Currie ANTIROCK® SWAY BARS Question

I am planning on installing a currie lift next month. The lift comes with their Antirock sway bars which Currie says don't need disconnecting when crawling.

I have a '12 Rubicon with the eDisco. Since the eDisco is a pretty slick gadget already, I am wondering if I should keep it. Are there any advantages to replacing it with the Currie bits or disadvantages with not? I think all I would need to retain the stock sway bar would be links.

If I do replace the stock sway, do I need to worry about CELs or any other warning lights?

Lastly, if I do remove it, how much do I need to take out regarding wiring for resale? Do all Jeeps have most of the wires or do I need to remove everything associated with it.

From their site....

CAUTION: Jeeps will have more body roll than stock. This sway bar may be used on the street, however, it will not provide the same handling characteristics as the stock setup.
No thanks, unless your rig is offroad only. I'd keep the rubicon setup.

I have the Antirock on my 2009 with a 5" Lift and 37s. The Anti-rock is a completely better system than stock. You never have to disconnect, even tho all you have to do is push a button. I have come to notice a little more body roll, but nothing dangerous. As long as your not taking through any canyons drifting it you will be just fine. It also puts less stress on you axles.

I have the AntiRock in the back because it is a larger diameter swaybar than stock. It provides more stability and less body lean. I kept my Rubicon E-Disco up front because it is easy to disconnect and when connected for on road driving, it is more stable with less body roll than the front AntiRock because it has a larger diameter swaybar.

yea, site says more roll than stock, but not excessive roll or dangerous roll. I can live with that. Only time its on the road is to drive to off-road sites, and that is mostly freeway. When I'm in the mountains I don't drive it fast through the curves anyway, its not like my old 350Z.

I would guess that even with the antirock sways, this Jeep has less roll than cars from the 70s. I survived them, I'll survive this.

If I could afford it, I'd happily put the anti-rocks on my DD jku. These JKs handle better than a lot of large modern cars, a little body roll won't even be noticeable.

Now... would I replace rubicon ediscos? No... That seems a little redundant. I'd spend the money on something else.
