Rubicon electronic disconnecting sway bar links question!

Does putting on a new lift stop the electronic disconnecting sway bar function on a rubicon? I'm going to put on a BB that comes with new sway bar links, but I'd think twice about it if I knew that it stopped this function from working correctly!

Thanks so much for all the help guys!

That was one of my questions when I bought my 08, I was glad to find it works just fine. One thing I did do was replace the RE sway bar links with some sealed stainless units from Rodends. I have a 4.5 RE longarm.

As long as the front links are the correct length then you’ll be fine. If they are too short you’ll turn them into pretzels but the motor will still work.

^^^ What he said. As a rough guide I would have links long enough to keep the sway bar just above horizontal at normal ride height. At full suspension droop you dont want the links to get anywhere near in line with the swaybar. With no upward pressure on the sway bar when its disconnected if the links are too short they may allow the swaybar to swing down then continue past the axle and end up pointing straight down - the links will then bend like pretzels as mentioned above.

I love that too. I still have 3 vehicles at my place (2 CJ5's and an F-250) that have manual hubs. Nostalgia!

The funny thing is that there are STILL online "battles" debating the relative merits of the CJ5 vs. the CJ7 !!! Jeeps just never die.

There are even kits for JK/JKUs, to convert the front axle to "WARN MANUAL" hubs--

I think I remember even seeing "faux" locking hubs, simply hub caps made to look like manual hubs! I'll see if I can find them again.
