My concern is this. What happens when you have to dodge somebodies kid who runs out in the road...how's your rig going to react? You're either going to flip the Jeep, or you're going to kill someones child, or both, because you took off a pretty important safety feature.

I say leave it on your rig if it is street driven - disco when wheeling.

A lot is going to depend on how your Jeep is set up. My old XJ on full width axles and 35s with no sway bars and 8" of lift was more stable than my friends with 3" of lift stock axles, sway bars and 31s. It is prob best to run them on the road on any vehicle that came with them though.

I'd say sway bars are a good idea. If you already made some easy disconnects you might as well run them right?
