Who makes the best quick disconect?!? I got the ones that came with my Rough Country X-series lift and they completely suck! Evil or Very Mad They are way too hard to get on and off... looking for new QDs.

Look at either the JKS Quicker Disconnects or the Rubicon Express Generation II's. I have the RE Gen I's that I picked up from someone that upgraded to the Gen II's. If I would buy new I would get the RE Gen II's. I'm talking for XJ, TJ, ZJ, WJ, whatever the vehicle.

I have the RE Gen II's on both the TJ and XJ. They are fine. I have nothing to compare to them...other than the guys I wheel with. They can be a PITA just like any of them I suppose, but still easier than disco'ing the stockers and probably better than many out there.

In terms of removal and reconnection, the RE GenII's are just like the JKS quickers. The only real difference is that the RE's can rotate 360* and come with an extra set of pins to store them (and keep the sway bar out of the way).

I think the new JKS QDs have the stow away available now as well. Thanks for the input... I'll let you know how they turn out.

Well I ended up getting the JKS Quicker Disconnects and they are awesome! They are so simple to install and operate... way better than my old three piece ones and these do have the axtra pin used to hold your sway bar up and out of the way while disconnected. I highly recommend! Finger
