    I was watching a commercial the other day on some foreign SUV doing the devils revenge in Utah a very fun trail to run.

    I noticed in the disclaimer they disconnected the sway bars I am wondering if the reason for this is to get the wheels to react more independent of each other to improve 4 wheel drive traction. If so would removing them help when I am rock crawling trails like Devils revenge or Rubicon trail?

    I know it will affect street performance.

    Yes it helps off road because it doesn’t try to equalize the front to each other. Rear is bar connected to frame on solid axle so yes it stabilizes but differently to front end. With a lift kit you definitely want them on when street driving. Just unbolt when you get to the trails.

    That is what I was thinking. I will have to make some quick disconnect mounts for them.
