Shifter vibration

Bought our son a 2011 JK Rubicon w/73k miles on the odometer. On a smooth road he is experiencing a pretty good vibration in the shifter when in 2nd and 3rd. Not so pronounced in 4th and higher.

Anything we should be checking?

BTW, this is a stock Rubicon.

Normal. You can shake a martini with mine.

I replaced the middle gear shift boot on my 2011 because the old one was clicking and making it hard to get into 2, 4, 6, and R.

After replacing it ($34 part from Mopar) not only was the clicking gone, but the shifting was easier, and the vibration in the gear shift was greatly reduced.

It still shakes a lot, but it shakes about 1/2 as much as it used to.

Thanks, guys. I feel a little better about not having some sort of excessive drive train wear.

My Mustang GT had absolutely no vibration or feedback from the transmission probably due to the different type of linkage.

Same boat here I've just figured it's pretty normal because nothing else is shaking. The shifter boot sounds like a decent idea just to calm it down a little.

The one I replaced is the heavy rubber one under the fancy outer one. It helped with the vibration, but didn't eliminate it.
