JKS is supposed to be good. No firsthand experience though.

I have JKS disconnects on my 2012. No rattling whatsoever. I've had them on previous Jeeps too. They didn't rattle on any of those Jeeps either.

I have Tera Flex on a JKU, They do not rattle and work well. But I also have heard nothing but good things about the JKS

Swaybar disconect

I have teraflex with no issues at all..

Also the teraflex have a slot where you can attach the links while off-road. No need to zip tie them.

The JKS come completely off. The swaybar bushings are tight enough to keep the bar from dropping. I suppose once the bushings wear out and it starts loosening up and the bar starts to drop on its own, I'll probably just replace the bushings.

Either way, you can't go wrong with JKS or Teraflex.

Factory rubicon swaybar with correct length links and an Evo no limits...

No jumping, tweaking, smacking, zip tying, looking for wrenches... Just turn a knob.

That's why you get rid of the electronic part and get the Evo no limits...

I used Rubicon Express disconnects which are similar in design to the JKS. They worked well for me at Moab this year. They are designed to be completely removed and have the quick disconnect pins like the JKS. They are slightly cheaper than JKS as well.

You can't disconnect any easier than ORO's Swayloc
Off Road Only SwayLOC™

If only I had the $$$....till then, I'm using Rough Country's disconnects. No rattling, no zip tie, etc.

Teraflex is cheaper. Just pull pin and move to the holder and replace pin.

Did that chit about 3 times before my JKS order came in. Lying on my back under a soupy-mud-dripping JK quickly made $150 seem like a frickin' bargain.

Exactly... And if your just a lil tiny bit off camber, or crooked your out there with someone jumping on your jeep while you kneel/lay on the ground to get it in the hole!

Little more pricey when you buy a rubi bar but you pay a price for convenience.
