I went to change my front sway bar bushings today and found that the bar is so rusty and worn that even the new bushings are loose. The diameter at the bushing area is probably 1/4 smaller than the rest of the bar. Any ideas for a stock aftermarket supplier and cost?

I am in the same boat. I don't know how much a replacement bar is but as soon as I get the funds, I'll be putting in the Currie sway bar system to rectify the situation. Plus, the system has new links as well.

Well I'm not planning any extreme off-roading with this daily driver but that Currie Antirock looks cool. I called a dealer today. A stock sway bar is $160. Gonna have to live with it as is for now.

X2. On the antirock, just installed mine this weekend and it's great.
If you want a stock one, swing by the shop I will give you one.
I will never go back to stock

IMO. I wish I had it when the jeep was still stock.
I would never had thought it would had made the jeep ride so much better

I bought a stock sway bar on eBay for $25 plus shipping. Lots of used ones available. Mine was rusted and worn so bad the bar just flopped around side to side. It was pretty useless. Bought the Jeep that way.
20 minutes with a wire wheel or flap disc on an angle grinder and it'll shine like new. paint it black and reinstall.
I used two pieces of 1/4" thick diamond plate steel on my roll cage as gussets. They were sourced from a piece of scrap laying in a pasture under about 18" of grass....and they looked a lot worse than your sway bar. Here's what they looked like after some quality time with a wire wheel...
