No death wobble. I just use it to get to my hunting and fishing spots. Backroads in national forest and BLM land. No muddin or crawlin. However, with the stock rake even small bumps can be very unpleasant when the 20 inchers hit the fenders. This has cured the problem and the ride is simply plush. I put on the BFG Rugged Terrain 10 plys so I can tow my trailer. This combo is fantastic both on and off road.

Cheers,
John

No. The mileage sucked before. And it still sucks. That said, I bought a fire breathing beast so that it would breath fire not blow smoke. But it didn't affect the mileage.
