adawg38 Thanks Jerry that's what I wanted to know.
The factory sway bar is pretty cheap and the extended links are as well so I am just gonna get the setup.

Jerry Bransford Personally, I would find a used rear antiswaybar and install it. I have had the displeasure of driving my TJ when its rear antiswaybar was broken/non-functional (busted link) and the drive through my local mountains without it was surprisingly unstable. Even the three young Boy Scouts I had in the Jeep at the time noticed the additional sway and body roll and started joking about getting sick and throwing up.

The rear antiswaybar does not reduce the amount of usable articulation for the rear axle.

One interesting fact: John Currie won the US National ARCA rock crawling championship with front and rear antiswaybars fully connected. They were Antirocks but that still illustrates the point that disconnecting both antiswaybars is not the way to better offroad performance like some think.

Personally, I run with a stock rear antiswaybar with longer links and a Currie Antirock antiswaybar up front.

adawg38 I contacted the dealership and my SE package with the Vin does not come factory with rear sway bars. Thanks for the previous replys, I am still curious if I left on the front sway bar links with no sway bar in the rear vs disconnecting the front with a rear sway bar offroad if there is a difference? Does the rear articulate easier than the front?

X2 Look into the currie antirock setup though. If you have to get a rear swaybar might as well upgrade it.

Rear Sway Bar/Front Disconnect ???

When I put my 3.25" Lift on my 06 SE I also put on quick disconnects in the front and noticed I do NOT have a rear sway bar setup but do have the mounting spots on my D35. Rear sway bar setup I found is pretty cheap and at this point I know my front disconnects are pointless but my question is how much difference on and off road would it be with regular extended sway bar links in the front/no sway bar in the rear vs disconnects in the front/sway bar in the rear?
