Because of the TJ's coil spring suspension. Disco'ing the rear antiswaybar helps and is normal for leaf spring Jeeps that are laterally very stable but things go downhill from there with the unstable coil springs. The rear antiswaybar helps reduce the tendency to flop (tip) or roll on extremely steep or offcamber terrain.
Not to mention that disco'ing the TJ's rear antiswaybar does not help increase usable flex/articulation in the least. Disco'ing it gives no benefits like it does on a leaf spring Jeep, it only has handling and offroading-related drawbacks.

|Sdac626||Why aren't you supposed to disconnect the rear swaybar? I've read u aren't supposed to but why?|

|Jerry Bransford||Yep disco'ing the front antiswaybar can help even a stock TJ do significantly better when offroad on uneven terrain. It will allow the axle to flex more easily which can help all four tires stay in better contact with the terrain which of course improves your traction. Leave the rear antiswaybar connected however. And make sure to reconnect the front antiswaybar before getting back on the road.|

Disconnecting sway bars
I know some of you guys disconnect your sway bars when off roading for more articulation. I was wondering if it would be worth it though with a stock lift? I'm thinking it would probably cause more problems with rubbing than it's worth, but i have never done it and was wondering if anybody has.
