vibration/rattle at low speed

I am getting a vibration/rattle at low speeds. 10-20mph. It is coming from the front of the jeep and it goes away if I tap the brakes. I figured maybe the PO installed the brake pads wrong or perhaps one of the calipers was loose, but everything is the way its supposed to be. Where else can I look. I am new to jeeps so I know absolutely nothing about how they are set up.

Does it stop when you left off the gas and just coast? (no brake pressing lol)

No. Stll does it while I coast. I do have mudders and I am wondering if the tread makes a certain frequency a that speed that makes thing rattle and shake underneath.

Its possible. When mine use to rattle and shake it took my U-joints braking to figure out that it was those. After replacing them the shaking stopped. Your Tires couyld possibly be off balanced? What are your typical activites, do you wheel? just DD or crawl? Hit any curcs at an odd angle or anything lately?

30x9.5 wild country rtvs. They are frigging loud. As soon as I can afford a new set of bfgs they are coming off.

Bfg all-terrain? I run Boggers on my daily driver. They do have unique vibrations at different speeds. I did also have a draglink ball joint go bad on me and it gave me some lower speed vibrations. Might be a place to look.

Don't see how it would make a difference.
