Shaking/binding when in mud help!

When im in a mud hole and have to use some gas to get through it the jeep will shake sometimes. I let out of the gas anytime it does it. It did the same thing in my last jeep as well. I took it as normal. I wheel with a friend that has a tj and have never noticed his shaking like mine tho. Any ideas?

This past weekend i was in a big mud hole and really needed some wheel speed to get out of it. if i reved it to high it would start bouncing. If its something i can fix or help stop im all for it.

only thing I have experienced that COULD BE similar is when I have the wheels turned "too far" .....and it is trying to hop......when I figured out the problem I have since avoided "hammering on it" with the steering cranked...unless I was already spinning the wheels.....FWIW it has eliminated that problem.

Then that's just wheel bounce. Means you are in too deep with too much resistance. Watch some videos of vehicles in mud and even tractor pulls. When there is too much resistance the vehicles shake and bounce. You could always try 4l, but that wont give you as much speed.
