Feels like im spinning tires on Accel, but im not.

When i take off say fro a slow roll, or a complete stop and i jam on the gas to take off. The jeep starts to buck as if i am spinning the tires in the rear. just goes like bang bang bang bang then catches and off i go....any ideas?

The noise is deff in the rear end. Almost like it is trying to catch the gear. only happens in 1st and or second. And i have an Auto. Almost like something is up with my rear diff.

I have the same issue, it started after I had the lift kit installed. I assume that it is why they sye and new cv shaft are recommended for lifted Jeeps.
