I have these Skyjacker ones and they work just fine for me, don't seem to squeak and they have been on for about 2 years now. They were cheaper than the JKS ones but honestly they don't look as fancy as the Zone disconnects.
I'm building my own lift "kit" and still trying to figure out if the extra coin for JKS links are worth it. I've yet to find 1 complaint about them so ill probably go for it just for the piece of mind.
I actually looked into the jks disconnects before I bought my anti rock but I couldnt justify paying for a pin and a piece of metal that did absolutely nothing once it was disconnected. I also learned about the advantage s of the antirock around the same time by guys on wf and jf and decided I had to check it out myself. It has definitely help to loosen up the vehicle a little on the highway so you dont get beat up by bumps but still have a controlled feel. And offroad it performs even better in that it gives you controlled flex and works more with the rear sway bar to keep you planted on the ground with traction. Anyways if you just want jks disconnects then go for it but I'd definitely look into the antirock or equivalent if you want something different... also the antirock can be adjusted to fit your driving, either on or offroad, needs.
Which zone disconnects did you get? My lift only came with longer sway bar links then I made my own disconnects with clevis pins, washers, and cotter pins.
I had made some like this but the one on the passenger side tore the boot on the tie rod end so I put the regular bolt back in. Does urs get ur boot and if not how do u keep it from doing so

I agree with all the above about the antirock, even though I have JKS. I didn't know the advantages of having it and wish I had known before. Might sell my JKS's to a buddy for 130-150 since I've had them for less than a month, then purchase the curry antirock. That's how bad I want it if that says anything lol

I got rid of my Zone's and went with JKS on sale, plus an additional 10% for being a WF member I say if the disconnects work fine, then why upgrade? Only problem I'm having with my disconnects is I somehow lost both clutch pins on the trail, and now they are zip tied on lol. Other than that, I enjoy disconnecting mine when I've just started doing it less than a month ago.

I have zone disconnects and they are horrible. I am looking at the jks ones but they are $157. Whats your opinion?
Bypass disconnects altogether. They suck. Better option for a vehicle mostly driven off road is the Antirock. Best option would be the ORO swayloc if vehicle does double duty. But of course the Antirock is double the price of JKS disco's and the ORO Swayloc is double the price of the Antirock.
