hooray for JKS Quicker Disconnects!

I bougt a set of 0"-3" anti-swaybar quick disconnects from Krawl offroad. I finally got around to putting them on.

We took a lap on my acreage beforehand to feel the normal bumps, ruts, dips and such. Then we put on the disconnects, and ran the same trail without.

WOW! Some might think it was a waste of $150... I say it inexpensively made the ride substantially smoother offroad, and added even more versatility to a great machine.

Note: it was no minor difference... it was physcally (and audibly with stuff inside the Jeep) smoother.

I have the stock suspension, so these worked great at the shortest setting.

I'm surprised no one else chimed in- I'm truly amazed at the difference this made, especially on washboards and ruts. For those with DD's who want that little bit extra, this and the Rubi wheels/tires really did the trick. You will need a grease gun for the zerks, though.

Glad you like em. They are definitely on my radar. If the lift kit I decide to go with doesn't come with their own quick discos, I'll mostly likely pick these up too!

XPADREX, Post a pic of the finished product connected & disconnected. I would love to see how the setup looks installed, not just the parts on a pamphlet or ebay.

Hold that thought- there's not much good looking articulation on my back 40 mud run... but I'll shortly be in an area (next week) with some good visual ops.

You'd get the same results by unbolting the stock sway bar links......

And better results when using a Currie AntiRock.

Duh. I'm saying that spending $150 in order to remove the front sway bar links is silly. You can unbolt the stock sway bar links in a couple minutes and achieve the exact same results. It's much smarter to put that $150 towards a sway bar upgrade that will benefit you in every category off the road, not just one.

If you were to disconnect the stock front sway bar links, would you just unbolt them from the axle and then bungee/ziptie the sway bar and links up, or would you unbolt the links completely?

unbolt completely. its the only safest way.

never a good idea to just unbolt one. i did this for a year and just tied it up without issues. but not recommended.

This is spot on.

While I love the jks quick dicos and they are beefy and high quality looking, would a set of cheaper discos such as Rough Country work for awhile?

If saving a few bucks is important and fit, form and function is not, then yes they will work.

The JKS quick discos will be the next mod I do. The next on an ever growing list.

One night in the Moab Sleep Inn this past week (we stayed three nights before moving on) cost me as much as the JKS quick discos. Spend your money the way you want, but for me... the ability to pull em off quick and then back on for the ride home on multiple occasions made the money worth while. In my case, I would have been holding up the group.

I will admit... I became a little jealous of my bud's Rubicon electronic jobby... but that's just because I tend to overgrease my discos.
