DW after taking it off road

Took my Jeep out on some trails this afternoon (some hills, some mud...but nothing major). After I got off the trail and was heading down the freeway when I got to 55 the wobble started, after 5-10 seconds it would go away until I sped up or slowed down then it started again. I've read over the DW thread and eyeballed everything I could, and don't see anything wrong.

Any suggestions on any common problems that I might check for after getting off the trails??

Did you get into a lot of mud, enough to where you got it caked on the inside of your wheels? This could throw the balance of your wheels off.

Yes there is quite a bit of mud on the underside, mostly on the drivers side. That was my first thought, but wasn't sure if it was enough to cause that, so I'm glad to hear that. I was just out picking the mud off of it, at least whats dried up and chips right off. By morning it should be completely dried and fall right off, so I'll see if that helps.

You may have to take it to a car wash and use a pressure washer to get all of that stuff off. When you balance tires, you are only working with onces. It doesn't take much to make your wheels go wooble wooble.
