COULD BE SEVERAL/ MANY THINGS,

IS IT COMING FROM EXHAUST?

DOES IT SOUND LOUDER IN MIDDLE/ DRIVERS SIDE/ PASSENGER SIDE?

DOES IT CHANGE IN PITCH, SLOWER OR FASTER SPEEDS?

DOES IT STOP, IF YOU TAP THE BRAKES FOR A SECOND?

HAVE YOU LOOKED UNDER YOUR JEEP FOR A STICK/ BOX/ BAG/ TRASH RUBBING ON A MOVING PART?

ANY SIGNS THAT SOMETHING HAS LEAKED ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR TIRES, REAR AXLE, AROUND THE DRIVE SHAFT, AROUND THE TRANSMISSION OR TRANSFER CASE?

HAVE YOU HAD THE FLUID LEVELS CHECKED IN THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED DRIVETRAIN COMPONENTS?

INSPECT YOUR "U" JOINTS FOR "SLOP"

ARE YOU DRIVING IN 4X4 ON A PAVED ROAD? (MAYBE ITS STUCK IN 4X4, BUT INSIDE THE COCKPIT, IT SAYS YOU ARE NOT.)

ARE YOUR TIRES PROPERLY INFLATED?

ARE ALL OF TIRES ALL THE "EXACT" SAME SIZE?

IMMA JEEP CJ KINDA GUY, I DO NOT KNOW YOUR VEHICLE WELL,

I CAN HELP YOU THRU SOME OF THE CHECKS, FOR INSTANCE, I CAN SEND YOU A PIC SHOWING HOW TO CHECK "U" JOINTS

LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED HELP.I CAN ONLY TRY

GIVE ME SOME ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS--MEGA DETAIL IS A GOOD THING!--THIS MAY HELP DETERMINE, WHAT TO ZERO IN ON.

OTHERS COULD POP IN HERE AND ASSIST ALSO!
