Right now I'm running 7.0.6 on my iPad Air and I have a ton of crashes in Safari and I've even had a handful of random reboots of the entire iPad.

I don't have anything installed besides Cydia and iFile (and ScummVM emulator) so I don't think it's the jailbreak that's causing it, but instead I think 7.0.6 is buggy.

Would upgrading to 7.1.1 fix a lot of these instabilities?

Probably, and you can re-jailbreak .1.1 anyway so there aren't any issues here really

Yes. I just upgraded to 7.1.1 and jailbroke it. Night and day, specially safari performance and tab reloading. Not perfect, but pretty good

If whatever tweaks you use compatible with iOS 7.1.1 its a no brainer.

As for me... I plan on staying on 7.0.4. Prowidgets isn't compatible. And OS Experience is not working although the dev is pushing for an update.

I say go for it. My iPhone 5 is running much faster and the battery life has improved significantly. Same with my iPad 3rd gen, runs like it did on iOS 6.
