ok i just recently put on a 4.5 superflex RE lift. it has the GEN II disconnects with it. My question is.....have any of you used this kit on your cherokee? and if so......where did you mount the other end of the disconnect....you know the part where after you pull the disconnect pin out and disconnect the sway bar you attach it to the point out of the way and slide the pin back in so it doenst hang down. i know this is a very vague question but i honestly can't think of what the piece is called. I have looked on the inner fender and cant find a reasonable spot to drill through to mount this piece on. any help or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

Do you mean what do you do with the sway bar once it's disconnected? Or, where do you mount the lower half of the disconnect?

For the first ?, My brother-in-law just bungies his out of the way when he disconnects it. Be careful to get it completely out of the way or it could get caught up in your springs when you flex.

That's strange? Mine came with a pic of where to mount it. I think you are talking about the pins you have to mount for storage when they are disconnected? That's the best things about them!! I love mine!! I don't have a pic to show you and sadly I don't have a camera. I mount my pieces up foward toward the fender support. I un hooked them and raised them up & foward, maked it and drilled it. Just be careful not to drill into any line running across that area.

Yea, the resovoir is inside the fender on the drivers side. But that's not in the fender, it's in the wheel well...which is under the resovoir. Wink

That's a nice place to mount them. Unfortunatlry most XJ's did not come with a factory front skid plate....it was an option that came with the tow package (I believe).

the factory skid plate is exactly where i ended up first putting my mounts, but i was curious about other spots as well. I dont know about you guys but the skid plate option isn't exactly ideal. the mounts rub the tire at full lock when the suspension goes up a drive way or something of that sort. so the inner fender i believe is a more reasonable spot.
