Patrick H In my experience, Krylon is far superior. I restore antique Coleman lanterns, and I've laid down some paint jobs that could pass for pro body shop work.

Looks like I'm heading for my other project in addition to the one I'll be starting Wednesday. Thanx Jerry.

A friend said his ProComp stabilizer started rusting prematurely, probably a good idea to add a coat of paint to a cheaper brand like that.

Patrick H I have a white one.. Well, it was until I painted it yesterday because it has a few chips and was kinda grungy looking. It's aftermarket, was on the Jeep when I bought it. Works fine. Steering dampers aren't as critical as shock absorbers. Any decent unit will work, as long as it's the proper length.

TJgunner The rubicon one is cheap, but then again . . . you get what you pay for sometimes too. Perhaps i'll just stick with the OME

UnlimitedRubicon I had a Quadratec gift certificate so I used it on an OMESD48 but haven't installed it yet.

JeepandMud I have a Pro Comp and so far with how much I've pounded it with rocks, mud, and water it's done wonders for me. I'll most likely end up buying a second just in case.

Arch Stanton At just under 74k, I've gone through three SS, and the last two have been Rancho. A mechanic recommended Monroe over Rancho, even though they're both made by the same company.

Greengoblin98 I'm running rubicon express stabilizer. Works like a dream!

Who runs what on their rig?

I have an OME right now, but the entire suspension is 7yrs old so its getting close to replacement time.

Do i keep with the OME or does anyone suggest something else? Rubicon?
