Fat Bike Carbon Bar Question

I just purchased a 2022 Farley 9.6 and I was thinking of replacing the AL bars w/ Carbon. The question is: do I need to replace my AL Stem with Carbon as well?

No, most mnt bikes have an alum stem and carbon bars. I am also upgrading my 22 Farley with a carbon bar and seat post.
