rics1997 Don't know how I missed this thread reopened. Glad you got yours installed. So far I love mine and it works great. And yes there is no modifications needed at all. A Rubicon sway bar bolts right up on the sport, 6 bolts counting the sway bar links. The EVO just takes three bolts.

Bubb Well, for anyone interested a Rubi sway bar will bolt right up to a Sport with no modifications. Just make sure and have the special hanger bracket for the disco side.

Bubb Remo, sent you a PM.
07-24-2013 07:49 AM
RemoJK sounds good let me know
07-24-2013 12:45 AM
Bubb Maybe I can test it out and determine what's bad. I'd hate for you to have two broken motor/circuits!

RKracing "Some recommend still disconnecting under extreme articulation"

I use to believe this too. Then I met a few (more than 6) hard core guys running this same set up that have traveled all over the U.S. and they love it. If they have no problems with this set up then I am sure that I am good to go.
07-24-2013 12:34 AM
Bubb It's on it's way to me now, let me get it in hand first. I was considering someday wiring up everything on my Sport but doubt ill ever get around to it.

I may be interested, I never really tried to locate what crapped out on mine. I figured it was the motor or something. How much are you asking?

07-22-2013 11:47 PM
Bubb Ill try to post up some info after I install
07-22-2013 11:47 PM
Bubb Everything I've read indicates this should be able to fit on a 2013 JKU Sport as long as you have the Rubicon bracket(s)
07-22-2013 11:46 PM
Bubb After doing some more research I decided to pull the trigger myself
07-18-2013 02:29 PM
RemoJK got ya, I don't see why the rubi sway bar wouldn't just bolt up in place of your stock one. Seems like you would just need to sway bar, actuator, motor, and switches then just wire it up.
not 100% sure though
07-18-2013 12:58 PM
Bubb Correct, I've seen used Rubicon e-disco bars on here and on my local CL from time to time, so I'm looking to see what it'd take to get this setup on my Sport. If I could find a good deal on a used/broken Rubi bar, it looks like this is very close in price to JKS Quicker discos, but more convenient. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

These are only required with rubicons with the auto sway bar disconnect. If you have a sport you can look at the quick disco's for your sway bar end links.

I use to have JKS quick disco's but there are plenty other brands that make them too.

Unless I'm reading this wrong, are you saying you want the whole rubi swaybar set up in your sport?

You just take out the actuator and put this in it's place. only thing you have to do is zip tie the plug somewhere to your cross member or where ever

I got lucky on this one. Been looking to pick one up every since I seen someone else do this. Found this one for sale in the Forum For Sale section off a 2012. You can also modify the electronic section and hook it to a toggle switch but you have to drill out the rivets and bypass the circuit board. Might try that later on but for now, this is easy to use and you don't have to worry about the electronics failing.

Thorshammer7 Very nice !!! I want one too.
06-12-2013 10:28 AM
rics1997 Got it installed. Had to give it a little test and pose. Very easy to use and only takes a couple seconds to disengage. After testing, I have no concern of sway bar flip

I'll be manually disconnecting both links from now on.
Yeupppp

That's the only feature on my new Rubicon that I don't much like, that e-disconnect. I never minded the pins on my old RE quick disconnect. I'm always getting dirty anyway, so reconnecting them wasn't a big deal.

To the OP, that's cool. Let us know how it all works out!
I have Rock Krawler end links and installed them with the optional quick disconnect method with pins.

Being level has nothing to do with if they are long enough to keep from flipping. You need to set it up to when one side is at full drop and make sure the sway bar is not close to the breakover point.

If you have a lot of down travel from ride height your sway bar will not be parallel at all.

Yeah, that's a fraction of the cost of a new one.

Yelp... I watched the video, it looks like it is real easy to operate
