Rear end stepping out over bumps

Has anyone felt the rear end stepping out around corners. Did a big drive this weekend and noticed that the ass end tends to step out when going over bumps around corners. I was not driving hard at the time either, at one point I was following a SUV pulling a boat and it happened so I cant of been going that fast. I've only done about 1200 Km's so far so nothing has had time to wear out. Is this just how these jeeps handles or should I be concerned and has anyone else experience this.

Yep... There is a hill where I work which curves to the right while going down hill. It has rain water grates along the edge in the middle of the turn. I usually avoid them as the rear end will step out a bit when I hit them.

My previous SUV, a 2003 Murano SE AWD with sport suspension, would do the same thing. So I'm used to it. It's a bit disconcerting when you first feel it but I believe that its normal for the suspension that we have.

I also find that going slow over a speed bump feels like running over something big but if you go over it faster you barely notice it...
