I have ridden in several Jeeps that have it, but its way down my list of other needs. In the locked position the sway bar is stiffer then stock. So you get less body roll and sway in a corner. It makes the Jeep road manners a little better. Over all i liked it better then stock and my JKS disconnects. Off road its like a anti rock but better. The only 2 versions of this that are any good is the Full traction and the ORO Sway Loc http://www.offroadonly.com/products/...sr/index.shtml . Stay away from the teraflex version off it. They made a copy of the design and in true teraflex fashion the didn't even bother making a good one .

nic he one you posted is 500, you might as well spend another 100 to not have to get out of your jeep. IMO.. according to my wallet, they are both expensive.. like scoob said, its way down on my list. i'll get it when I do my stage 3 build, which is never.
The Currie AntiRock is about the most cost effective way to not have to muck with the sway bars. It's not going to provide the best ride on road but if you don't drive like a teenager with his first vehicle you won't have a problem.
I asked about it because one of the guys in my Jeep club has been running it on his for a little over a year now and he said "your stock sway bar is a 10 on road as far as stability goes... the AntiRock is gonig to be about a 5". So if you don't try to slalom your Heep every chance you get that may be an option. It's not going to be as stable as the Sway Lock or some of the other more expensive copies but is just another option.
Personally, I'm gonig to stick with the discos while it's still a daily driver. While the Jeep is still on road more than off I'm going to keep a regular sway bar I think.
Unless someone want's to donate a Sway Lock to me.

my tj is a DD and i need a good on road handling. and we donīt have sped limits. sometimes i like to drive with 100 mph on our "autobahn". and yes, after regearing my tj still does 105 mph with the 35s...
with the stock sway bar and jks disconnects the body roll is acceptable at higher speeds but it could be better. thatīs why iīm looking for a stronger swaybar. the rok-n-lok would be an option.
but this is only a wish and not on top of my to-do-list.
The SwayLoc gives you the best road manners/offroad manners all in one. From stiffer than a stock sway bar on road to the advantages of a Currie offroad with a flip of the switch. I'd personally say save your money and get the flilp action simply because its so simple even a cave man can do it.
As for the Rok-N-Lok Im surprised that thing hasn't died yet. Its been forever since it was supposed to come out.
