You have, by far, my most favorite truck on here. Keep it up!

first time you swerve to miss the asshat in the Civic you'll be testing the durability of those KC's... My advice to you is either roof rack wheels or setting up a quick disconnect for your sway bar.

I saw the ice/snow pictures first and said "Wait... this thread's OLD", then the others loaded lol. Looks like you have some more freedom of movement now.

For some reason i cant see the pics, but I run with front disco'ed all the time. I ran half the winter diso'ed whiel getting quick diso's made and had ZERO issues. I tried reconnecting my fronts and could not stand it. Feels like underwear 2 sizes to small. I love the disco freedom. I do run the rear connected except for every once in awhile offroad, but with my rear set up it flexs almost as good connected plus disco'ed my rear coils will get loose due to the length of the shocks. Got some spacers coming to fix that though.

the rear sway bar on the s10's barely make a difference in handling. it does give the axle more freedom. in the front it makes a huge difference off road and a noticeable one on the road. my tires rub again in the front again... I'll have to trim a little more
