Masking the possible DW?

I purchased this jeep for $4500.00 cash from a person in Orlando, FL. who was selling his sons Jeep. I haven't seen the suspension set up before on a Jeep, but I have seen it on pervious trucks I've owned. Is this a precursor to the Deathwable? I haven't had a problem with it yet, but the Jeep also had 36x13.50/15 Traxus tires on it before and now it is running 33x12.50/15. I planned on switching the tires out for 35x12.50/15 Mickey Thompson MTZ. Any suggestions would be helpful and if I remove one of the stabliizers, would it cause the DW to occur?

Lol, wow. I've seen some of the dual stabilizer setups before like the dumb one RC sells, but I've yet to see someone jury rig 3 stabilizers like that. I'd guess they were trying to fix something, and it very well could be DW or some other vibe.

Lol. Thats the biggest bandaid on a wobble problem ive ever seen. Personally I'de remove the one off the tie rod and drag link and replace the one in the factory location. If you pick up a wobble after that then go through the usual culprits to find the actual problem. Track bar movement etc. Or on the other hand if it drives fine with no wobble, let well enough alone till it becomes a problem. Up to you :P

I planned on removing them and seeing what I needed when I replace my tires and rims in the near future. Thanks for the advice Mudweiser!
