93 yj towing 300 lbs trailer vibration gone?

So my jeep has a body vibration at 60+ mph. And today I noticed while towing a very small trailer that the vibration was nearly gone... Any ideas if this is a clue to what might be wrong?

typically a 55-60 mph vibration is tire balance or out of round. It is possible that putting a pulling load on the tire dampens the vibration because ot the greater lateral pull.

This is true. I'm gona do a jack stand test tomorrow. Not the safest idea. But I've done it before... Put it on stands chauk the front wheels and have a buddy spin em... See if I can see it in the wheels or the drive shaft.
