Cool Death Wobble Witness

Wow I just witnessed first hand Death Wobble hit a unmodified Jeep JKU this morning on the ride to work on the Taconic State parkway. I've heard about it here alot, but to actually see it happen in front of you is CRAZY! Damn, I felt bad for the poor guy, his rig wasnt even modified with bigger tires or anything, like looked like a stock 4dr.

I'd say it was me but I just put in a synergy bolt kit and my Jeep is at the shop getting a new gas tank! But I do drive that road everyday to work, maybe I'll see ya one day.

Good point! It can be a scary proposition to even see it happen to a fellow Jeeper, specially in traffic, albeit not even close to experiencing it directly.

When I had my DW I kinda laughed during it because the oncoming drivers(2 lane road) eyes all got HUGE and they slowed and pulled way over!
