But I bought it and installed it so it must be the best thing out there /s.
blah blah. Best thing? Nope. Does it do exactly what it’s designed for? Yep. But I love the guys who drink the coolaid and think you need to entirely re-engineer the entire suspension for a 2 inch lift. If that makes you feel better about spending all that money so be it. It’s not a formula 1 car where every mm is going to affect its driveability. Can you change the suspension in a Jeep so much to drive like a race car? Yup. Does the average person who wants a lift to off road and still handle like it does stock need to do that? Nope. That’s what the Mopar lift accomplishes. You’re simply trying to suggest that all of those added components are NECESSARY which isnt true. If my Jeep drives just as good as it does stock then that’s good enough for me. If stock isn’t good enough for you then the Mopar lift is no WORSE so what’s your point? You’re basically saying you need to fix the stock geometry The bottom line is you can spend all you want chasing whatever ride you want but if the Mopar lift performs just as well as stock what’s the issue? Or are your feelings hurt because it’s not labeled as the best? Hmm.

So how much experience do you have lifting Jeeps? What kits do you have experience with?

2018 JLUR with Mopar 2” and 37” milestar Patagonia MT.

I am getting death wobble when hitting small pot holes. I am not sure it is as bad as I have seen in videos but it is still bad.
It appears Jeep’s bandaid is to replace the stabilizer. This seems like a BS fix.
I am not ready to spend $2k on Steer Smart to fix something that should not be a thing after spending $50k on a SUV.
Replacing the stabilizer is a small spend and if it fixes the problem I am all in.

Trying to decide between the Fox single or the Rough Country Dual system.

Any thoughts or advice welcome.
Look at this video of my 2018 JL 2dr Rubicon that could be made to death wobble on demand. All you had to was hit a hole in the road we found above 40 miles an hour and it would do it 7 out of 7 tries. We show it without Exact Center and with Exact Center. It would also do it with the factory stabilizer if you went doing near 50 mph. It would start sometimes and just over 40 mph.

Death Wobble starts at about 25 seconds, keep watching as the mechanics of Exact Center follow.

Here is an MJ 1988 Comanche pickup with 11" lift. Why 11" my grandson needs it to look right with 35" x 12.5 tires. He has an early Exact center prototype installed with 125 lbs pressure. He says it handles like an SUV and he drives it 85 on I-75, also he is 26 and not shy when driving. It scares me sitting still. The picture was taken before the custom front driveshaft was installed.

I never had death wobble like you see in the videos but just a minor, minor shimmy at certain speeds and with off axis bumps that went away on its own. Mainly fixed it with adjustable control arms and a little more caster. The off axis bumps issue was fixed with a Nexus 2.2.
Exact Center by Roadmaster will not fix Death Wobble but in tests, it stopped the movement Death Wobble needs (first Ossicilation) so it can not happen, no fix it just keeps it from happening.
Watch the video, see how Death Wobble is stopped, see the mechanics of the device in the animation. This is the base version we have done 330 psi units on 40000 lb class A diesel pushers at that pressure nothing except power steering can override the hold. A very simple idea that could save the straight axle. https://www.roadmasterinc.com/products/rss/exactcenter.php
