yes, you need brake lines of the proper length.

Any lift 3" or above with the swaybar disconnected, I would use extended brake lines. I installed YJ brake lines. Direct fit, inexpensive.

IslandTJ I run a SwayLoc and will always recommend going with an off-road specific swaybar vs. outright disconnecting. However, the moments of full/sudden suspension drops due to being fully disconnected on extreme off camber trails, are not enough for me to not recommend disconnecting to a Jeep, vs. remaining connected. IMO given the 2, I would advise to keep all 4 tires on the ground by disconnecting.

Of course, ideally the route to take, would be the Antirock.

I understand the advantages of the Antirock. I was referring to the stability vs disconnect part of the post.

I do not agree with the better stability while disconnected comments. By design, a swaybar provides stability. Disconnecting defeats its purpose.

This is one of the advantages of installing a Currie Antirock, and why I switched my disco's for one. More stability off road, especially in off camber situations.

Sorry what? Disconnecting even with totally stock setup makes an enormous difference and provides a hell of a lot more traction and stability. Like a previous poster said make sure you are properly bumpstopped or you could cause serious damage to the fender, not just the flares.

jp2611 After I started running Disco's I was amazed at where I could go without geting stuck/ loosing traction.....most of our "wheeling" in this area is in fairly small spaces less than (20 acres) so we turn and are off camber a lot. If you aren't discoed you are going to have issues.

I never had issues with my 31"s but had SL...didn't get discoed till I went to 33"s and another 1.25" in BL and haven't rubbed "YET"!!

CarolinaBound Definitely makes a difference when you're off camber. Set up your bump stops properly and you'll have no worries

Is it better if i dont disconnect?

So I just got my new tires on (31" bfg's). I have a stock suspension and I have disconnecting sway bar links. Is it better to disconnect on the trail and let my tires rub or to not disconnect?
