Stock TJ Track Bar Removal?

I am wondering if its okay to run my stock TJ (daily driver) without a rear and/or front track bar?

All I can find information on is for lift kit installation and heavy off-road use.

Any and all thoughts are much appreciated!

X3, the last thing you want to remove on a TJ would be its track bars. It'd be bad enough to remove the rear, but removing the front track bar would mean you couldn't steer... the steering would instead move the axle side to side if the track bar wasn't there to prevent that from happening.

And for the same reason the track bar is required, because of the TJ's coil spring suspension, it's not a good idea to remove the antiswaybars either.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Yup, you'll need both track bars with a TJ's coil spring suspension. The YJ guys can remove their track bars because of the leaf spring suspension, which is able to stabilize the axle under the Jeep without them.

Maybe he meant sway bars...

"track bars" must have been a typo/mistake...

Thanks everyone. I went back and noticed the info I was reading previously was for YJ's (leaf springs)...makes a lot more sense now.
