Electronic disconnects???
 
Are there any lifts kits that allow you to retain the electronic sway bar disconnect feature of the Rubicon?

I have been researching lifts on this site and manufacturers' sites for several weeks now, and haven't seen an answer for this question yet.

I have pretty much narrowed my lift down to the Rock Krawler 2.5 max travel and Bilstein 5100's. Going with 35 Mickey Thompson MTZs.

But if there is a comparable kit, or a way to put one together, that uses the electronic disco, I might consider that route.

Is there an advantage to a manual disco over the stock electronic disco?

Thanks!
Matt

All do because the links are not disco'd. The sway bar itself is from the motor.

Edit: should not have said all. Most but as long as new longer links are with the kit, and most do. Some use the rears which are longer for the front.

Check this out. I had a 2 inch lift put on my Rubicon, and Chrysler said I needed this to keep the electric swaybar disconnect: MOPAR P5155512 - MOPAR® Performance Front Sway Bar Links for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon & Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon JK - Quadratec


As you can see this is from Quadratec. You might check, if you decide this is what you need, I was able to get mine cheaper from one of the local dealerships.

A lot of folks here will call the MTZ's "boutique" tires.

I had them on my last Jeep and loved them. They look great, handle mud like nobody's business, and grip the road like a street tire.

Most if not all will allow the retention of the factory electronic disconnect feature.

On the BDS lift they offer two versions of their kit, one for the Rubicon which has solid links for using the electronic actuator and the other for the Sahara or X with the manual disconnect design links.
