I have QD on my 99 TJ and they're great for hitting bumbs and offroading. I'm sure they sell the just Google jeep aftermarkets or go to xtremeterrain.com

I'll save you the time of searching. Get JKS quicker disconnects. They come in different lengths to accommodate different lifts. Get the ones that match how much lift you have.

creepycrawler, The JKS sway bar disconnects are one of the better quick disconnect kits made for a JK. As a OEM replacement of the stock end links, the install is a simple one. Will make for a real nice upgrade over the factory end links.

Down the road if you ever want to add a lift you can adjust the links to a longer length for a bigger lift. I have them on my JK and it saves a ton of before hitting the trail.

Hit us up if you have any questions We'd love to help out!

Whether its JKS or any other aftermarket link, they function the same as oem links while connected. It's the ease of disconnecting/reconnecting that is the added gain. Of course aftermarket link are likely to be better made than oem.

The Antirock system is what will handle different on the road that you have to be more careful with.

I read that the jk rubicon's have an electronic sway bar disco you control from inside. Pretty cool IMO.

You'll be happy with it. Slightly more body roll on the asphalt vs. the OEM swaybar but the performance you get off road, especially on extreme off camber scenarios - is definitely worth it .

I'd had my share of pucker moments when I used to run disconnected, but when I upgraded to an off road specif swaybar, I was amazed at how much control I got back from my suspension. The Jeep still articulates well (see pic below), I just don't see any drawbacks to an AntiRock, despite the slight corner rolls on asphalt.
