What is it? Exact Center is a steering stabilizer but it's different from anything else on the market today.

Why is it unique? It's proactive. While other systems slowly ramp up forces to control steering, they do nothing if you are traveling straight down the road. As you turn, these stabilizers will begin to push back and help control your steering but only after it's wandered. Exact Center uses all of its force to prevent any movement, resulting in a tight, responsive feel. In summary, others reactively increase steering control as you move away from center, whereas Exact Center proactively stops poor handling characteristics before they begin.

Why is this important? Other stabilizers have a soft center, giving a spongy feel that allows the vehicle to wander. Ramping up force gradually like this means that there is more play, more wander and more white-knuckling. Exact Center provides more of a sports-car-like feel and significantly reduces driver fatigue.

Will this help with "Death Wobble"? Yes. Some vehicles, under just the right circumstances, will develop a harmonic vibration, resulting in the front tires violently racking from side to side. This is known as "Death Wobble" and although rare, it is well known within the Jeep community. Exact Center stops the forces that cause it, greatly reducing the chance of it ever happening.

What vehicles will benefit from Exact Center? Most motorhomes, trucks, and Jeeps, as well as towed vehicles behind RVs.

Why would I want a steering stabilizer on my towed vehicle? Just like a shopping cart, your front tires want to spin around while backing up. As a result, you can easily damage your towed vehicle or the towing system due to jackknifing. Exact Center resists those forces, thereby allowing most towed vehicles to be backed up like a trailer. This is a game changer.

This is actually pretty interesting. Basically a mini twin steering stabilizer setup packaged into a single damper.

Better than a single Monotube because it should eliminate the push from center.

Not sure how the auto-centering would feel compared to a neutral or through shaft damper.

We ran one on a Race Jeep and its was great. Driver wanted more pressure. Just like a driver to want more.

When will it be available for the JL? The website says Jan 2022, but is that Jan 1, Jan 15, Jan 31? It will most likely sell out fast, thus wanting to know the specific date.
The units will be available on the first. Brackets are set for mid Jan ship dates. Roadmaster is taking orders.

Only issue I see while viewing above video is it looks like the drivers mount is a little low for comfort.
