|MarioM0one||It is unfortunate, regarding the issues regarding the problems with the originators of the design and the licensees. Of course, I have no idea, it could have been more of a hand-shake agreement gone bad. Of more concern as a consumer, are the postings I have read of the lack of support to the product. I read about a part for a two year old unit needing to be replaced which was no longer available. Most of the reviews available on Google are from several years ago, so one would hope things have got better, given they are still around. For me, driving on freeways, the AR is not an option in its current design, as much as I like the company. I am no stranger to sudden high speed swerving situations, so I would not want to compromise the stability of an already relatively unstable vehicle. I've got a 4" lift riding on 325/65R18's Nittos (35's), which actually handles surprisingly well. I am convinced the SwayLoc is what I need. With a 4.53 back spacing and -12 offset 18" wheels, I don't have the necessary clearance turning lock-to-lock. Seems that my only option to make it work (without sacrificing turn radius) would be to use wheel spacers. I checked the forum on the subject and I will go with the Spidertrax. By the way, I e-mailed ORO asking for install instructions. Steve replied within an hour with a PDF. I feel better already. Thank you for the responses. Mario|

I can't speak for Jerry but there were some questionable practices between the manufacturer of the SwayLOC and the originator(s) of the design. It pissed off or annoyed many in the community. That and I think one of the latter generations (they are on the 3rd or 4th now) had some reliability issues. Not sure if it was cleared up or not yet. Be good idea to do some research on them.
I still think it's a good design and one of the better ones out there. And after switching form the AR to the SwayLOC I still love and prefer the SwayLOC. It's the street performance of the SwayLOC's stiffer swaybar setting that I like so much. Just can't get that with the Anti-rocks and I use my Jeep enough on the street that the AR annoyed me too much.

|peter12||Anti Rock - Superior handling anywhere off pavement; Much more stability off road; The Jeep stays much more level as it goes through its articulations.|

i installed the antirock this past weekend. hardest part was starting the white plastic bushings into the frame. i only have 3" suspension lift and trimmed the link 1/2" on each side. kept the nuts on all the way on the links before/during cutting so i could "chase" the threads but unscrewing the nuts.
i have xrc front bumper and looked like just slid by with enough clearance - in that i put the bolts in upside down on the ones that crimp the arms to the rod. the head is a little smaller than the lock nut so the head seems to just clear the bumper when i rotates down.
thanks for the info everyone!

Also, the issue is that there need to be a clear "pocket" on the bumper to accommodate where the Antirock / Swaylock / etc. stick out the end of the front cross member tube. I don't know the specifics of a particular bumper. Some might require trimming. I know the Savvy does not. The ARB does.
Figure approximately 2-3" out rom the face of the frame in an area about 1/2" larger diameter than the crossmember tube.
As biffgnar mentioned, try searching for threads on the subject, particularly in the TJ section.

This thread has been continued for at least 5 years It's a great write up on a very intriguing product. I just have one question.. On the 2nd page someone mentioned various front bumpers that would work. Would the Rokmen Mercenary Front Bumper fit without trimming? If it needs to be trimmed what exactly needs to happen?
Sorry for my ignorance.. Once again well done and thanks in advance
