    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).

    No problem.

    I already bought a second sway bar to try to do this to

    well, once I get my welder up and running and I get decent at it.

    Are you saying cut a slit in the sway bar so the end could be slid in and bolted? That's a good idea but it would put all the load on the bolts and may not be as tight as this setup. If you notice the plates are angled so the more the bolts are torqued the tighter it is. Also I think the bolts would need to be welded to the back because it would be hard to squeeze a wrench back there. Or maybe I'm not picking up what you are saying.

    I don't think you want to weld bolts on because you are going to get pissed when you strip them.

    Nothing an angle grinder and rewelding can't fix. I don't think it would be possible or practical to hold a wrench behind the sway bar and then wrench the outside bolt.
