Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com. This is my review of the Rough Country front quick disconnects fitting all 1997 to 2006 Wranglers. These are available for both two and a half to three and a quarter inches of lift or four to six inches of lift so you can get the right ones for your suspension. Disconnecting your front sway bar off road will give you more articulation and flex, which allows you to keep more tires on the ground at the same time providing more traction to get over obstacles. You can disconnect your factory sway bars, but it's a little bit more of a difficult process and you have to have some wrenches. With a setup like this which is a quick disconnect, you can easily pull the pins and disconnect your sway bar at the trail head so you have maximum performance off road, but they'll easily reconnect providing a much more stable ride when you're on the road. These are a really simple set of quick disconnects. While they have a couple of drawbacks that we'll get to in a minute, they are less expensive than some of the other ones on the market. Depending on your budget and what you want for your Jeep, these may be a good fit. As I mentioned, these quick disconnects are adjustable for a range of lift kits, but there are two different versions of them, one for larger and one for smaller lifts. You want to make sure you get the right one for your Jeep. Once you get them installed, you'll be able to use the threaded rod to adjust them to length. These come with all the hardware that you need to get them installed on the Jeep and these brackets over here which give you a spot to hook the sway bar link into when they're not in use to make sure that they don't bind up or get bent. These do fit pretty tightly when you first get them installed on the Jeep which is a good thing because some cheap sets of quick disconnects will rattle right out of the box. These ones shouldn't rattle right away, however, they don't have a greasable joint at the top. Even the factory sway bar end links are greaseable. These ones are not. It makes me think that these are going to wear out a little bit quicker and end up rattling on you. Again, depending on your budget and what you want for your Jeep, these may be a good option, or you may want to spend a little bit more money and get a set that's greaseable that may last a little longer. Getting these installed on your Jeep is a pretty simple process. They'll just take the place of your factory end links. These don't come out of the box assembled like this. There are a few different pieces that you'll have to identify. The instructions make it really clear exactly what's what. This installation is really easy for anybody. You won't need any specialty tools, but you will need a Torx bit and a socket set. To start the installation, the first thing is to remove your factory sway bar end links. Once those are unbolted and removed, you can get to installing the new ones. First, you'll install this new bracket up top. Then, install the sway bar end link itself. Finally, you'll install the pin on the lower axle side of the sway bar end link and make your connection with the removable pin. The last step in the process is to install these brackets which, again, are just a bolt on part. They'll allow you to swing the disconnects up out of the way when they are disconnected off road, so they're not going to bind up with the axle. Once you have everything installed, you can adjust the length of the sway bar end links with the stop nut and the threaded rod. In order to get them adjusted properly, you want the sway bar to be right around parallel with the ground when the Jeep is under its own weight. Technically, you want the sway bar to be parallel to the ground when the Jeep is halfway through its suspension travel. That's a little bit more difficult to figure out, but right around parallel should do the trick. Like I said, these are a little bit less expensive than some of the other disconnects on the market. Right out of the box they fit pretty well. They're nice and tight and you shouldn't get any rattles out of them. However, without having a greasable joint at the top, I am a little bit concerned that they might wear out and start causing a little bit of noise. If you're concerned with how these are going to hold up over the long-term, you may want to spend a little bit more money and get one of those options that has a greaseable joint that's a little more heavy duty to eliminate any noise that may occur down the line. If you're looking for an inexpensive set of front sway bar quick disconnects to give you the full amount of articulation and suspension travel when you're off road, this is a good way to go. These may not hold up quite as well as some of the more expensive options on the market over many years of hard use. However, right out of the box, these'll work well and they install easily. That's my review of the Rough Country front quick disconnects fitting all 1997 to 2006 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

5 Top Rated Questions

Would this fit my Jeep Wrangler TJ with a 3.25 rough country suspension lift? It says 2.5-3.25 in the buying option, but then also says: "These Jeep Wrangler TJ accessories can be easily adjusted to work with 2.5" and 4"-6" of suspension.". I just need adjustable disconnects and was wondering if these would work with my Jeep?

  • As long as the option for 2.5-3.25" is selected the Rough Country Front Quick Disconnects will work with your lift with no issue.

Helpful (1)

I've got 3.25" suspension lift and 1" body lift. Should I get the kit for 4-6 inches of lift? Or does is it just based on your suspension lift?

  • You would just need new sway bar links, like the Rough Country Front Quick Disconnects, rated for your suspension lift. Your body lift would not factor in to the sway bar distance.

Helpful (0)

The top bolt on the left side of the disconnect broke off and I can't find a size that'll fit it, can you buy specific parts of this kit?

  • Unfortunately, we do no carry specific parts from this kit. I would recommend reaching out to Rough Country to see if you would be able to purchase the bolt or get the correct bolt size that you could outsource locally.

Will the Rough Country Front Discounts work with a 2" lift?

  • Hello, the Rough Country Front Quick Disconnects (97-06 Wrangler TJ) are adjustable to Fit Between 4” and 6" of Suspension, we would recommend using the Teraflex Front Swaybar Disconnects w/ 0-2 in. Lift (97-06 Wrangler TJ) for your 2" lift, which you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-swaybar-w-0-2-lift-jk-1743092.html

Will this work with a TJ with 3.5 inches of lift?

  • The Rough Country Front Quick Disconnects (97-06 Wrangler TJ) are only listed for 2.5 - 3.25" and 4 - 6". I would recommend purchasing the TERAFLEX SWAYBAR DISCONNECTS W/ 2-6 IN. LIFT (97-06 WRANGLER TJ) [http://www.extremeterrain.com/teraflex-swaybar-w-2-6-lift-jk-1743090.html].

    good stuff

    Works as it is supposed to. This set is really nice because of the way they securely mount out of the way when not in use. Other company's seemed to use strange straps or other things. Not these! Brackets are nice. Would certainly buy again if I happen to need another set for a different project.

    Great item.

    These quick disconnects are very easy to install and they work great. When disconnected they are held up out of the way with a bracket on the frame that is well out of the way and very secure.

    I was kind of worried about getting these end links at first because of how cheap they were, but they are actually pretty good quality. It comes with all the parts you need a neat place to hang them when they are disconnected. They also don’t rattle at all.

    Quick Install And Perfect Fit

    Less than an hour to get these bad boys in, and didn't even have to jack it up. My only concern in the beginning was how difficult the "quick" disconnect was going to be. Once you get the hang of it, one person can uncouple and stow both sides in less than a minute.

    New rough country disconnects

    Bought these because my old disconnects had to be diconnected on both ends then I had to find a place in my jeep to put those grease coated pieces until I reconnected, now they just swing up and reconnect to the frame, very satified

    Quick Sway Bar Discommect

    These sway bar disconnects are great for the price. They took no longer than an hour to install. The only thing that took a while was the stock sway bar links, they were a little rusty which made them harder to get off. They are easy to disconnect Offroad. No bolts to take out. I wish they had were greasable but for the price they are just right for a TJ. I would recommend getting a new set after a few years. Overall this is a great product.

    Cheap Product

    I have always loved rough country parts. However i put them on and went offroading and immediately both brackets got bent and i lost one of the pins because it broke off. To top it all off the actual sway bar itself ended up getting bent. So after half an hour on some moderate trails i had a bent sway bar on one side no pin on the otherside and 2 bent brackets.
