Bad u joint?

So I have a wobble at 45 mph, I know there are a ton of threads on this. But I have play in my front drive shaft, I think a bad u joint. Could this cause my wobbling? Also I have a 2000 4.0 with a 3.5 inch lift and 33s. Thanks guys.

What do you mean by "wobble"? Is it that your whole front end feels like it is out of control, or is it more like a vibration coming from the front and not really in the steering?

If it is the former, was your Jeep realigned after the lift?

If it is the latter, it could be the u-joint. Grab hold of the front drive shaft and see if you can move it sideways or up and down on both ends.
