Advice on quick disconnects

Hey everyone just a newby to this jeep stuff. I have an 04 tj Columbia edition( whatever that means) I bought it with a 2 inch budget lift and 32s. I took it wheelin last weekend at spring creek for the first time only had time to go to the mine but I did the first obstacle and it was fun!! I am looking at putting on some disconnects on any suggestions or thoughts? Also any thoughts/ suggestions on a winch?
Thanx everyone in advance
Mike

Disconnects come according to lift sizes. Do you plan on putting more lift on your Jeep soon? If you buy disconnects make sure you get ones that work with your current an any future lift. Another option is the Curry Antirock which acts as an automatic sway bar.

The two inch seemed great for now. How does an automatic sway bar work?

Here's a great explanation:




Here's it action on a 2" lift.




FWIW: there are pros and cons of the Antirock for a DD.

Not really, start spraying nuts with PB blaster. Make sure both disconnects of the exact same lengths.

The hardest part can be getting the press fit links separated from the sway bar. I usually remove the links from the axle, then remove the nuts on the top of the links, then remove the sway bar and use this method to get the links off.

This works well, however you can also use a TRE puller if you don't want to remove the entire sway bar. That's how I originally changed mine.
