Do you have large tires and stock gears?

I have the same problem in my 95 YJ. It was there before my lift. Mine is kinda like a rhythmic vibration. My mechanic drove it and said it could be as easy as a tranny fluid change or as hard as a bearing/gear replacement. As soon as I can, I am going to change out the tranny fluid and add a bottle of pennzoil synchromesh to see if that works. I am not bothered by it as much since I drive in town and rarely over 45mph. However, it's annoying as H#$% when it's in 5th.
