08 rubicon dash lights going crazy

Posting for a friend.

i hit a small bump at about 45mph today, triggering a wicked DW. Spedometer quit working, abs light came on, brakelight, swaybar light flashes. Tried to get rid of swaybar light by driving around in 4wd, but the wheels would lock up when trying to move. 2wd is fine except for the lights...
anybody have similar problems?

The dash lites sound like a battery issue to me. Death wobble is a totally different problem, like a possible Trakbar mount?

pull the plug on your swaybar and see if that fixes the electric issue

First and foremost the DW rootcause(s) should be investigated and fixed. During that process you might also find the cause for the electrical issues.

TIPM modules are known to go bad in many different ways, so I'd check that out. Mine was bad and my Jeep would freak out about twice a year, running or not, lights flashing, gauges go dead, horn blares, wipers come on, empties the washer fluid if you don't get it to stop quick enough. A good smack on the TIPM lid would make it quit. Then this spring, my headlights quit working completely. $430 later, I installed a new TIPM and all seems to be fine for the last 3 weeks.
