TJ Sway bar disconnects

Do you need to unbolt the sway bars each time you go wheeling? I've seen a jeep that had the bolts replaced with pins held in with cotter pins. Anybody think this is a good idea? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

You dont NEED to unbolt... but it does help. The cotter pin thing works great.

Disconnecting the sway bar will help with your articulation. The better your articulation the more tires you will be able to keep on the ground. The more tires you keep on the ground the better traction your Jeep will get the picture.

cotter pin works better than the "quick" disconnects.. notice these are the "quick" disconnects, but I use the cotter pin because its SOOOOO much easier... it was only $6 for the parts at the local hardware joint

I have a hitch pin with two washers one each side held in by a large cotter pin works great I keep a bungee cord handy to tie my swaybars up.
