Default Electric Sway Bar Disconnect?

Thinking about adding this luxury item to the jeep. Anyone have a recommendation?

I don't think they exist for the XJ to be honest. Custom fab and anything is possible though!

Or just get some JKS ones because they are probably the easiest to disconnect and reconnect (you will always need to find flat & level ground though, even with an electric disconnect)

I have some disconnects but reconnecting them has been a real pain. I usually have to either drive the wheel on a carefully selected rock or use a pry bar and help from a friend to get it back on. everything is lined up correctly so that is not the issue, its just a pain to reconnect.

The jk rubicon has it but i don't trust it.Its done with a motor and we all know how well a motor does under a jeep.Years ago i had a bronco with the push button 4x4 well the motor on the t case that shifted it died at the wrong time lol.

thanks Andrew. I had an old Chevy 4x4 that other owners of the same year group reported the same issue with. every time I went into 4x4 I wondered if I would get out of it. I think you make a good point on convince vs. reliability. simple is better it seems.

It sounds like the problem you have is the disconnect kit you installed on yours, all I need is some level ground to reconnect mine.


I can't think of any electric motor that would hold up very well being submerged all the time, even then having to clean all the mud and other trash out before they would connect/disconnect properly. I have to clean mine every time when off road.
