"Death wobble" still occuring on2013 models?

My first post and I have a question for y'all. I'm looking into ordering a wrangler unlimited rubicon 4 door and was wondering if anyone knew for sure if jeep fixed the track bar issues that were causing some jeeps to get the "death wobble". I'm aware from reading multiple posts on this site and others that it is most likely to occur on lifted jeeps; however, there are a few cases where it has been reported on stock jeeps.

My plan is to keep my jeep stock, for now at least. Does anyone have any definitive answer on this?

Also does jeep now use the correct size bolts that were once "upgraded bolt package"

I'm looking forward to using my jeep as it was made to do by getting it dirty and having fun off the concrete

Thanks in advance!

Death wobble can happen on any solid axle vehicle when front end components loosen or wear. Can it built better upfront to hopefully decrease/delay the occurrence.? Sure. Can it be prevented? Nope.
Thank you Dave Cole, Dynomax, Falken and all the Spec Class sponsors!!
