A wobble, but not a death wobble???

I'm looking to buy my first wrangler! Yay! I test drove an 06 golden eagle that I fell in love with.
The only issue I had was that it seemed to skip around a bit from left to right. It happens at all speeds. It doesn't shake like all of the death wobble descriptions, but just feels like it's shifting. A bit loose maybe.
The seller said that this is just how they are, and maybe he is right, but confirmation from experts would help settle the concearn.
Any help would be great!

I'm looking for one too, and I've only test driven on very windy days. With the short wheelbase, they got tossed around quite a bit.

is it a stock Jeep? They aren't the most sturdy, but it could be an alignment issue, or it could be nothing.
