Think of your tire as a ball. Pump that bad boy up and it'll bounce like no tomorrow! Now flatten it, less bounce right? Same principle applies. The high PSI, rough roads are gonna throw your WJ all over the road cause its bouncing.
245/75/16 at 28 p.s.i, I have messed with castor angle quite a bit but am still not sure if that could be causing it.

nothing else is loose? be 100% positive on that. have someone shake the steering wheel while you lay underneath. Trackbar's are majority of the time the problem, so pay key attention on it

New Jks track bar with kevins bushings, new jks adjustable lower control arms, one new Uca axle side bushing, new Iro SS, balanced tires, front end alignment. Its not a bad shimmy but my understanding is none is acceptable.

ahh well if its bump steer dont stress night and day about it. lot of us suffer bump steer but it doesnt evolve into DW. next thing on your list to check are your TRE's....1 out of 4 went on mine and DW was back. that and check your Ball joints.

Hey guys quick question

-Do the 00 and 01 WJs have the 0331 heads like the XJs and have issues?

Parents are looking at an 01 laredo and I couldn't remember if the dubs have that issue like the XJs did

This is personally my next step.

New SS, New trackbar KOR bushings, all else seems tight. DW was gone for about a week and now it reared it's ugly head again!!!!

Can't go above 50 and hit a bump without getting it now.
Trackbar is solid, had a buddy wiggle it like crazy while I was underneath and no movement at all.

I'm also getting bad vibes, but my caster is at +4.5. REALLY need to set my pinion angles perfectly and then see if the vibes are gone.

But, back to the DW...I'm hoping it's just a TRE or ball joint.

Cheers all.

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

You are correct, it should pull ever so slightly to the right side of the road.
