Back in 2016 was my "big" first trail damage.

It was my stock stabilizer and was easily fixable on the trail. However, the ding to the rock caused a slow leak which meant replacement time. I bought a stabilizer that was seated above the draglink to get it out of the way of those pesky rocks.
A year after the new stabilizer was installed I added the Yeti steering system by Steer Smarts to my Jeep.

Once the steering components were installed I needed to get an alignment at a different shop. The shop that did the alignment didn't adjust one of the bolts on the draglink back to the exact place. So when it came to my max flex in my Jeep while I was on the trails that bolt pushed into the steering stabilizer.
This caused a very slow leak, a two year leak. So once again time for replacement. This time before we installed the part I painted it purple! It's the Rubicon Express Steering Stabilizer. It's a super easy install by just removing two bolts and replacing the part.
