    What are the pros and cons of removing the swaybar? I know better flex off road but what about a truck driven on road to get offroad? see sig!!!!

    Take it off and drive for one week. If you feel any need to put it back on, go right ahead and do so.

    I've yet to tell this to a single person and have them put it back on.

    with 8" of suspension lift I imagine the ride is pretty stiff so you shouldnt really need the sway bar, I have rough country suspension and it is very stiff, when I took off my sway bar I never looked back /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    With an 8" lift its not even working right anyways. Once you lift the truck at all the sway bar just causes bind when your suspension moves. Ditch it, and never look back /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
