Driveline help

I have a 93 YJ with 3.5" Susp lift (Dick Cepek) and 1.25" shackle lift (Warrior 2") with the t-case lowering kit and extended driveshaft. AX-15 tranny was replaced with rebuilt and clutch was replaced too. New ujoints on the rear shaft as well. Checked both front and rear diffs and they look fine. There is some pitting in hte smaller gears but I was told those only engage when turning so that isn't it. So here is the deal, have a driveline vibration when accellerating and in 2-4 gears. 5 has it too but the frequency is totally different.

I know these are tough to troubleshoot and so I am looking for advice on where to take it local to Chesapeake VA. Wondering if any of ya'll knew someone you would trust. I had some bad experiences with my F150 so the trust level is pretty low.

Any advice ya'll might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help!

does it feel like the vib is coming from the front or back, make sure the Universals and the slide thing on the driveshaft are all greased up and good, put the truck in neutral with ebrake on and grab the driveshaft and see if it moves around. also if they didnt balance the driveshaft when they extended it that would cuase the problems you are experiencing
