Check before you leave, but you should be able to disconnect the sway bar manually with a t55 torx head bit (with socket wrench) and a crescent of box wrench. I did this on my first jeep and either zip tied, or used a tow strap/string/cord to secure the sway bar and linkage up and pointed towards the front of the vehicle. I would suggest he do so. With no lockers, the additional traction and articulation will definitely ease your day.

Note: detach the sway bar linkage from the axle end. Takes about 5 minutes for the whole process....

I'm thinking I may run this in conjunction with eagle rock on Sunday. What tires are you guys running and disco the sway bar would be a requirement for that trail

What happens to Saran Wrap that requires lockers now? Did the flooding mess up the trails?

If you don't Need Lockers then it's a road... And I sure hope the floods "messed up" Saran Wrap and Eagle Rock ...

I'm thinking Illinois gulch, Moab hill is a super fun obstacle with good rock and multiple lines in it, each line is harder than anything on eagle rock, but I will say Saran Wrap is so dug out it is really good right now

I guess it's been a while and things have changed. I ran Moab hill with 307 gears open and 33's and did all but one line if I remember right.
So I guess I'll have to meet you there and try it again.
