Steering Stabilizers

So there's a Rough Country stabilizer for $28 and other stabilizers by Rubicon Express, Rancho, etc. for around $40. Is the more expensive stabilizer worth it over the RC? What's the difference?

Thanks,
YJman!

Me too lol but I've heard that if the boots cracks or something it will trap moisture in. But they also keep the dirt and grime out, and do look pretty sweet.

And thanks again MikeMYJ.

I went with the rancho, and it works great. not sure how it compares to others but it seemed like a safe bet to me.

I'll check the ranchos out. Hows is you '93 with a 2.5 inch lift with 32s? I was thinking of doing the same. Any clearance issues?

Pretty much all the stabilizers are the same....never run a boot on a shock or a stablizer...they hold crap against the chrome shaft and will rust it faster.
