first trip to Moab taking my own jeep

Hey all, new the the forum. I've had my '97 Wrangler (first time jeep owner) for a few months now, but next week I'm testing her out for real to see what she can do off-roading. I have never tried disconnecting the sway bar before and I have been reading some of the other posts on here about making sure you only disconnect the front one and tying it our of the way with lynch pins or zip ties. But... my question is more rudimentary than that: I am not sure what the sway bar looks like or how to actually disconnect it in the first place. Is it just under the front wheel axel?

basiclly as that picture shows disconnect the swaybar links at the bottom problly with a wrench unless you have quick disconnects then after they are both undone take some zipties and ziptie them up somwhere in a safe place out of the tires way

Does that diagram look pretty accurate on a yj too? I was thinking of just disconnecting my sway bar all together as I've heard this is ok on a yj?
