THose with a bed camper, sway bar?

Got a new axle to swap in the rear of my 97, and it came with a sway bar on it.

For those with an in-bed camper, have you run without a sway bar? Just deciding on whether I should put it on or not. THanks!

No offroading at all, really. Dirt roads. Just hunting and towing the Jeep into camp.

I have never felt any sway at all, but will be getting a camper for an upcoming race. Never had a camper on there there before.

I tow trailers off road to get to the waters edge it can be hilly

I added a sway bar to my rear , front was OEM
i still have plenty of articulation and cornering around sweeping highway corners is much nicer

if I was doing a camper I would look into airbags as well

For a truly terrible firearm experience I suggest Taurus

this is not a bed camper..does sway at times but does drive fine , on and off road , not sure about the weight between the 2 but a general idea of top load....side note i dont have a rear sway bar at all so the extra spring kinda helps with sway

By far the coolest way to haul 2 cars at once with a small trailer, I wish there was a build thread on how you made that ramp lol

Good info guys. The axle I got wasn't LSD like I asked for, but I'll for sure remove the sway bar when I swap it.

Holy hell, I'd hate to load that buggy if it broke Haha! Got a winch on top?
