Maybe itís a 2 door issue with on road handling being less than desirable.  All the 4drs seem to love it. Sam had off-road issues only, but I think.... wait, word of the day... ASSUME he doesnít drive it on road too much.

I 100% deserve that.  my bad.

I drive my jeep all the time on road. The only time i noticed it was when all the weight was on the back tires. (think ledges) It was like my jeep didn't have enough weight up there to overcome the antirock and actually flex. I've changed so much now i could probably go back to it and be happy but at this point disconnecting isnt a big deal to me so im leaving it as is.

Iím gonna go against what most people say. My jeep is flexy and I noticed myself lifting my tires off the ground more than without. I got rid of it and went back to a stock swaybar setup that I just disconnect.

Definitely more stability offroad.  I switched and noticed immediately that when I dropped into a hole or off a ledge I didn't get that side to side boat rocking feeling anymore.  Sometimes that was very disconcerting depending on how off camber it was.  I have not noticed any loss in droop but I know there is probably a tiny bit. 

As well, after the axle swap my swaybar/locker controls were now in 2 different places(switchpro and stock rubicon switches) and I just got tired of forgetting to disconnect.

I say go for it.
How did your street ride differ? Hard to get used to or not?

Thatís another variable Iím guessing is the actual weight and add one on your vehicle. Iíve got steel bumpers front and back, skid plates to combine with the JK length and weight. Thanks!

back to topic.  sorry if i derailed the thread.

My take.  Off road i had no issues, it was on the road i struggled.  the JK version did not have holes to make adjustments and it just did not feel as stable to me, more personal pref.   many folks in the club have them and have no issues.  either way, its a solid product, proven.   I just decided its not for me, went back to the quick disconnetcs.  and im happy atm.  takes me a few min to disconnect and a few min to reconnect. 

Did you not try and drill more holes?

No, the guy that bought it from Kent said that was a bad idea...!

Gulches really made the ďboat rockingĒ more evident on my rig. Thanks for your input. Looks like Allsouth will get more of my business! @dannykinder
