Steering stabilizer

When I got my jeep I alos got a 4WD.com dual steering stabilizer. I checked their website and cannot find one for the tj. Has anyone used this and could it just be packaged wrong. the PO said that he looked at it and couldn't figure out why it would work. He aslo admitted he didn't know much about mechanics.
I am starting to only believe there is only a single stabilizer. Please help I have parts I would love to install.

There are duals available but why would you need a dual stabilizer? Did the PO try to mask some vibes ?

No not any wobble he was just someone who was buliding a jeep from catalogs at the suggestion of some shop. I currently have a single by old man emu on it and it works fine but since I have that I figures why not because I think it would look cool. Essentially I want to do it bercause I can. Has anyone done this? Got pictures or intall advice? Thanks

Do not run a dual steering stabilizer. One, it just makes the power steering system have to work harder and get hotter to over come its added resistance. Two, your TJ and the tire size you have on it doesn't need dual stabilizers... there is no benefit to them. Three, they aren't even "stabilizers"... they are more correctly called steering dampers and their purpose is to isolate road shock from the steering system and the steering wheel. They are not really there to make your steering more stable as one might define that word.
