Juddery pull away

Hi guys just sorting out my recently purchaced 1999 wrangler sahara 4L it has the tracklock lsd rear diff. when pulling away it judders and sounds like something nocking underneath like maby the exhaust pipe. It has just passed the MOT so all the suspension bushes etc must be ok, I have been underneath and cant find anything lose or rubbing all gears and 4x4 system works as it should and when in anything above 2nd gear all is ok. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this gearbox operates as it should sounds like somthing loose somwhere underneath.

Difficult to diagnose over the internet.

Could be a driveline u-joint on it's way out, TracLoc clutch pack is worn out, your transmissions clutch could be on it's last leg.

Might be worth and hour of labor at a reputable transmission shop to diagnose the problem.

Thanks for the reply Dude, This is my first Jeep. Seems a bit gutless for a 4 ltr only pulling a ton and a half. Its like driving a little dodgem car compared to my pajero 2.8 long wheel base. Still just had a set of cooper stt's put on so will see how it behaves in 3ft of English Mud gona persivere with it to get it right as they have such a good reputation off road.
