Definitely takes some getting use to, but once mine was off and I went offroading, never though about it again! It CAN feel hairy taking offramps at 75, but at the same time it feels good feeling the body roll and not actually rolling the truck. When it all straightens back up and u feel it go back into place, it's like, "O fuck that was tight." I can only imagine how it looks from outside the vehicle- awesome I bet. You can always put it back on, RayJay, just takes a few bolts and an extra helping hand if anything. I bet you'll love it after you're first week.

LOL I'm still finding the sig hilarious. So much going on right there: you've got Matt and Will watching the extraction, dirt kicking up in the air, the ford being pulled, me running like a bitch. O man, that's good stuff.

Probably want to read this thread before deciding:

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...-bar-back.html

The essential essence of the question is: do you have a daily/regularly street driven truck that you also take on some pretty tough trails? (leave it on) or do you have a trail truck that you sometimes drive on the street? (take it off.)

Funnily enough, I personally don't seek to modify my truck in ways that make it so that freeway offramps become an "O fuck, that was tight!" moment.

Not bashing on you man; your truck, your life, your decisions.

it really boils down to how you drive on the street and how good of a driver you are. the offroad benifits are great, but on road you will feel like your driving a yacht around town. the body lean is pretty bad even in my books plus im a bit of an agressive drive since i live in atlanta. i have ahd mine of for nearly half a year now. i will say that if you park your truck on an uneven surface daily it could cause your front springs to sag. yes this is all from personal experence of mine. if you have any questions just ask and ill answer as best i can.

i guess if you have a spacer lift or stock shocks the lean is really bad.

i have billies and eibachs, it doesnt really lean too bad in the corners at all... i would feel conforable going from freeway to freeway (onramp) at 90 without a swap bar.

everyone i know that has their sway bar off loves it besides the people that have spacer lifts
