    Matter of fact, If you are thinking about a disconnect kit, I would try driving around without it on and see how it drives. I ditched mine awhile back and don't miss it at all. There is more body roll, but its not bad enough to bother me.

    The truck will drive much better off road without the swaybar btw. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Swaybar keeps the body of the truck from leaning side to side when going around corners on the road. When your off road they cut down on the amount of articulation you can get out of your front end. Discconnect it and you get rid of that.
