I ended up pulling my front one off at the FJ Summit when it started contacting my coil over.Garrettsfj said:hey just wondering what the pros and cons of removing my sway bar in the front would be.

Pro's - better flex while offroad
Con's - on road driving is a little more tippy normal driving isn't bad but any sudden or hard turns are very noticeable and a roll over is very likely.
Nope, I asked Dylan and Jason right before and after I took it off to make sure I wasn't over extending anything. Dylan said no problems with the Icon's other set ups might have issues with over extending things.DominicG said:So no limit strap Josh?? I pulled my rear one off already and have been itching to get rid of the front.
No, the way Toyota designed it makes it really hard to modify. Scraping it and doing a full custom job would be the way to do it but the time and money put into it doesn't really make sense for the gains.FJ-Piper said:Cant we just modify the existing or make a new one that would allow for more flex? What's the big deal? I'll have to crawl under and take a peek
Call me crazy but with no sway bar in back the ride is much much better!jeshua said:Nope, I asked Dylan and Jason right before and after I took it off to make sure I wasn't over extending anything. Dylan said no problems with the Icon's other set ups might have issues with over extending things.
I am surprised you pulled the read before the front. The rear has a much more dramatic effect on the on road manners and doesn't really limit flex with what you and I are running. How is the ride after taking the rear off?
I agree, I can get one for my Jeep. I assume it is because the FJ is a fairly new vehicle. I think in time more hardcore aftermarket parts will be available.TrAiLbUs1 said:Tibaal is rocking the fox 2.5's I believe no sway bar up front no limit straps and hits the trails harder than most...no issues so far...I'm going to be taking mine off after watching his in action WOW! amazing .....too bad NO companies have bucked up and made a quick disconnect...I mean seriously they have the technolgies LMAO1
