No it is NOT. This is quite different. Reports are that it works very well.

I had a CounterAct system on my Jeep TJ for about 3 years. I kept it very clean and well undercoated. It was hard to tell if it really worked though...

Mike,

How many "Capacitor Couplers" did your system have?

Do you still have it?

I just submitted a request for a quote for my two trucks. Seems like they have a specific product for Land Rovers (and steel-aluminium connections).

Mike,

The system I had on my TJ used one capacitor. I believe the Land Rover and Hummer systems have two capacitors. I am thinking about buying an additional capacitor and re-installing it on my D90...Also, I researched the patent on this system years ago. I am more mechanical than electrical minded but it makes sense how it works.


Cheers...

the HLR-4 for the Rover has 4 capacitive couplers.

They (counteractrust) appear to running a pretty decent promotion - 30% off for some TV show - "2 guys garage" or something.

Email from couneractrust:


Mike

Sorry to be so long getting back to you. This is our annual shutdown for refit and
inventory so we are really short-handed.

We have a special offer right now that beats the AAA special an I have pasted it below
along with info on models for Land Rover

Hello,

We would like to thank you for your interest in our unique CounterAct electronic anti-
corrosion product.


We hope that you had the chance to view our product on the recent airing of the “Two
Guys Garage” show on Speedchannel. If you have e-mailed us with a specific request
please bear with us as we have had literally thousands of inquiries following Sam and
Dave’s use of our product on their show. Our products will again appear on TGG this
fall as well as Speedchannel's "Truck Universe" if you missed us this time look for us
the next time around.

Should you wish to review many of the magazine and newspaper articles regarding
CounterAct’s proven effectiveness please follow this link to our website

http://www.counteractrust.com/what%20others.htm

If you are inquiring about our specialty systems for commercial and industrial
applications such as fire trucks ambulances mining vehicles, amusement park
structures, port facility equipment or aviation please submit a separate e-mail with more
details of your specific application

In order to address all our inquiries in a timely manner, we have included information
relating to most passenger vehicle including yours in this e-mail.

CounterAct is normally sold and installed through local agents and authorized dealers.
Unfortunately we currently have no agents in your immediate area. The good news is
that we are currently offering this special limited time discount for self-installers in order
to familiarize the maximum number of people with our product’s many benefits

CounterAct builds 5 primary models for over the road passenger vehicles:

1.THE PA-1 (PREMIUM AUTO): RECOMMENDED FOR ALL AVERAGE SIZE CARS
WHETHER OF FOREIGN OR NORTH AMERICAN MANUFACTURE.

2.THE GSL-2: RECOMMENDED FOR ALL PICKUPS BOTH LARGE AND SMALL
(EXCLUDING TRUE FULL SIZE CREW AND QUAD CABS), MOST SUVS AND
LARGE VANS

3.THE CA-2: FOR OLDER VEHICLES WITH RUST REPAIRS OR WHICH HAD NO
ORIGINAL GALVANIZING OR WHICH HAVE SIMPLY EXHAUSTED ALL ORIGINAL
GALVANIZING

4.THE OR 4 / LT 4 SERIES: RECOMMENDED FOR FULL SIZE CREW AND QUAD
CAB PICKUPS, THE VERY LARGEST SUVS (EXAMPLE, EXCURSION AND YUKON
CLASS) IF USED EXTENSIVELY OR PRIMARILY OFF ROAD, ALL SUVS EQUIPPED
WITH SNORKELS OR SUVS EMPLOYED IN EXTREME OFF ROADING
CONDITIONS OR ENCOUNTERING FREQUENT BEACH AND SURF USE. ALSO
CAMPER CONVERSION VANS

5.HLR-4 SERIES: WE RECOMMEND THIS SYSTEM FOR THE HUMMER AND LAND
ROVER DUE TO DISSIMILAR METAL PROBLEMS BETWEEN THE FRAME AND
BODY.

In the event that you use your vehicle in an extremely corrosive environment, you may
elect to upgrade to a system intended for a larger vehicle. However we design these
systems with the most severe corrosion situations in mind so under most
circumstances our recommended systems should adequately meet your needs and we
pride ourselves in not causing anyone to pay for more rust protection than they need. Of
course two big advantages of CounterAct over traditional rustproofing are its cost
effectiveness and its reusability.

Currently we are offering in conjunction with our TV appearance our passenger vehicle
systems at a 30% discount. This offer includes complete installation instructions, the
self-installer kit and free delivery within North America. The systems are relatively
simple to install and require no special tools or expertise.

promotional pricing follows below.

PA-1 NORMALLY $299.95 PROMOTIONAL PRICE $209.95

CA-2 NORMALLY $349.95 PROMOTIONAL PRICE $244.95

Cool

Yup...that is the same "sale" promotion when I bought it years ago...

I wonder why we "the automotive enthusiast" community don't hear about it much?

rust is not a problem for all the "newer" vehicules (i.e. 15 year old?) My 17-year acura definitely does not have a spot of rust and has twice as many miles as my Defender (ok.... not quite, only 120K miles on the Acura, 80K on the D90). It was driven in the salt in the winter. I admit, it never went off-road (3 inches of clearance would be fun! ), but then I am not expecting the inside of the door to rust neither....

funny you all had to add electronics, mine came with rust protection as an option from the factory. Leaky swivels really make a big mess, not to mention the rear output shaft seal on the transfer box.

I am giving it a try as well. If the Brine Mining Industry "say" its effective, and since my truck leaks no oil(at least until today), its worth a shot in the dark.

Good Point! The stock V-8 used to leak from the start. The new diesel is spotless so-far - even the auto box doesn't leak!
