front sway bar...need help deciding!

I need help deciding. I was thinking about taking off my front sway bar. I know it gives you better flex on the trail but is it worth it??? I have 5100's up front set at 1.75". please let me now what you think.

I have had mine off for bout 3 weeks and have no issues. I have no
plans on putting it back on either. I have the billies too.

You can get it off without removing your front armor, but you will need to remove the front wheels.

Use it as a parts bumper for his current one?

Man I'm so jazzed to get all my stuff from him but apparently I'm going to be waiting most of 2011.
