hi all
as the title states im new to this world. i have raced usmts dirt modifieds for the last 20 years but now that the kids are getting a little older ive decided to try something different that we can all enjoy together. so ive bought a 95 zj limited with a 5.2. this will be strictly a trail rig with no street use. it will not be insured or registered. ive never done this before and since i have a ohv park about 5 miles from my house i figured i would give it a try. my first main ? is. should i get rid of the front and rear anti roll bars since it wont be on the street? im not trying to do anything big but want to have a good time

Welcome!

Yes, I would pull the sway bars. They are actually designed to limit articulation which you don't really want or need on the highway but comes in handy off road. I would also confirm that your brake lines are long enough to handle the additional articulation. Don't want to find that one out the hard way. Got any pictures of what you're starting out with?
