Did you buy the jeep used? Do you have front sway bar disconnects?

I was going to ask, is that the strap that holds them when disconnected?

Looks like the limit strap that goes on a 12 when you have a Mopar lift kit.

I hope to god thats not a limit strap. That thing would break quick when disconnected. Why dont you just figure out what it does. Shouldnt be that hard. Follow it around and see what its connected to.

I'm curious just how many people are going to go check their Jeep for this strap now "just in case" lol.

It is for the sway bar disconnect. I had a bds lift kit installed with disconnecting sway bars and they installed that strap on mine too.

Just had a BDS lift installed, so maybe they put it in. It's auto disconnect though so totally useless.

If you don't reconnect that strap to your tie rod, you could lose your whole front end. Just sayin'.
