    Rubicon E-swaybar disconnect

    Like so many others, the e-disconnect swaybar had water in it and is toast. (happened twice before and was replaced under warranty, but now itís on 𝗺𝘆 pocketbook.) 2011 JKRU BTW. 56k miles. I was looking at the EVO air-powered disconnect, but then I tested my old one. The motor still works, and reverses when the leads are changed. Has anyone hardwired a switch to theirs? A momentary DPDT switch ought to work. Crazy idea?

    Can't be momentary. Need constant power to hold the bar unlocked... It springs back to locked once power is removed.

    I would go with the Evo manual disconnect. By far one of the best decisions I have made. Granted you do need to remember to connect it back when you get on pavement otherwise it will be fun.

    Haha ^^ fun is right.
    I second the manual. If I had the opportunity to disconnect more than I do I'd consider the air version but the manual is stupid easy.

    I live close to lot of trails and use my disconnect frequently. Donít think it requires constant power, as the motor turns a screw, then turns off. If direct wiring doesnít work then I will use an air powered disconnect so I donít have to get out in the mud and dirt if needed.

    Besides, the manual disconnect is about $100, and I can get an air power disconnect for about $200. For a hundred bucks I think itís worth the convenience.

    IMO anyway

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
