JEEP TJ VIBRATION PROBLEM

2004 Jeep TJ • 87,000 miles

When my vehicle is cold there is a vibration when I put it into 2nd gear. As the vehicle warms up this goes away. Any ideas.

JUST SLINGING YOU SOMETHING

YOU MIGHT FEEL THIS THRU THE TRANNY AND TRANSFER CASE

CHECK ALL UNIVERSAL AND CV JOINTS FOR SLOP OR PLAY IN THE JOINTS

----BE SAFE---CHOCK FRONT AND BACKSIDE OF WHEELS WHEN YOU HAVE IT IN NEUTRAL

IT'S BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE 5 PREVIOUS CJs AND 2, I PRESENTLY OWN, THAT IF I "FAIL" TO CHECK THEIR STATUS (SELDOM NOW DAYS) THAT WHEN THEY BEGIN TO WEARTHEY SORTA HAVE A HARD TO HEAR SQUEAK WHEN I LET OFF THE GAS. SORTA SIMILAR TO A TRICYCLE WHEEL IN NEED OF OIL

IN THE PAST WHEN I KINDA LET THINGS GO, AFTER THE FAINT SQUEAK WENT AWAY, I'D GET VIBRATIONS. THEY WERE MORE NOTICEABLE AT LOWER SPEEDS

BELOW IS A FEW PICS FROM "WILLY". MY 1946 WILLYS

MAYBE YOU CAN READ 'EM, MY CHOICE OF COLORS WAS KINDA LACKING

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND
