason to do so. I didn't like it.

There was absolutely no useful gain in flex and it fealt creepy on off camber side hills. I just did it as an experiment, because I like to see things for myself rather than just accept what I read online. But from my experience, there is no real gain from not having it, and there are certainly draw backs.

I will be installing a rear AntiRok when I do the outboard and rear coil correction, but until then the OE rear sway bar will be staying in place (with the height appropriate extended links).

As a matter of fact I broke the rear sway bar while running home made extended links (a little while after my little experiment), and I went out and found a stock take off to replace it with.

My RHD TJ - Savvy equipped... And loving it! - Durty Rok Carolina Offroad

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

That falls.under the old liability issue, if he rolls it the first thing that will happen is you will find yourself in court. I would leave it and.make.him sign a release for.the.modifications performed.as I am sure you do not have insurance or a ASE certification....Jon
