Removing the antisway bar can give more flex, but it's not recommended either.
the only thing going to my axles are the leaf spring and steering arm!!

YJs are not link suspension. Link = coil springs = needs trackbars in stock form. Depending on the longarm setup, the rear may not need it in a coil sprung setup.

If I remember the story correctly, they did it on an otherwise stock TJ.

It may have been in 4WDOR instead of JP.

Interesting - I'd like to see how they did it.

There's all kinds of crap out there... we found a skeleton of some kind of cow (we think) up in Rosamond just the other side of the mountain behind Willow Springs Raceway. There are also some mine shafts up there.

Found a couple of cars up in that area too (used to live in Tehachapi)...

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

oh! i have stories!
1.) before i even had my jeep me and friends would go to this trail where there are caves. some guy lives in one of them, and he is actually really funny. in a crazy hobo kind of way. lol. so anyways, we go up to these caves to scare a friend of ours. we are in a 96 nissan w/2wd and bald tires. so we are driving in the dead of night and find this little boy. we think he is hurt so my friend stops. i roll down the window and ask him if he is okay. that is when he does like a grudge like head roll and says "hehehehehehe.... im f___ing insane... and you will join me...." so the kid turns towards the truck and thats when we see the machete he is holding. so we booked it out of there right quick.
2.)we were on a wheeling trip near... well... i have no idea where we were. we got split from the group while we were filling up on gas. so we wonder around and finally find what we thought was the trail. long story short, about 2 miles into the trail a white xj with police lights pulls right in front of us out of no where and ford f250s surround us on the left, right, and behind. they also had police lights. so some old man in olive drab steps out of the cherokee and walks up to the door. he kindly asks us if we know that this is private property. no sir. we had no idea. we will leave if we arent allowed to be here. he smiles sarcastically and says "yeah that might be good." he starts to walk back to his xj and thats when i notice that he puts his beretta back into his holster. didnt even notice he pulled it out. so we high tail it out of there. the guy was really funny though. he had the olive drab uniform with all the military patches and big aviator glasses. i thought olive drab got replaced back in the 80's. to this day we dont know if it was a military base or what. cause we have no idea where we were.

good times.

I don't blame people for their mistakes, but I do expect they pay for them.
