No, the trade-off you said was death wobble. Death wobble is not classified as a "poorer on road manner", but rather as a completely undrivable condition.

Show me where I have ever suggested that the Wrangler suspension be changed? Or that "if you buy a Jeep, you're gonna die". In fact I was firmly on the side of folks arguing against putting a IFS on the Wrangler. Again you seem to be having an argument with someone else. I even suggested that if the objective was a highly capable off road vehicle then the Jeep was the best option. Yet you're acting like I called your kid ugly.
Don't back out of what you said. Go read your first post, it's clear and precise. You suggested to not buy a Jeep with a solid axle, because you will get a death wobble, which is a "trade off", and not a neglect of maintenance. Forget about the Wrangler, you don't need it, and should not even care what happens to its axle. Go buy a Forester instead.
