Precept prestige stabilizers

Has anyone added front and rear stabilizers to a precept prestige?
Wondering if it is worth the investment. I have driven mine 10k on the factory Jride. Seems to handle decently.
Any opinions welcomed

I would recommend installing a Safe T Plus stabilizer.

By "stabilizers" are you referring to sway bars? The chassis should have sway bars already front and rear. Front axle should have a trac bar as well. so need to know more about what you mean with regards to "stabilizer".

If you don't have any specific issues with the handling, then I wouldn't do anything other than what Mike suggested. The steering stabilizer is basically a shock absorber that helps provide tension to the steering system and help maintain control with blowouts on the front end.

If you have a specific driving characteristic that bothers you, let us know what they are and we can recommend a suspension upgrade that addresses that.

Thanks guys
I just contacted Safety-T-plus
And ordered one.
Installation video looks pretty basic.
Looking forward towards my next trip.

Recommend Safe-t- plus steering damper first then a rear Trac bar.

I have installed, steering stabilizer, track bar, front sumo s and dual front and rear shocks…handles and drives great, noticeable improvements in handling and control in windy and big trucks around ya. Don’t believe I will do rear sumos, handles so much better today versus when we first brought er home. Have a 36b Precept Prestige.

First trip after upgrades

Thought my 36U handled pretty well straight from Jayco.

Just took my first trip with the Safty-T-Plus and rear track bar installed. I did the installation myself. I spent about 4 hours lying on my back. The stabilizer was easy. The tract bar took more time but still not bad. The dealer wanted $500 plus shop supplies and tax.
Boy what an improvement. Drove across Iowa and Nebraska on I80. What a difference. Was able to relax and enjoy the drive. The handling is at least 50% better than before.
Thanks for the advice.

Glad it worked out well for you. To me the Trac Bar makes a huge difference and is well worth the money/effort.
