If your jeep has the edisco, supplied-it's REALLY worthit

If you're thinking about adding one to a non-rubi--it ain't worthit !!

Mechanical quick dis-connects are $20 to $100 bucks and you just unbolt the existing swaybar links and lock-pin the new ones in-maybe takes 2/3 minutes to release the swaybar !!

If you were GIVEN a Rubi edisco by a friend/family/girlfriend (bet me), then installing one, might not be a bad idea, but if you wanted to buy one and then WIRE-it in you jeep--$1500 to 2200 bucks plus installation of the edisco gearbox--

A PITA

Kapish ??

i weep for the future generations who will never know the simple pleasures of manually disconnecting swaybars, manual hubs, etc.

The edisco gearbox electrically seperates/rejoins the two piece sway bar--uses a male/female gear "slip-fit"-pretty strong, but sometimes is a little annoying trying to get level enough to RE-JOIN-

Beats going out in the snow to manually dis-connect the sway bar !!, but

Not for the cost of a NEW setup !

Well, it's much better when it isn't broken....... $1700 for parts...... No clue about labor. Be careful out there...
