If everything in your front end is set up right, you shouldn't need a steering stabilizer.

It is now, aligned, straight, no bump steer, but I bought the thing months ago and now I can't return it so I might as well replace the old one.

Just ordered this:
http://www.amazon.com/BV7325B-3-2-In...ype=automotive

With the rearview camera, for 108 dollars shipped. Great ****ing deal.

Girlfriend wants to buy me a birthday present, debating on if I want her to get me a header panel, or a passenger side fender. Probably header panel.

You could buy my old one, no cd player though, it's all bluetooth and has an ipod dock and crap.

Seriously considering mounting my "rear view" camera under/near the front bumper to use as a spotter for obstacles.

Got that new head unit in, hooked up the camera to a switch. Buddy and I couldn't get it to work, turns out it needs to be in gear (any) for it to work. I have no idea how the head unit even knows if the jeep is in gear since we literally didn't use anything from the parking system. Oh well, will post pics after I get the camera mounted where I want it.
