Yea, that's what I was reading on your FB. It's funny how removing that would make the truck better. It makes since though.

because people like to have a garbage ride on the highway. I've taken them off of my last two trucks and any bump it would go all over the place. this one i haven't taken it out and it drives way better. I can go over bumps without worrying at 80mph where as the last two id have to slow down. the green one wasn't even lifted and it sucked lol. I agree that you get a little more articulation off roading but its not that big of a difference IMO. I just did rock **** this past weekend with my swaybar on and it was fine


I need to get a roof rack to put dumb **** on my roof haha. trucks looking good!

Dont give the guy stupid info, the truck doesn't go anywhere without a sway bar, it just feels like its going to. You learn how to control the truck and drive it. sure it takes more steering input, but it handles much better. Ive had my sway bar off for about 1.5yrs and ill never put it back on. even did a 14 hr each way trip without it, no problem.

and you actually get alot more travel and less jaring over bumps.

its probably a personal prefrence on the sway bar, but i like mine right where it is.. on the side of the house not on the truck haha.

trucks parked for right now.. going broke paying for the fuel for the lil ****. with the fan going at top speed at 3000 rpm its just chugging gas. so today for my long work roadtrip i took grandpa's ride. hope to tear into the truck tomorrow morning and get everything fixed. would do it tonight but i gots me a hot date. carry on.. haha
