Thanks everyone...I love to overthink even the simplest choices in Jeep life.

Jerry Bransford Avoid installing a dual-stabilizer. They only make the PS system work a lot harder and they aren't needed for any tire sizes typically run on our TJs. In fact, running a dual vs. single steering stabilizer with big tires on a hot day on a tight twisty trail could be the difference in an overheated steering system that refuses to work or even boils its PS fluid over and one that works just fine.

03 RUBI Skyjacker make a good stablizer, as does Rancho. You shouldn't need a dual setup.

Steering stabilizers?

Anyone recommend a good steering stabilizer for a '97 TJ with 33's and a Skyjacker 4" Short Arm Lift Kit? They all look the same to me...I'm thinking of going with the yellow OME for $74. And whats the difference with a single stabilizer and a dual stabilizer? Some brands say that the dual stabilizer will only work with a 4" lift kit...why is that?
