Question on lift kit working with automatic sway bar disconnects
I own a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. I have been wanting to buy a lift kit, more than likely a 4" one. I am not sure what lift kits or if any are compatible with the automatic sway bar disconnects that the vehicle currently comes standard with. It would be nice if they worked together so I would have the convenience of only having to press the button still vs. getting in and out of the vehicle every time. I was wondering if anyone knows of a solid lift kit for this issue? Thank you!

You've probably figured this out by now, but any lift kit worth a damn will have extended sway bar links. Take off the stock short ones, pop on the custom longer link and all will be well. The electronic disconnect wont know the difference and will work just fine.

at 4" be sure to get new drive lines too. remember a good lift is measured at the rear so the front is going to be like 5+. this is a lot of lift on a Jk. Lifts atthis size should be a COMPLETE and from a GOOD company. if it cuts corners at that height you will not be happy how it handles. depending on the lift ; flipped drags and raised track bars to keep the roll center flatter. so much at 3aqnd up that the cost gets people. plan on about 1k per inch at that height. all in.
