Thanks for confirming. So that leaves three options-completely on, completely off, or some contraption like the one Chris posted.

If you have quality aftermarket coil overs, I'd just remove it.

Yeah I may remove when I go to the stiffer OME springs with the bumper and skid I have now it is starting to get a bit too soft so when I add the winch and the next twp skids it will need the 886 springs.
I will miss it as well cuz I like the corners on the street too!!

I have a number of friends that have removed them (and most all of them have 2.5 coilovers). I still get everywhere they get but I still think it's funny as they sway through the mountain roads when we're going to the trail.

I honestly don't notice that much sway with it off - but I DO notice that my tires are in contact with the ground more over rough terrain.

Since Chris didn't post his source, here you go

The guy who designed this CANNOT be contacted, has completely given up building them, and I think he even has a patent so you can't build it either without some legal hoops... but that may have been just a rumor. It's just totally baffled me that someone like ARB or similar company hasn't bothered with doing something like this. It's baffled me more that a big company didn't buy the design, either, like with the story of the Bandi mount

I haven't totally thought through my transition, but basic idea:

Light Racing UCA's $450
Some cheap aluminum wheels $550
BFG AT 285's $764

That's a price tag of $1,764 without a spare tire . Later I will probably add some MT's on steels, adding $890.

Save money, buy final solution first.

Watch BST forum on here for good deals on shit you're going to tear up (example: I traded for my wheels for free).
