Stabilizer advice

I have a 12 Rubi JK, 2.5" RK lift on 35" MT ATZ.
The previous owner installed a Skyjacker Dual SS, similar to the pic below (which is not my jeep). I've already done the research and figured out that it's not needed.
I'm looking to remove this one and put on a single SS.
Any recommendations on which one? Procomp? Synergy? OME? Others?
And do I need a kit / bracket?
And where is the best install location?

Any advice is helpful. And since I have to put a single back on, I'd like to do it the best way.

Maybe my eyes are going bad, but it looks like those two SS are all connected only to the tie rod....???
edit....be glad that is not your JK, I am convinced those are for show only as the ends need to be attached to a fixed point, as it looks, they are are just attached to the tie rod....what a joke if that is true.

Yeah, maybe just the angle of the photo is bad...to the OP, loose them and just get an OEM SS...that is all that is really needed unless you want a bling name brand.
What tricked my eyes is that it looks like two black U bolts on the bottom of the tie rod at the name plate...oh well, comes with age.

Since you're going back to a single you should definitely go with a relocation bracket. You'll need the mount that attaches to the tie rod wether stock or after market. There's many to choose from. I have the OME SS and relocation kit. On the tie rid end of the SS I'm using the stock bracket.

I just chose that pic as an example of the skyjacker dual ss. I'm not sure how it's installed on that Jeep, but that's not the point.

So a relocation bracket and a single stabilizer is all I need? I don't have any stock parts, I'm assuming. Unless the dual SS is using a stock bracket.

Is the OME only yellow?

I'll take a pic of my setup during lunch time today to see what is stock and not.

You only need one and might as well relocate it. OME is only yellow. All the kits are different and come with different parts. OME kit will lack the mount for the tie rod end.

There is a difference, OEM = Original Equipment Mfgr, OME = Old Man Emu....just to clarify.

"OOOWWWWW MY FREAKIN' EYES!!!" Skycrapper - what a friggin' joke... what the hell is that frankenstein setup? Lol.

If you're looking for a replacement, I'd go to the Synergy site, get their relocation setup - tie rod clamp and axle bracket. Then any SS will do, even the OEM - I suppose you could even reuse one of your Skycrapper ones (as long as you paint it and toss the ugly boot).

Oh, and post a destruction video of the other SS and their advertising tag on youtube...

Bottom line any decent stabilizer will do, you only need one, duals waste money. Relocate it above bar. FYI: A well setup jeep doesn't need any, they are there to dampen any inputs introduced by uneven roads etc. They do not correct any suspension issues like shimmy, vibrations or DW, they only hide them while the problem gets worse.

I ordered this.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/rough-c...-rc-87319.html

That should let me take off the existing dual SS and this kit has both the brackets I need for a higher relocation.

Right?

It will work. What FB said, you really don't need one when set up properly.
