welcome to the forum, fix it before you lift it, check out your tie rod ends to make sure they arent loose...just give the front end a good once over, tie rod, drag link, pitman arm, ball joints, u joints etc

Welcome!

Dw is causesd by something being loose or worn in the suspension. That's why it's so hard to diagnose, there is no one cause of it. Do what ^ said and check for play in all of tour suspension components.

Welcome to the Forum

If you have checked all suspension components and can't find anything loose or worn, maybe it's your tires/balance/alignment. Replacing the rubber on mine eliminated DW, but I also had it balanced and aligned by a company who knew what they were doing at the same time.

Just something else to look at.

Time for a rotation and possibly check for balancing perhaps depending on how many miles on them.

Post up a thread in the TJ section with your price range and what kind of setup you think you want once you get your dw figured out. Good luck!
