Quick Disconnects for a Truck??

I'm helping a friend this weekend do a lift on his Jeep Rubicon. Quick Disconnects are very popular among Jeep Owners. Do they make these for trucks, specifically my Dodge Ram? I can't seem to find them on the web.

Ummmmm, there's a guy on here who has them on his 1500. He made them himself and uses them with his 6" Dick Cepek lift. Forget his screen name [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img], superswamper knows who he is.

Re: Quick Disconnects for a Truck??

If you take off your sway bar, won't it cause problems possibly if you corner to fast? When I say problems, I mainly mean body swaying heavily. I have never taken off my sway bar before, except recently when doing a lift. I have done a decent amount of off-roading in the past, but still am a newbie compared to most people on these sites.

I'm probably going to take it off next week to check out the flexing and snap some pictures. Mainly to see how it feels and how it looks [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Quick Disconnects for a Truck??

RedBucket is the guy who has the home made sway bar discos. Took a little diggin', but that's him.[img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] PM or email him or something. If I remember correctly, his truck was on the cover of 4 Wheel & Off Road several years ago. Red quad cab if I remember correctly.

Taking off your swaybar won't necessarily make it roll over with the first gust of wind. Will the difference be noticeable? I've heard people say it made no difference with all kinds of vehicles with all kinds of suspensions, and other people claim they drove it once and put it right back on after scaring themselves. Disconnect it, drive around, and see how you like it.
