Death wobble!

So I have a 2000 GC with upcountry suspension and a 2" BB. Just mounted and balanced a set of 265/75/16's today and on my way home....massive death wobble.

I'm already planning on getting a better steering stablizer and trackbar.

So where in Des Moines should I take it for diagnosis or alignment?

I'm not sure if Ice Truck Works is still around in Des Moines, they might be able to help.

Ice went out of business a few years ago.

Yep. I'm just glad I do all my own work and have access to my old mans shop and all of his equipment.

Problem solved. Ended up being the tires I got off craigslist (first big mistake!!!) were bad and not strong enough. Replaced them with brand new Kelly Safari TSR's. Also added some Rancho 5000 series shocks, Rough Country SS, all new tie rod ends, JKS adj. trackbar, and an alignment. I'm glad this problem is behind me. And I learned alot about my jeep.
