Addco Sway Bar Size Question

I'm getting ready to install a 2" Rough Country suspension lift and shocks on my 04 WJ with the 4.7L and Quadratrac. Also, putting on 245/75/16 Kumho SAT all terrains. I'm thinking I should change out the sway bar to control the body roll from the taller height, it's bad enough stock. I've read alot about the Addco sway bars on this forum, they seem pretty popular. My question is, which size bar is the best, the 7/8" or the 1" diameter? I don't do much if any off-roading, closest I get is going into camp on a pretty rough 18 miles of gravel road. I don't want the ride to be too stiff as it is my daily driver.
Are these a direct bolt on with no modifications and can I still use the stock length end links or should I extend these also?
Any thoughts on my lift selection? Is this a good choice for getting just the lifted look and how do they hold up? I'm not into thrashing the snot out of my vehicles just need to make my WJ not look like an old lady's ride.
Thanks in advance for any input, thoughts and suggestions.

Most everybody here uses the 1" rear bar.

Re: Addco Sway Bar Size Question

I didn't know addco made anything other than the 1", but that is what I have and love it. The old end links can be reused, i think with only 2" lift you will be ok.

Yeah Aaron they make a 7/8' bar also but you don't hear too much about it.
