My 2000 tj seems to wander at higher speeds. At about 60 mph it seems to wander on the highway. I am constantly ajusting my steering. What should i check or replace to try to correct this? I recently put 31inch procomp mt's on it and dont think i have ever had it aligned. The alignment is not off though. What should i do? Or will i have to live with this????

How do you know your alignment isn't off? Go to some place like Tires Plus. They give free alignment checks and they are cheap if you need to have it done.

Most of the time with a wandering jeep you should check the track bar and make sure the joints are tight and don't move or allow the axle to move back and forth, ball joints, and all 4 tie rod ends. Most commonly it is a combination of a couple of those items.

Try rotating and re-balancing your tires, if it goes away, you know it was tire related. The steering stabilizer only dampens the affects of the road, it does not control your steering. If you have the stock stabilizer, it wouldn't hurt to go with a larger one, but here again, it has nothing to do with your Jeep wandering on the road. Friend of mine had this problem on his Rubi, and after he bought new tires, it went away. He was due for a set, and I realize that you said you just got your tires, but that doesn't mean that they are perfect. Start with the rotation and rebalancing, and see what that does.
