Death Wobble Observed

So, my wife and I are on 78 in PA on Thanksgiving going about 70 when some idiot driving a 95 Wrangler blows by at about 80+. Couldn't care less except as it passes, both front tires begin to "wobble" oscillate and looked like they were going to fly off of the hubs. If I didn't see it I wouldn't have believed how bad it actually is. Anyway, a-hole slows to about 40 and wobble stops. Hopefully his drawers went through the experience and a safe speed was then maintained.

My first dealings with DW were in an 89 Bronco II that we did a solid axle swap and then mounted some 40" gumbo mudders on bead locks. We were only doing 25mph on the maiden voyage and it literally scared the poop out of the driver.
