Fa310tx If anyone has upgraded their sway bars and wants to sell their stocks, I might be interested in buying.
Hehehe...

I drive it, about every day, to work.
Now, it's possible that I'll trade it for something a little more sensible (it has 36" mud tires and a 6" lift), but I'm in no way afraid of it.
I don't know much about Jeeps (or off-roading, in general), but I am learning.

Not reactionary at all, just getting your attention.. The possibility of a roll over is extraordinarily high, especially with the combo of permanent locked rear and no sway bars connected. just bind it up once, around a corner, and you'll go over.... The very first time you take that locked rear out on wet pavement, you will not be able to keep it on the road... Not opinion, just physics...

Fa310tx Is there much of a difference between the Currie, Teraflex, and Skyjacker sway bar kits?
They look like they do pretty much the same thing, to me (and install similarly).
If I could find a used factory bar, I might go that way, but $200 for the bar and $100 for links, makes the kits seem pretty logical.
Are the aluminum ones better?
I figure aluminum would be more prone to bend.

Hardermods Yeah those are bolt holes where the swaybar mounts an bushings would be

I'm guessing that's another no-go.
Are those bolt-holes where it would be attached to?

I'm guessing that the sway bar isn't there.
Where would I find the rear sway bar (I think it's safe to say that probably isn't there, either).

I have full-time lockers on the rear and I pulling out of a parking lot is a constant gas/clutch/gas affair (lean/level/lean).

Am I missing a part?

I was reading a little about sway bar disconnects and it almost looks like I'm missing that disconnectable bar.
I'm referring to the little bit sticking up that doesn't have anything attached to it.
Grant that I know next to nothing about this stuff (bought the Jeep this way about a month ago).
And, since I know so little, if something looks out of place, please let me know.
JJ
