Newbie to Jeeps, 1st Question

I recently bought a 2001 TJ, that had been traded into the shop I work for. It already has some lift and bigger tires on it.

I got to looking the other day and saw these pegs sticking out of the frame on each side up front. Yet I have no clue what they goto? Any help please.




Thanks, Shane



P.S. heres the Jeep I bought. cause I read elsewhere that you all love pictures, this is all I have so far.

It looks like some thing for the sway bar, may be Quick Disconnect

yes, pin to hold sway bar link up.. pull the pin on the link and then rotate it up onto the chrome pin and then reinsert the pin to hold it in place. I will guess tera flex lift, but could be way wrong.

I agree with 4Jeepn, those stainless studs are for Teraflex's QDFT Quick Disconnect system for the front antiswaybar. When the antiswaybar is disconnected from the axle for offroading, it is lifted up and the lower part of the links are placed over the studs and held in place by a spring steel clip.

Thanks for all your guys help. I was really annoyed by those and not knowing what they were for.

Very beautiful vehicle, I am not for chrome either, as a matter a fact, I will be spray painting the grill, and the chrome around the headlights black (heat resistant, outdoor paint)
So this is what it looks like now:

Actually that's a pretty good disconnect by Teraflex. Very quiet, I've never had any issues with Tera's quick disconnect when I was previously running them.

I believe you can just remove those chrome grill insets, easily.
