This switch engages the front vacume hubs, I put it right where the old 4wd switch was.

I have Ace HArdware disconnects on my BII front and rear.
they are similar to whats pictured, except I also used a spring and washers to keep tension on the pin.

They work fantastic.
Dont forget to put the bushings IN THE TRUCK when you disco the sway bars, I left them pressed in one time and lost 2 on the trail :) hahaha

the afternarket disco's are nice, but they are noisy and I have really never seen any I like. The sway bars on my truck are built up from parts from Explorer's rangers, Bronco's and even full size.....they work great

The truck looks good Dustin. I have the same thing up front for my sway bar, the rear is off for good. I know you said that the BL isn't on yet...you plan on having it on for Badlands?

no :( i really dont know when i will get it on, no free time or money....hopefully it will be on by the fall.

As for the rear bar, i am not the only one who drives the truck, so i would feel more comfortable with it still on there for the times when others drive it, plus it takes me and the boat to the lake in the summers on ocassion :D

351 - What springs do you have f/r? Is there a mount for a sway bar on the front axle...I think CodePoet said he had one on his? Another idea for it to handle better on the street is adjustable shocks, stiffer for road, softer off-road.(unless you already have some)
