Any TJ's with Currie Antirock?

Looking for anyone running a Currie Antirock sway bar on a tj, I'm curious how you like it? How bad is body roll on the street?

Thanks,

Terry

I love mine. I have mine set on the last pin. Body roll is not any different than stock in my opinion. Good mod way better than quick discos

All true. Was my favorite mod before hydro assist.

I installed about 3 weeks ago and love it, the additional body roll is negligible and when going over potholes and over smaller speed bumps you can tell the difference and plus no need to disco anything. All in all I had a little buyers remorse after I got it but once I installed it I'd never go back to the stock sway bar.

Well, I have one but it has been replaced with the stock sway bar. At speeds above 60 it gets twitchy and a sudden maneuver at those speeds causes a noticeable dive. Living in the mountains I drive a lot of passes and I don't drive them slow so stable handling is not an option. I doubt that I'll find a compromise that works well on the road and on trails so I will most likely just sell it. It is a pain to reset the Currie and takes a lot longer than disconnecting. Besides, it takes me less than a minute to disconnect and I have well balanced articulation disconnected so my attitude is why bother.

I have one and love it. It really does make a big difference when offroad. I'm also on the loosest setting. I do feel some sway but not enough to make me not run it or feel unsafe driving it.

There was just an aluminum version on craigslist for $200. The guy had it sold within minutes of listing. I would have bought it at that price just to use it as trade bait!

I have had it for about 2 years now. Love it. Every time I wheel, it is nice to just relax while my wheeling buddies climb under their rigs to reconnect. The on road performance is really no different than stock once you get used to it and I drive high way all the time.

I have one as well and love it. During street driving, I think that the body roll is negligible but if you had to do any evasive maneuvers I think it would definitely be noticeable and possibly scary. Off roading, it is great. Even if it had no benefits to actual 4 wheeling (which it does), not having to disconnect and re-connect is worth the price alone!!! Haha.

For what its worth, my wife drove my dads TJ (which has the stock sway bar) around the block and noticed IMMEDIATELY that she liked the ride better than my Tj (with Currie AntiRock). So I think it just depends on the person and what they can "handle" as far as body roll.

Now don't get me wrong, I think they are great for their intended application and if I ran primarily off road that is the way I would go. However I'm not in that situation and don't want to be so if running a Currie means I am increasing the likelihood of flipping my jeep then it's thanks but no thanks. Summer is coming and with it a bunch of turons and flatlanders who have no bloody clue how to drive in the mountains. I have had to make too many high speed dives onto the shoulder or into a ditch to avoid some moron who takes the whole road because they have no clue how to drive in the mountains. As far as being able to "handle" sway, anyone who wants to come up here and play "chase" with me you're more than welcome...

Don't feel like the lone ranger Justin, I only know two people in that category, SFRubicon and Wanderlust and they both scare the shit out of me, except when they don't...

I take extra caution when disconnected after what happened with you in BV. Scary

Well, that was one of the more interesting examples of what happens when your suspension simply can't handle the shit hitting the fan. Doug is still trying to figure out how I managed not to roll my jeep. BTW are we going to hook up on a trail any time soon? I haven't had a hug from you in a hell of a long time and I am in major withdrawl. What are you doing this weekend? There has to be a trail somewhere or even if there isn't...

I guess I'm in that same camp.
I just feel like I don't mind disconnecting enough to warrant the cost and possible instability on the highway. I too have had to make fast maneuvers that could have resulted in a roll if not solid up front.
I'm ok with thanking the couple of minutes on the way in and out with the quick discos and have total confidence to chase you down. :-)

Yeah, until you've been there you really have no clue what it's like to get that close to totaling your jeep. It's just not worth taking the chance.

Oh and as far as chase goes I've had you yelling "uncle" a few times

We shall see. Going to run it for a bit and see how I like it. JKs have less room to do things than you would think

I bet.. But to actually answer the original question... Anti-rock swaybar is not for everyone. The bigger and heavier your wheel and tire combo is, the better they work. I have been in and driven tjs with them, if you run a loose soft suspension, they will not help you on the road much. John sfrubicon runs them on his jk and had then on his TJ. He swears by them.. I am 50/50 on them. If you toss your jeep into corners on the road, you better be ready for the worst.
