When cruising on highway, the front tires start to shake violently back and forth. Not to be confused with mild shimmy or tire out of balance, this is a violent shake. Read sticky at top of thread list.

If that happened to me I would definitely need to have my seats cleaned!! And I don't scare easy at all but that would pucker up my butt hole... Lol, does that only happen with the new JK or can it happen to any jeep model?

I had NASTY death wobble for 3 months because my tires were unbalanced and I didn't want to pay to have bald tires balanced when I was upgrading. It would shake VIOLENTLY at 48-53mph I just learned to not go between that speed. If i gased it hard at 48 until I got to 55mph it wouldn't shake and if I braked from 55 to 45 I could skip death wobble :) yea I know I'm crafty...
