Most recommended steering stabilizer?

One old "Jeeper" guy told me he had mounted TWO steering stabilizers on his Wrangler to keep the wobble away.

My Death Wobble hasn't come back since I got rid of my old tires (looked inside and saw where a couple had signs of seperation) and got a set of new Firestone Destination A/T's.

But - I was wondering what's the most recommended steering stabilizer for the Wrangler?

None!

I haven't run a stabilizer since I upgraded my steering and have had no problems whatsoever.

Running dual stabilizers is a poser/show truck idea. If you can't keep your steering under control with one stabilizer you've got other problems that need attending to.

Sounds good. Can you give some details on your upgrade? I might consider that myself...

Well, I upgraded to the Rugged Ridge HD steering after I bent my stock tie rod, but in all reality if you're still rocking your stocker and it's true then you might not need one anyway. The SS is just there to take the general shimies and shakes out of everyday driving so your arm doesn't get tired holding the wheel straight all day. I think that comes down to personal preference myself, but you technically shouldn't need one if everything is in proper working order (i.e. ball joints, TREs, suspension bushings, etc.)

If you decide to go with a steering stabilizer, I'd recommend the Rancho 5000.

As stated above, dual stabilizers are not needed. If you are going to replace it just pick it one up from NAPA or the like. All stabilizers are essentially the same thing with a 50:50 valving. No need to waste the money on something that is gonna work the same way as something cheaper.
