...You do not have Death Wobble... I bet you have terrain wobble .... Sand is very dense in some areas and then you hit a soft spot....blasting through it in 4 hi will make the front end shake like Death Wobble..... Driving down the road in 2wd and hitting a pot hole and having the front end go all over the place is Death Wobble

You don't want to experience Death Wobble . I have and it scared the sh** out of me . Uncontrollable shake of the steering wheel and it comes right out of your hand . Hitting the brakes and trying to stop the steering wheel couldn't get it under control . Had to wait for the truck to slow down on it's own before it stopped .
