WahooWolfe I wheeled it in Colorado this summer. Can't state what the previous owner did but doubt it was anything too wild as Florida is as flat as a pancake. Only thing to get in trouble with here is water and don't think that happened.

Put a 4.5" short arm lift and a 1.5" body lift on to accomodate the 35" tires.

Profile shot was taken at the top of Black Bear near Telluride.

adkjoe Yea u-joint and all other things will go bad all time without having abused them. The woman I bought my Jeep from never took it off pavement and the rear u-joint at the pinion needed replacing at 50k and by the looks of your profile your pushing larger tires and lifted so if you didn't wheel it the Previous owner probably did.

WahooWolfe Went to 4 Wheel Parts and they determined that the CV joint in my rear drive shaft was shot. Glad I know what's wrong now but have to wait until Monday as RE has to ship the part to 4WP to install under warranty.

Thanks for everyone's help with this!

T2000J What was said befor parts go bad . It dont mater if your wheeling or not . Things break nothing last for ever . Thats why there are auto parts stores everywhere

WahooWolfe Well, I took it to the dealership this am. After their analysis, they believe it to be the rear drive shaft or U joints. Still can't figure out why it would be that as I haven't been wheeling to do anything to it. I called 4 wheel Parts as I beleive the drive shaft is still in warranty and am scheduled to take it in tomorrow. So much for new quality, eh? I will advise what I find out then.

I appreciate everyone's input! As usual, this forum is very helpful.

What's TOB?

Sometimes at higher speeds (40+) there is a definite wobble that hasn't been there before but again, not all the time. The sound goes away when the clutch pedal is depressed but then comes back when it isn't.

I am not a mechanic and would love to have some input on where to start.

I appreciate your help in advance.

4Jeepn I think the TJ has a clutch fluid top off thing, located by the master cylinder. Try that first. As for the wobble.. bad u-joint, out of balance rims, drive shaft etc.
