    I think it would be a nice off road feature to be able to disconnect the swaybars on the powertrain menu so you can get around 30% more in articulation like the real life vehicle DODGE POWERWAGEN

    or there could be an option to disconnect the swaybar like the diffs are unlocked...

    yeah... I guess, but does that sort of thing even exist in cars that are going to do more than a run down an extremely leafy road

    I hope you have a fire extinguisher and a whole factory ready at hand, unless you plan on burning down that whole forest he he he, jokes aside what year is that

    i always have a fire extinguisher in my jeep, as well as a full compliment of tools in the back. my jeep is a 2011 that started off as a sport model, but i changed the transfer case to the 4:1 out of the rubicon and put a set of built dana 60's under her with eaton e lockers in both ends. that picture was with 37" tires, but i recently installed a set of 40" nitto trail grapplers on her.

    this black jeep is my friends 2016 rubicon about 200 ft after the picture of my jeep.



    it doesnt look like it, but to the left of the rock under his back tire is about a 4 foot hole!

    the hopper and d-series would be cool, since the hopper is basically a jeep and the d-series could be up fitted to be the power wagon.

    alright, here it is for the hopper.
    • disconnecting front sway bar
    • disconnecting rear sway bar
    • heavy duty versions of each (just a bit stiffer, like the standard heavy duty sway bars)
    • "adjustable offroad ECU" for each engine type that controls the sway bars. you have to equip this or else the mod won't work right.
    press ctrl+q or whatever your keybind is for changing ESC mode, and it will connect/disconnect the anti-roll bars. they are connected by default, and you should see "drivemode:normal" or "drivemode:eek:ffroad" on the messages UI depending on what mode you're in.

    let me know if anything seems wrong or you have any suggestions for improvements.

    This works really nice. I like it! I second the vote for D/H series (and Roamer).
