Is it lifted at all? If so and you are still running the stock slip yoke on the TCase then I'd say that the culprit is ujoints in the rear driveshaft.

How good are you on the clutch and shifting? If you are low on RPM's and fast on the clutch it will shudder while it's trying to catch. Try giving it more RPM's and slower on the clutch and see if it does the same thing.
