Who has their track bars attached?

Does anybody here still drive with their track bars on? I've been reading how its a better ride without them... offroad of course, but I'll be using mine as a daily driver for another couple of months so will it suck on the highway without them?

Mines gone with the trash. I noticed very little difference. 3.5 superlift. Sway bar is gone too. Again, almost no difference except better flex.

I took mine off. When I took swaybar off it was way better ride. Bumps were smoother on highway and around town. Then I mad mistake of SHACKLE LIFT and took rear trac bar off. OH GOODNESS I almost die every time I drive it. But its because the shackle lift not trac or sway bars. so go without them if no shackle lift. if you have shackle lift it's fine without swaybar but definately need the tracs. I am installing Old Man Emu lift springs this weekend and doing away with shackle lift. Will post how she rides with that

OK Thanks. I bought the Jeep with a huge shackle lift and a 3 inch body lift. I only bought it because it was a good price and the engine was so sound. I'm leaving for sea for about 5 weeks and when I get home I'm thinking of going SOA so I'll definitely be taking those track bars off. Steering with the shackle lift is a damn nightmare. ha.
Also, I was looking at some coilover conversions for the YJ and they were like 5k! Thats alot of loot. I can get new axles with lockers all around and a nice SOA for that and still have cash to put into the new engine swap.

My rear track bar is off, the front on is on cause its my DD and I don't feel like having the axle move around by it self and cause me to crash, but thats just me I'll take it off if I ever get a 4 link front coil over kit

Ha! I'm more on the Dublin side of SR... not the rich side. I know what what your saying though . I see the same thing, guys that buy a jeep, give some shop 50k and tell them to make it sick then it never even sees a trail, mud pit or rock. Mine is definitely not nice and shiny. Its green and beat to shit with a worthless lift. Once I get back from the gulf I'm going swap my rear axle with a D44 and redo the lift as a first order of business... Second will be taking The track bars off.

haha. Will do man. My shop is in Richmond so I'm there everyday when I'm home. I leave on Thurs and should be back around mid July for a month or two until I go back again so I'll be rebuilding it part by part as I'm home. This oil spill down there might end up financing my whole rebuild.... not that I'm happy about the spill.

I just took off both the front and rear track bars from my 1991 YJ. I cannot tell any difference in the way that it drives. I will be installing 4 new shocks this weekend. I am in NW Arkansas and the roads are curvy so I am leaving on the sway bar.

Update on last reply

I have the 2.5" OME Leafs Installed now and put stock shackles back on and got rid of that DARN AWFUL 2" Shackle lift. Of course the old man emu springs are better than stock ride leaf springs anyways. The handling and ride is 10 times better. And thats with the rear trac off and sway bar. Even with the 3" body lift there is hardly any body roll now. So screw some tracs and sways haha. Thats just added weight. like 60 pounds

This was a topic in JP Magazines 10 things wrong with your YJ. They suggested removing the track bars as well.
