Hi, My samurai is still bone stock with stock size street tires. today I decided to do a little test; put a jack under the the spring pirch on left front and jacked it up until a tire lifted. I measured the height of the bumper off the ground, then tried it again with the sway bar removed and gained maybe 1/8 and inch of flex. What is up with that? does it even do anything?
I went 4x4ing today and almost rolled for my first time. pretty nutty. I was stradling a chasm and on my left side the wall was almost verticle. the front tire made it ok, but the back tire slipped into the chasm (about 3 feet deep). my front right tire was probably 3 feet off the ground and I was at maybe a 60* angle stuck there. I managed to back out after getting my buddy to push down on that lifted tire. The only damage was a bent exaust pipe that I bended back. BFG touring t/a (kinda sporty street tires) don't have much sidewall traction I guess.
