And to answer your questions:

do I always need to use it with 你

No. You can say: 让他有问题尽管问我. And from the example you can see that it can also used with some other pronouns, or with the subject omitted.

can I omit 就

Not in your example sentence, but it can be used without 就. See the examples above.

can I omit 吧

Yes. And "吧" can be omitted from your example sentence.


No, the simplest form is 尽管+verb.


It is a little aggressive. A boss might say 尽管做, 出事我负责.
