Hi athena I'm pretty knew and had a few questions. I see on your build you took of both front and back sway bars and found info on the reason for taking the back off but nothing telling me why you took the front off. Does it drive ok with them both off?

thanks guys. Wixo to answer your question, taking out both front and rear sway bars allow you that much more flex without getting "tippy". There's pro's and con's to doing this. The ride isn't bad, you get use to it, but it'll shoot your shocks to sh!t after awhile, especially for me because I live in the mountains and live on very windy roads.

Just wondering....I have removed my front sway bar for some time now I really don't see to much difference other than a little more body roll if I corner sharply.Have you had any issues with binding CV's are boots on your front shafts...I wonder if I should install one now as I have broke both left and right sides and I don't want the sway bar no longer. I was gonna remove the rear sooner or later but I need to figure something for the front first. I like the addional droop and travel up front but when I get into that bad situation. With the wheel clocked left or right and the side with the suspension unloaded I get terrible binding :mecry: Do you use a limiting strap?

Punishment, this was definitely a winch situation :lol: we went to Area BFE in Moab on our last day of Cruise Moab. Went up a trail we thought was Strike Ravine but ended up on Green Day trail, which turned into Minor Thread, then at the end where this photo was taken and this was the decend of Helldorado! Pure buggy trail, but we made it through!
