    Hi all,

    I have a new "06 Jeep Wrangler X" (Great Jeep!) with a grand total of
    6192 miles.

    When I drive about 60 mph on the freeway, the steering wheel wants to
    "shimmy", i.e. turn to the left, then to the right and vice versa. I
    have to hang tightly on this steering wheel or slow down to about 50
    mph. I could really end up in the next lane, to the right or left.
    It's really noticeable with the cross winds or on windy days. Slower
    speeds on the regular city streets, it's OK.

    I had it to the dealership last month and they test drove it and they
    found nothing wrong. I also use this same jeep, to tow behind my RV.

    Do I need more air pressure in the two front tires of this jeep, or
    what else could be going on here????

    There is a NHTSA ODI - Technical Service Bulletin out there and I'm
    going to follow up on it.
    Make : JEEP
    Model : WRANGLER
    Year : 2006
    Service Bulletin Num : 1900306
    Date of Bulletin: AUG 30, 2006
    NHTSA Item Number: 10020334

    Has anyone experience this same problem, if so...how did you solve

    : -)
