Basically what he is saying is that until people start dying in crashes because of DW the manufacture will not do anything if it is in fact a defect in the car or its steering system. Any major recall for any car has to be widespread with either people dead or a real possibility for many to be injured or dead. Otherwise, they turn a blind eye.

First thing I'd have checked would be the upper control arm ball joints for play. Then the control arm bushings for proper torque. 2014 Cherokee uses electronic power steering, so, no pitman or drag link. Tie rod ends, if it has one, would be the next step. I mean, really, that's about it. Typically DW on a SFA design is due to the track bar mounts becoming ovaled out. Can't tell you how many mounts, track bars and trussing I've done over the years to correct it on numerous vehicles.

btw, I'm an avid off-roader, have owned, built, modified and worked on 100's of CJ/TJ/YJ/LJ/JK/U Wrangler's, XJ Cherokee's, WJ/2/WK/2 Grand Cherokee's, FJ Cruisers, H2's.

What do you mean by "SFA design"?

Towed a 2005 Wrangler Rubicon, 2007 Wrangler Sport, and now a 2015 Cherokee Trailhawk using a Demco towbar and baseplates. All self installed. Not one problem. Which I think adds nothing to help cure the Death Wobble of others.

Solid Front Axle (SFA) as opposed to an Independent Front Suspension (IFS).

This.

DW on a IFS is typically only going to happen on one side. As where a SFA the wobble is translated to both front wheels.

With the vehicle being a 2014 I'd be taking it back to Jeep and reproduce the issue for them. Take the tech on a ride with you. A lazy tech won't spend more than 10 minutes looking at it before slapping a "Could not reproduce" on the ticket and sending you on your way.
