Death Wobble *Between 40-50mph*

I'm having a problem with the Death Wobble, but I've narrowed it down to when it's happening. It seems to only occur when I'm going between 40-50mph. I wanted to get other Jeep owners take on that before I spend a ton of money trying to narrow down the exact problem. Any help would be much appreciated!

Mine did exactly this with 33" tires. Shook really bad, but I could slow down or speed up to make it stop. Got them balanced and the problem went completely away.

Before you go throwing parts at it, sometimes just routine maintenance will fix your problem. You should regularly get your tires rotated and checked for balance.

Mine gets a little squirrely at about 60-65 if the road undulates
