slight wheel and body wobble after hard rock park.
So driving home on the highway after some slight rocks.. Hills.. And heavy mud and my steering wheel would shake evenly back and forth slightly at a good speed. Also, I'm only in the front obviously but it felt as if the jeep body was rocking/vibrating back and forth in harmony with the steering wheel.

Pulled over and did a quick comparison with my brothers under carriage and nothing looks damaged from the eye.

Will go home and clean errr up, get the caked mud off maybe un balancing the wheels. See if there's any play in the shafts.

Not to sure on how to check the U joints?

Will also check the ball joints, any easier way than taking off the wheels?

Seems to come and go very often above 40+

Any Insight would be awesome.

My guess is the mud. You don't really wear out parts in a short trip, but I'm sure it's possible if they were already going.

Agree, its most likely the mud. In the front it can get caked into the rotors and any voids in the back of the wheels pretty good. If its still there after a good cleaning, check that you didnt knock off any wheel weights. If you aired down and did much bouncing to get over stuff, couldve spun a tire on the rim, too.

Woo-hoo! It was just the mud caked on there. Idk if any of you have j been to hard rock in Ocala FL but the damn mud is filled with tiny rocks that are just killer killer to get off. Like concrete.
