The TTB didn't flex a whole lot I still had stock shocks in it but I had longer ones in the back and that helped alot but I'm sure mine being a pick up has alot more frame flex than a bronco so it's hard to say if you will get the same. Oh ya the sway bars, the truck doesn't handle to bad (exept for the spool and 16" wide boggers)with out sway bars I drive it all the time and full of camping crap so it not bad, and I think other than toasting a wheel bearing and bust one ujoint thats about it for a year of shit kicking:D

yea i just got a 89 bronco and now im going to trim the fenders and take out the sway bars throw on some 35's and go play, I used to have a 77 ford regular cab long box and when i got the bronco i was impressed with its capability in stock trim because of the shorter wheel base so it should be pretty good with some tires on it [36][36][36][36][36]

My bronco was much gooder on the trails without the sway bars.
Flexed better within the limitations of the stock TTB and still rode not bad on the highway.
