Looking for input on a stabilizer shock

I just had a bds 3" lift installed with 2.0 fox shocks I was thinking about installing a 2.0 fox stabilizer shock but it's gas and I have heard it's better to use a hydraulic stabilizer any suggestions.

You heard correctly. The stock one will work just fine.

My stock steering stabilizers have all failed after time with my previous lifted trucks, and recently did so withy JKU. Use them until they start leaking is my suggestion, unless money isn't an issue. I'm using a Teraflex SS and it seems to work fine.

I would go with a factory replacement like the Rugged Ridge Hydraulic Steering Stabilizer. They're pretty inexpensive and will work for you. If you're steering system is set up properly and not worn out, you'll be fine using the OE replacement. Let me know if you have any questions!

I got a Monroe stabilizer from advance auto. It was about $32 and works great. Look up the reviews.

I know this sounds petty but I would like to find something that will come close to matching my 2.0 fox shocks visual wise.

I would get an OE replacement and scuff it and paint it. It's not petty to want your rig to look as good as it performs! It shouldn't take much time to prep and paint and I think it would be cool to have everything matching.
