My brother-in-law took his off a long time ago. It still handles well but gets a little squirrelly on the highway. For him it takes more concentration and awareness to go more than 55 mph.

I removed mine when I lifted to 4.5".

I thought everybody did?

Rear Swaybar would severly limit any added flex afforded by lift kit?

i have 6" on my xj and dont run swaybars front or rear. if you take off the back, leaf springs are so stiff that it will only take you a day to get the hang of it.

I kept the front (but disconnect anytime off-road). It is wild enough at highway speeds with 4.5" with 32's!

I don't even like short in-between trails highway segments without reconnecting but that's just me! Some people rather live on the WILD SIDE!

Rear sway bars suck!!! Take it off and throw it as far as possible, you'll never look back!!!

mines not bad, it doesn't wander the road or anything like that but you can feel the body lean a little in turns, in my grand its really noticeable without the front, but i still have the rear connected on it
