start by trashing the D-35 axle. A 6" long arm lift would give the most flex, for about $2500. My 4" Full Traction short arm has a good articulation number, they're about $1100. Don't forget to extend the brake lines.

If all you are looking for is the most flex you can get with a stock TJ, then just disconnect the front sway bar and hit the trail.

You mean like this.

Of course that always depends on what your idea of flex is and also the type of terrain you plan on running.

yes you will get a little more body roll in corners and such. i've had mine like that for about 3 years and no problems thus far. just remember, your jeep is not meant to be driven like a sports car!

Thats kinda of a vague question Paul. DO you want to modify it and spend some money on after market parts or just stay stock? Search around and read thru the forums to start learning about Jeeps. THen after you read and start understanding how things work you can make a decision on your own and know what you are getting yourself into.

and if you get quick disconnects then you can disconnect for just the trails and then re connect for the road

Sway bars are overrated.

newbie question i know... how do you exactly disconnect (or can you even) your sway bay on a stock TJ easily? or that just not possible... how much does a quick disconnect run?

i think you can disconnect them wihtout them, but it takes a little while,
i read somewhere how to make your own disconnects but forget the site, and the discos will run about$75, but if you can make ur own discos then you can buy a 1 in. BL lift for that and get 1 in. more of flex!!!!

I agree I very seldom connect mine ever cause I think it handles better without them. THere is a little more body roll but my tires don't come off the ground.
