Tenneco steering stabilizer?

I'm in need of a new steering stabilizer. With 33's and wheeling alot my stock one is getting pretty beat (should have changed it long ago actually) I was going to get an OME to match my shocks but I really don't want to spend $80 on a steering stab. Anyone ever heard of Tenneco? Would this be a decent choice for a steering stab or should I just suck it up and get something else?

it doesnt really matter what steering stabilizer you get. they're all 50/50 valving.

I run a skyjacker steering stabilizer. the paint sucks. it was like $21-25 ish.

So this would do the job just fine I take it? It's only $30 compared to the $80 OME I mean I know you get what you pay for but in this situation does it really matter?

The paint dose suck! Sucks on the shocks as well, mine are all rusting.

I have the Tenneco on my 04 Grand Cherokee. It is in fact made by Monroe. It seems fine, much beefier than the factory one of course. It has been on there for more than 2 years and has a little bit of rust on the outside, but it is black so it could easily be wire wheeled and sprayed again.

Thanks guys. Besides the Tenneco is there any stabilizer you would recommend specifically before I close the deal?
