Steering problem

So I went offroading today and got stuck in mud, ended up sinking to about the top of my tires. A friend towed me out with his f350, using a chain. Im not sure what he hooked it up to as I have no recovery points, but it was on the drivers side. When I was driving home, I noticed that I was getting death wobble when I hit 45-50mph....what do I do to fix this. My 96 ZJ is stock, no lift so I have no clue.

I think you might just have alot of mud built up in your tires. Sometimes when you go in deep mud it will cake to the inside and cause bad DW because they are out of balance.

Death wobble is more commonly caused by a variety of things out of spec mostly in the front end.
I doubt that it is being caused from the rear end unless ypu have a busted shock or sway bar end link.
I second the mud on the tires, and it being only the beginning of it, as it is usually a sign of worn out parts like track bar bushings, or the like.
