you've got the dreadfull death wobble! Could be a multitude of things - tyre balance, bent tie rod, your dampner, wheel alignment Its a matter of working through till you nail it. Its a bitch, but thats life,

Does it have any lift on it? If so how much and is there an SYE or t-case drop? When it starts to wobble, does it feel like it's coming from anywhere in particualr (like a certain wheel)?

Eliminate the obvious stuff first...tire balance, alignment, make sure everything (heim joints, u-joints, tie rod, etc) is tight. Like wolfe said, death wobble is a bitch to track down...you just have to be systematic about it.

I had a similar problem about 4 months ago. My lug nuts had backed off on one of my front wheels. I tightened them back up and it has been fine since.
