Pretty thorough video on the causes of death wobble based on their experience. Hopefully helpful for any of you experiencing it.

 
Good info

Every time I watch his videos I regret not getting a Velocity Blue when I had the chance.

As long as I have been on this great forum, I have yet to read about anyone experiencing “death wobble” in a Tremor.

In 9 months have I missed something? I think there was one guy with (3) posts who had a non Tremor F250 who wrote something about DW and was never heard from again.
Maintain your front end, rotate and balance your tires, keep things tight and properly torqued. Remember its a straight axle. Enjoy your Tremor! ????

Yes, I was surprised to see DW in regards to the Tremor!

My Jeep TJ acquired the DW. Very scary in that short wheelbase vehicle! It started around 90,000 miles. I put the mild 3 1/2” lift and 285 tires on it at 16,000 miles. The solution to the DW for the TJ was replacing the front end components with Currie products, bushings, shocks all the way around, steering stabilizer, new tires and alignment (needed them either way).
Essentially, it was pretty straightforward. Replaced what was worn out with quality stuff, an expert alignment and new tires properly mounted and balanced by a quality shop.
Death Wobble cured.
