2005 shaking...???

Just put a 2 inch lift on my 2005 about a month ago. Left origonal tires - for now. He other day, while driving - the jeep began to SHAKE... Lite the front tire was wobbling... Then it stopped. Just yesterday it happened again. The jeep kind of pulled to the right when this happened. It only lasted a couple seconds. Any ideas?

Sounds like death wobble to me.

I would also consider an adjustable track bar. And an alignment. And balancing the tires. dynamics change when lifts are put on.

It is not Death wobble if you drove through it and it stopped. If you did not have to pull a section of seat from your behind from the pucker... it was not Death wobble. Death wobble is a violent shaking that only stops when you slow to below 5 or 10 miles an hour. It is a harmonic build up of vibration in your front axle. Worn track bar, tie rod ends or ball joints are normally the cause... In your case it sounds more like a toe problem... I would check your alignment first. Then work through your steering components.
