Steering stabilizer ????

I just lifted my 2014 unlimited sport JK 2.5" rubicon express with coils and mono tubes. Put 17" bmf wheels with 35x12.5 nitto trail grapplers... Do I need a steering stabilizer? What do they do? Pros vs cons???

? It doesn't already have one? On solid front axle vehicles, look up "death wobble".
Granted the steering stabilizer more or less covers for something else being loose, but if you ever encounter the death wobble, you'll know what is meant. The front end starts bouncing all over the place until you slow it down in a hurry.

Yours is new, so I can't imagine you'd need to replace the stock unit for a few years.
When it is time, suggest Bilstein, Rancho..
