Just some pics and a question

Well someone posted the other day asking about what a bone stock Wrangler can do. I have a couple pictures of my bone stock '95 YJ.
Here are the tires (worse than stock I believe and fully inflated)





and heres the one I have a question about:

That is like going over a speed bump at angle, yet i had a front wheel and a rear wheel just spinning. realize lockers would help but seems like thats not much flex for even a bone stock YJ.
Still enough to have fun though, even after waiting five minutes every time after driving through a puddle for the engine to stop sputtering. Also, i'm thinking of a snorkel cause i looked and my airfilter was wet and muddy and there was water puudled in the airbox, i dont think that can be good

Well, i followed the link and found them to be 328870 octets (for number 2) which may be a bit too much on this board...

Re: Just some pics and a question

Have you disconnected your sway bar?
Have you removed your track bars?
Have you checked the travel of your shocks?

Re: Just some pics and a question

If you have good quality shocks then I would say take off the sway bar. Since your Jeep is totally stock then I assume it sees a lot of road miles.
A lot of people here will tell you to take the sway bar off compleatly. I took mine off a while ago and I don't see myself ever putting it back on. Not having it really helps you flex off road. If you have good shocks on the front and your springs arnt too soft then you won't notice that much of a difference on the road.
I would NOT take the front track bar off !!
But you may try taking the rear track bar off. Again a lot of people will tell you that it will help the rear flex. When I put the 4in lift on my YJ I had to disconnet the rear axel to get the old springs out, and place the new ones in. I could not for the life of me get to bolt out that holds the Rear track to the axel. So I cut it off. (the whole mount) Took out the track bar. I don't notice any difference on the road.
Steer clear of taking off the front track bar unless you want to be all over the road.
