The jeep body's position relative to the axles depend on the sway bars. Notice in the pic your jeeps body follows whatever the front axle is doing. This is because the front sway bar is harder to twist than the rear. So the rear does all the flexing.

When you disconnect the front sway bar, your jeeps body will follow whatever the rear axle is doing because it is the only sway bar reacting on the body. Now if you put a lighter rate sway bar up front like the Antirock, your sway bars will be closer in the way they behave and your jeeps body will want to stay level while allowing both axles to articulate

Yes, as the axles articulate under you, the Jeep tends to stay more level side to side.

Dextreme My guess is that those photos represent stock flex with swaybar links still attached. If the links were disconnected, the wheel on the rock would be more stuffed into the fender well and the hood would be more level side to side.

Max stock TJ flex?

I bought my Jeep used and I have no idea what the previous owner did. When I bought it it had 31s, still does. I was wondering, would my Jeep flex this much if it was stock? Or has someone put disconnects on it? (Don't really know what those are, but I know it effects flex.
