No but I have the same question... I'm building a dodge dana to swap into mind, and was wondering if I need to build a sway bar set-up with it....?

Ran mine long time without, flexed better, couldnt really tell any differance, I have seen a lot of lifted trucks without them. I think if you pulled an E-Brake slide on the highway, or rollover type situation it would come into play and maybe help prevent a rollover, but with a lifted truck you probably just flop over anyway. I may remove mine again, does allow more flex

Jet you have 8" lift? You ever have any issues pulling that 5er? How'd you truck pull without the sway bar up front?

dont think i ever towed without the front one, i dont have a rear, drove plenty without the front on, just did not not tow, im sure it would of been fine. Unloaded my truck leaned more in corners, but i have dual rate coils, only riding on a 275lb spring rate untill the first lock out so my trucks leans a lot in corners anyway. The sway bar keeps it from doing that, I didnt mind the lean though, and it definitely flexed easier without.
