    You don't have to weld. Just cut. Yes, it might be slightly stronger if yo weld. But I didn't and I have had no problems what so ever. I don't rock crawl or jump it though. Just daily and some trails

    I think I saw one that wasn't welded together in some one elses build thread. But i still might weld it anyway.

    :scratch: Hello everyone,

    After installing my 2 "lift I asked whether I could completely remove the rear swaybar to improve articulation (wheel travel). for use on normal road every day.
    this is possible or not. this is risk to my safety

    Thank you very much for your advices

    ditch the rear sway altogether and get some quick disconnects for the front

    Looks like this thread is dead but i thought i would ask anyway! Were the rear F150 Springs the same length bolt to bolt as the explorer or did you have to move a spring hanger?

    @ Spicycook

    You also might want to look at ditching those Goodyear Wranglers. Those things are about the worst made tire in existence and are absolutely awful on anything other than absolutely dry pavement. Any other tire would be better, not joking.

    I had a set on my 94 and in a light rain I slid around like crazy!
