Why'd you get the AntiRock if you already have the Rubi disconnects? Personally I prefer the button.

Disconnecting isn't always the best. Having anti-rock it keeps the front inline with the rear in-terms of traction etc. The way I understand it is using an offroad bike as an example, you move you butt forward and back as traction and weight is needed... Just how I understand it. I could be wrong.

The stock sway bars aren't long enough for the articulation you gain with coilovers. Also the electric rubicon disconnect is a ticking time bomb doomed for failure so I'll sell it to somebody. Plus compared to manual disconnects it's a no brainer for me, I'm lazy so not having to manually do something is a plus! Also, the Antirocks for the rear axle gives you WAY more travel than stock.

Didn't even know these existed until now. Ingenious! Road stability would naturally take a hit so drive safe!

Those are safari nets over the back correct? I'm looking to get some and I am hoping they will work with the full spider web shade.

I have the full spider web shade also, there is zero issue using the safari straps with it. They are both on in that pic.

Perfect! Thanks.

I've heard that the spiderweb shade can stay on even with the hard top. Is that correct?

I leave the safari nets and the spiderweb shade on all the time, no issues taking top on off.

Perfect! That was my reservation on getting them. I already swap doors out for the body armor doors so I didn't really want to add much more time doing a swap.
