I'm about to put in an order for 37's with a local shop and they're recommending I add a steering stabilizer so I don't experience the death wobble when tossing the 37's on the 392 with the stock lift.

I'm curious...

Is a steering stabilizer a necessity when adding 37s on our 392s?

My Jeep is my daily driver around town.

Thanks in advance!

They do help... think of them as a lateral shock absorber - they cushion the side to side movement between the two wheels, but they don't "fix" any underlying issue if it's worn joints, unbalanced wheel, misalignment - or even the most common, incorrect air pressure. As long as the install of the 37's is done clean and there are none of the above issues, no, won't "need" one, but I prefer them (Fox as opposed to stock). The larger the tire, the larger the amplification of the road jarring the wheel.

Thank you!
 
death wobble is primarily from worn out ball joints and castor that is too high, everyone will tell you all kinds of crazy shit.

If death wobble came from running 37's without an upgraded stabilizer there would be tens of thousands of Jeeps in the US with death wobble and there isn't.

I've had 37s on my 392 for over 1K miles now and have had no steering related issues, just decreased gas milage.
 
I have been running 40's on my Gladiator for 2 years now with completely stock steering and it has been perfect both on and off road. I have road tripped it from Chicago to Orlando and I have never had an issue. Definitely not necessary!

Dont drink the Kool aid, same here
 
Yep, no problem here either. Been running 37" KM3s for 4K miles now.
 
37" Mickeys on for 100 miles no issues and ran her to 99. Was surprised alignment was still straight.

Stock suspension? Any rubbing? Factory wheels?
Stock suspension, no changes yet. No rubbing, bumping, etc. Running 12.50 x 17 Hutchinson RockMonster wheels designed for JKs, JL & JTs shoed with 37” Goodrich KM3s to fit. I have been off road with the Jeep but nothing narly. I call this my gentlemen's Jeep, no pinstriping and no bottom scrapes allowed when off road. I have another Jeep for the rough and dirty fun stuff.
