I thought it would never happen to me.......

Today on the way home from a buddy's house I hit a big bump on an exit ramp.
When I was getting tossed side to side violently, I knew immediately what it was.

Death Wobble has been beaten to death, but geez! it is a scary thing. It has only happened to me one time. Is this something I should expect to happen every time I hit the same bump on that exit ramp? If there are ways or methods of speeds or angles to hit these problem spots, does anyone have any tips???

Thanks for the feedback!

Yep. crawl under the jeep and tighten the snot out of everything. Check your shocks, their bushings, trackbar bushings, and pretty much everything else.

Something is worn or something is loose. Do an inspection after every wheeling and at oil change time.
