If you are asking about brands to go with I would say either JKS or Currie Antirock. JKS is more dollar friendly and an easier install. But on the other hand a lot of people prefer the Antirock.

I currently have neither, but JKS Disco's are on my list to purchase for this summer. I just personally don't see the need to spend the money on the Currie when I don't wheel enough to really use the capability of the product. I can save that money for something else. Where the JKS sits around $80-$100 last time I checked. It's just going to be based off how you really use your rig. That's what I am basing my decision on.

^ Not sure on those, as I haven't heard anything in regards to feedback. Hopefully someone that has experience with that brand will chime in for you.

Not really much to say. They keep your sway bar hooked up when on the street, let you disconnect it for off-road so you can keep your front tires in contact with the ground and allow the front wheels to articulate independently of each other.

I have Rubicon Express disconnects, three piece style with a center bar you remove. Inexpensive, do the job. Run about $70 or so.

Some people find disconnects to be a bother to hook back up if the suspension isn't settled flat and even side to side. Nothing a little help from a portable jack can't solve though.

I had the jks disconnects on mine and was a total pain to put back together, unless you are on a very flat even surface. Needless to say they have sat in my garage for 4 years now.
