My parents used an anti sway setup on their pop-up camper they added a/c to the camper caused it to sway and the kit fixed it right up

I don't know what that POS is but if you are towing more than 3,000 lbs with a ZJ then you should be using a weight distributing hitch. They look like this and make a HUGE difference:

A weight distributing hitch puts the front of the towing vehicle to work in terms of balance and control. The sway kit is kinda like a shock absorber for side to side trailer action. Big difference.
