Loving my new Wrangler

I just bought my first Jeep a little over 2 weeks ago and I love it. 2007 Wrangler Unlimited X. Definately one of the best vehicles I've owned, but... Today I found out it suffers from the death wobble I've been reading about on these forums. I see a few suggestions on how to remedy it, but since I've only had the vehicle less than a month, am I supposed to see if the dealership I purchased it from is able to resolve the issue? I am not sure what to do since I bought it used. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks.

Definitely back to the dealer. They should be responsible for it, assuming warranty and all that.

The dealership did a GREAT job fixing this. The suspension now feels amazing no matter what I drive over. I loved my new Wrangler since I drove it off the lot, now it's even better! It's a great feeling to enjoy what you drive!
