Read a little on them last night. Seems they are more suited for off-road and have a tendency to give body roll manners on the street. Do you experience this with your rig when driving on the street?

Well, since I went from running no sway bars for 3 yrs to the front antirock, it actually drives better now on the street.... but yeah, these are designed for off-road use, I got tired of puckering when off-camber since when fully disconnected, the suspension unloads and the body just sways from side to side.



When I was at 3", I used to run addcos front and rear, great handling on pavement but limits your flex off-road forcing you to disconnect. With the antirock, the flex is preserved, but in a more controlled manner.



I don't daily drive the WJ, and trailer it 90% of the time to the local wheeling spot since I have to drive 1-1/2 hr and cannot stand the vibes above 65 mph, so the antirock makes the most sense for me.



I may try running the stock rear bar since it's small, if I don't like it or it breaks, I may end up having to fit a rear AR as well down the road.

Edit:

Tossed the rear stock sway bar in. Had considered mounting it behind the axle with the brackets attached to the axle truss and the links to the stock "frame" tie ins, but with the axle being pushed back with the long arms, it would give the sway links a steep angle, and clearing the springs was hard. Mocked it in front of the axle like in my super-duty, but the bar would hit the LCAs when articulating.

Ultimately, opted to put it up in the frame and the links coming down to the LCAs. That worked the best, and gave me perfect angles and clearances.

I drilled the frame in the area that was already double plated where the stock rear A-arm frame mounts were. I then fished taped bolts thru the frame and out the drilled out holes, and secured the brackets with a lock washer and nut. Then welded the stock link frame tie ins to the LCAs just 1/2" before the axle bushings.

Still flexes quite nicely, but complements the front AR quite well to add stability on and off-road.
