If it was a trail rig, it probably does not have sway bars. I would start with adding them.

Well you have a truck built for trails and or strictly offroad. Now you want an onroad princess? Buy another jeep and make it a road warrior. Thats why i have a wrx semi built for pavement and a jeep to ass around in.

Check to see if you have a rear sway bar. I've heard of people taking them out if it's just a trail rig. If it's still in place then I would invest in some bigger sway bars... Also see if the sway bar end links are buttoned up, could be disconnected. Just putting in my thoughts, hopefully I helped out a little bit. Good luck
