Not mine, but a buddies, he told me at highway speed you hit a dip or pothole with one tire and he gets the death wobble, and he thought he was going to die. From my early jeep days I knew just the right stretch of road with a pothole to hit to give me the dw. And my god I honestly thought the truck was going to self destruct, a full on tires near off the ground violent shake. Scrared the piss out of me.... anyone run into this? I'm thinking upgrade the track bar and steering stabilizer. The whole front end checks out golden, as does alignment specs.

Loose track bar? Bigger stabalizer?

My chev had it till I put a new stabilizer on it. no more problem.

common problem. You can get an aftermarket trac bar from BDS. Fixes the problem.

Bfg's are just shit tires on heavy trucks. Heard of it way to many times.

Thats is why I guessed tires before spending tons of cash on nothing
