|beardown||is anything stock made with leads and without track bars?|

|Ibuildembig||Actually it doesnt limit travel enough to matter, and it does make them drive better. Historically there are alot of vehicle with trackbars and leafs.|

|beardown||why did they put the track bars on yjs anyway?|

Along with keeping the axle laterally constrained, the front track bar provides the leverage necessary to turn the tires. Without it, the frame will just shift sideways over the axle but the tires won't turn. Additionally, the track bar defines the roll center height which describes how the front end will respond when cornering.
AKA--if you don't have leafs, it's absolutely critical.

|beardown||I would keep them on anything but a yj though|

|beardown||they do nothing in yj other thn cut down (a little) on articulation!!, the leafs in yjs do the job of frame to axl|

You have both front and rear track bars. They keep the axles centered under the Jeep. TJ's do not have leaf springs to help with that.
Front runs from driver's side frame to passenger side of axle. Rear is the opposite.
