Apshouse It has the stage 1 pro comp 4" lift kit, with the cheap pro comp shocks, no sye/cv, the t-case has been dropped a little over an inch, it seems to be getting worst and the ride is getting rougher! Oh and as far as I know the motor mounts are stock!

1) What model and brand shock absorbers are installed?
2) What size tires are you running and, precisely, what air pressure is in them?
3) Do you have a SYE/CV driveshaft installed?
4) Has your rear pinion angle been adjusted properly? Are you certain?
5) If no SYE/CV driveshaft, how far has your t-case been dropped and have you also added a set of 1" taller motor mounts?

UnlimitedLJ04 SYE + CV shaft + upper adjustable control arms. the SYE is useless without adjustable uppers...and similarly, there isn't much point in adjustable uppers unless you've got a reason to adjust the pinion...aka a SYE.

Mortalis5509 The pinion angle may not be right due to the lift. Did you install a new drive shaft with the lift or a skid plate drop? Too steep of an angle on the drive shaft will cause vibrations.
