Okay, I bought 32" BFG AT a couple of weeks ago. Great tire, rides smooth and quiet. Did some light wheeling this weekend. Across a field and through a couple of gullies. Just enough to get to a camping spot in the woods. Driving home tonight I feel a weird vibration. Mostly when accelerating. No certain speed. It's not death wobble kind of vibration. I've had that on a previous Jeep and know what that feels like. The new vibration feels like it's in the front but I'm not sure. I check all the weights on the wheels and they all look like they are still there. The rear diff looks like it may be seeping a little fluid but it's not bad. Anyone point me in the right direction to look?

Any mud caked and dried to the back of the wheels or on the drivelines?

No mud anywhere. It's still doing it. It seems to be worse when I'm pulling my utility trailer. I am thinking maybe a wheel bearing?
