We wouldn't want to stress something responsible for keeping your whole truck off the ground would we?!

Swaybar just decreases body roll (decreases chance of rollover), but it also limits suspension travel on these trucks. Most of us that wheel pull 'em for the extra droop.

Suspension may have to work a wee bit harder, but I doubt it'd be enough to make a difference.

It allows things to bend back and forth as in articulation which is a good thing off road, it is one of the many things that are lacking in todays off the showroom floor vehicles.
The only reason we have sway bars now is people drive far beyond their ability and then when they crash they call a lawyer to blame others

I don't mean google. I mean on this site. There are lots of threads with a ton of info to read up on.

I have mine of. At first, driving on the road it seems sketchy. But it's just because your not used to the body roll. I like it because the ride on road and off is more comfortable. More articulation.
