Oh I agree with that 100% but I was going by the facts at hand. Like I said no garentee that the bracket will fix but he asked if there was a bracket of some type. I was just telling him what should have been there.

JEREMYTJ Thanks man for ur help

Kevbz if the quick disconnects are the correct length for a 4" lift...yes. the body lift does not effect the sway bar since it is mounted on the frame.
03-26-2012 02:26 PM
JEREMYTJ Well heres another question, i bought the jeep with the 4 inch lift and 3 inch body right.. it did not come with a swaybar. It has the quick disconnects already so will a stock swaybar work just fine?

Jeep_guy3 I dont think anyone else makes something comparable. I was reluctant to spend the money at first, but now that it's installed and I have a full working tcase that shifts like butter... I'd buy another in a heart beat if I get another jeep without it.
03-26-2012 01:36 PM
JEREMYTJ Ya i looked them up.. they are kinda expensive! Is there any cheaper ones
03-23-2012 01:00 AM
s3nt3nc3d I'll echo the recommendation...it's not cheap, but it works flawlessly.
03-23-2012 12:35 AM
Jeep_guy3 I got mine from savvyoffroad.com $189 or something like that, it was worth every penny too. I have a 4" suspension and 2"BL and never could get it into 4lo. This fixed all my problems and shifts like butter.
03-23-2012 12:14 AM
JEREMYTJ Where would i go about to get one? 4 wheel parts?
03-22-2012 10:45 PM
Jeep_guy3 X2 on the Novak cable shifter.
03-22-2012 10:31 PM
Kevbz I believe you need a Novak linkage set up
