I was just wondering if the rear track bar is needed on a TJ. I read the post on yj not needing it but i'm not sure about TJ's. I have one on order and it should be here in about three days but i need to drive to work.
So can anyone help me out and answer my question? THanks!!!

But for all of you guys who will read this after...I have been driving with out a rear sway bar for about 8 years now...The only time I had a problem was when I had a spool installed...I am not sure how it would react to a locker.

Swaybar and trackbar are two completely different parts of a suspension and do two completely different jobs.

A trackbar provides the lateral position and stability for the axle. A swaybar keeps the axle parallel with the chassis and prevents body roll in turns.

Yes you need a track bar, I did away with my track bar by switching to a tri-link on my rubicon lift. but for standard suspention it keeps the axle from sliding.
