    Yeah...without the swaybar youll be quite a bit more capable. Im running BDS lift springs up front and I dont really like driving down the road with the swaybar disconnected....the extra sway is very noticeable. Thats why I have the ord disconnects so I can just disconnect them at the trail. Sometimes I forget, but am reminded quickly when I get a tire off the ground. Anyways...youll be more capable without it.

    Steve, if you're not sure, lets take it off when you get there. You won't drive fast enough to start swaying there at URE. That way, you're driving on the road with what you know.

    If you take it off, don't forget to put the bolts back in there. There's some braces that are tied into that mount.

    I don't have them in mine, but my truck is a piece of **** anyways, so I don't care. :haha:
