Take em' off, and see how it feels. If you think it needs em', leave em' on. If not, just rip them out.

There's more than a few threads on here about this subject, but take them off. All they do is bind your suspension when it cycles. Leaf sprung vehicles were never meant to have track bars.

Most lifts on the YJ call for removal of the rear. Still running the front and the sway bar. Like the road manners of having them.

Get rid of the front and rear track bars. You won't notice a difference. As for the front sway bar, I have quick disconnects, so I kept it, but I'm no sure it makes much difference. I am running SOA with a total of 6" lift and 35s.

I was gonna run just that no trackbars and quick disconect sway links but i bought junk ones with a pin pullout instead of tightening down or unscrewing a nut. So i took that out too

Shouldn't really notice a difference with or without disconnects, unless you try to take an off ramp at 40mph. I drive without them frequently, because I can't be bothered to put them back when I cone off the trails.
