only the JKS quick/quicker disconnects run for many years without noise.

I got mine with my lift kit from full traction here is a pic, you can see that the pin moves around and causes the noise.

JeepGuy, if you think that's bad, you should hear my hilift. Everyone thinks something is about to fall of the beast. Turn up your stereo.

RE's second-generation discos have been out several years and are totally quiet. Tera's QDFT like I used to run has always been a quiet disco too. JKS actually copied part of the Tera design for their second generation disco after their first generation disco turned out to be noisy.

Im just getting started with my JK and have a 2" Skyjacker BB and Hydro shocks on my JK and I havnt considered quick disconnects as of yet but aI guess it would help in the long run. I mean I know its not a Monster but would that still increase my travel by a little bit. Like I said just starting NEED LOTS OF TECH INFO definate NEWBIE

So based off your statements we can assume that you do not have the electronic sway bar disconnect on your JK? If not then yes being able to manually disconnect your front sway bar will provide you with greater articulation on uneven terrain.

The Rubicon does but I have an X which to my surprise I found out today does not have a D35 under the rear it has a Next Gen. D44 HD under the rear. I couldnt afford a Rubi (bad credit and all you know a divorce will do that to ya)

Ah, was not sure how the options went on that one. I was surprised to find that there are actually options you can choose on the Rubicon itself. Like the power group etc...

Hmmm, must be one of those 10 bolt cover 44's that we've heard about.

Yea looks like it. Thats why I had all the questions the other day about 35/44 Identification. Finally I just emailed Jeep with the vin # just to make sure cause I thought the X came with 35 rear period. Was shocked to discover the 44

I believe you get a D44 with an "X" if you got the 31" tire option with an auto trx.

I'd go with either JKS or RE Generation II and avoid the rest.
