major vibration please help

I just got this tj in march, it has a major vibration after 50/55 mph and does'nt go away. I've tried diff tires, changed the steering stabilizer,also the right side front wheel bearing (hub assembly). I'm at a loss and would like to know if anyone else has had this problem? The tj is a 4cyl and bone stock as of right now.

I have a 99 4cyl TJ and had/still have the exact same problem at the exact same speed. I suspected that it was the rear end, so I got it professionally re-done, still no luck. Recently, I bought a used rear end from a junkyard and put it in and it took away some of the vibes but definitely not all. I'm in the same boat as you... you can really only do so much. I try to drive <50 or bump it up to 60 to avoid those obnoxious vibes. Good luck!

What kind of vibe? Is it strong? Does it pulse? Is it constant with speed or does it speed up or slow down?

What does it mean if the vibration pulses? I'm sure you have read my post but ....pulsing at 50-55 is the exact word I am. Looking for.
