Default What do others do?

When I bought my Jeep it had the JKS sway bar quick release fitted. To be honest didn't realise or know anything about them. So next time I go out I want to take them off and see how it goes. After watching some YouTube vids people say to secure sway bar so it won't cause damage. Question is how are people doing this? Your thoughts/ideas appreciated...

Use zip ties (the big mofo ones) and the holes in the chassis rails to secure - make sure to keep the sway bar level.

You're in the Blue Mountains also - I'm down at Lapstone so let me know if you want me to show you in person (I can't drive anywhere this arvo due to too many beers already lol)

*edit* I've got some spare zip ties also if you need some in a hurry

With JKS disconnects, I believe you remove the links completely?
If so, you could try using a zip tie to secure the bar up out of the way.

My disconnects have a "parking" pin that you position the lower end of the link to.....it disconnects the bar and holds it up out of the way in one operation - the links are not removed from the bar end.

Thanks WhiteMeat! Not familiar with the mofo ties but I'm sure I can find some. I might try and hook up for a demo sometime but I am off to work later To many beers sounds good! Do you do much 4wdriving locally? I've been to Newnes / Lost City a few times but don't know many other places, any ideas or maybe fishing / 4wd spots? All the best...

Thanks LeighP seems like zip ties are the way to go

Big mofo zip ties = the biggest ones you can find haha the ones I have in my gear bag are from Bunnings: Crescent brand 370mm (L) x 7.6mm (W) pack of 25

I used to run JKS disconnects so can go through it all with you if you're not certain about it - just make sure to add in some WD40 & a soft mallet / hammer for getting the disconnects off (and sometimes on lol) along with the zip ties - btw - reason for holding the sway bar level when disconnected is so that the pins on the sway bar dont rip the inside of your tyre to shreds when turning and flexing...

I don't get out much at the moment re off roading for a few reasons - Actually, LeighP was on the trip that is now my goto for an easy day run haha (start at back of Blackfellows Hand track and come back to Lithgow via Lost City) Haven't really got the inclination to have my daily driver off the road due to weekend fun lol

lol no stress - hearing you re the heat - I need to check my headlights and am sinking beers waiting for it to cool down until I get started lol

I work 9-5 around Blacktown so can do mid week stuff if that suits - otherwise - can do a light run (one mentioned earlier) and we can go through it all then
