Smile Minnesota girl via Texas

Howdy dontcha know?

I'm the frustrated yet proud owner of a 2002 Jeep Wrangler TJ Sport. I bought it new as a welcome home gift to myself after a deployment to Afghanistan. Yes, I have the all too famous Death Wobble and with nearly 120K on the odometer, little things are starting to pop up. Little but expensive things. I figure it's time to start learning how to fix these things myself.

I love my Jeep and every time I think that I may trade it in for something else, I get a little teary eyed and quickly banish the thought. Since the likelihood of me getting rid of it before it turns to powder is unlikely, it is time I start showing it a bit of TLC and turn it into the machine I know it wants to be. Enough of these stock parts!

I'm glad to have found this forum and hope that I will be able to learn a thing or two from the very knowledgeable members. Nice to meet you all.

Welcome to the madness! I strongly suggest joining a local jeep club.....they are a great resource a info as well a friends to go wheelin with. Also I am sure being a female you wont have any issue finding some young strappin lads to lend you a hand with repairs/diagnosing the problem.

Well my name is John and I'm a Retired USAF PJ and I have a cure for your death wobble it's a cheap fix and an easy one also it's called "Innovative Balancing" Copy & Paste this Link:
http://www.innovativebalancing.com/index.html
and you can look up your tires and order from them or call and give them your info and they will send you what you need to get it done. If you ever need anything else my email is: johnlturek@gmail.com I've fixed 12 Jeeps with the death wobble with this product good luck and last you only use this NO Wheel Weights Needed have them all removed and this poured in your tires!
