That means that I need to make time Friday to rip my rear sway bar off and to re-wire my CB radio into my runner.

Having the rear sway-bar off isn't a must, is it?

Sway bar isn't a necessity just a desire since last run I was three wheeling it occasionally. Putting my CB everything back in is a necessity though.

Never noticed the issue with my sway-bar. I'll have to pay attention to it on Sunday.

I didn't notice it being a huge issue while wheeling last time, but then I saw video of me driving and my rear wheels coming up on obstacles. I know Ty swears by removing the rear sway bar.

If you want help with your Cb let me know as well as your sway bar. I am only available in the morning though. and removing the rear sway bar is a piece of cake. Your rear will just flex better without it and you wont carry tire as much as you would with it. I run NO sway bars front and rear daily. I actually broke one of the mounts on my LCAs when i did my LCA bushings so i cant run them lol. it is 2 nuts and 4 bolts. You really wont notice much difference on the road without it on. the front will control you body roll a lot more than your rear will.

And BTW Jared is also in (talked to him today). Kind of excited for a group run again bounce Also posted the run on Slick Rock Punks, RME, TW, and Utah Tacoma and Toyota (Kevin beat me to posting here Evil or Very Mad )

Wouldn't have it any other way!! Best mod I did, better flex and better ride! LEAVE THE FRONT THOUGH! It would be nice to have some front disconnects but don't remove it. It's scary as hell coming out of the canyon with no front sway bar.

 For sure.  You might wanna park it when we head up Constrictor, but you've already been on Rattlesnake right?

That wasn't an issue, that was just pure skill! Less wheels is harder than more right?

Wait till you guys try wheeling with AWD, you'll never want to go back to traditional 4WD...

I don't recommend removing the front to anyone unless they know how to drive without on and with the extra body roll.

And AWD???? I tried that once and low and behold I high centered on my rear diff and all power was sent to the rear. Tried to engage the CL and yep almost go off it but was literally stuck. So yeah I got stuck on a pebble as my buddies said.

Would you be willing to lend us your compressor so we don't all have to rely on Kevin's to air up after the run?

Sure. If someone wants to stop by the house and grab it, I'll make sure it's easily accessible since we won't be home.

Better yet, I'll give it to Kevin on Saturday and then someone can just drop it by the house on their way home.

If you are free Sunday morning and wanted to come over and help with wiring and getting rid of my sway bar i definitely wont complain, but if not then I will still be ready to go at 1300.


Also has anybody taken their dog along wheeling? I'm debating about bringing mine along since I'll feel bad leaving her alone outside for that long...maybe
