Shake in 6th gear

So I was driving home today and noticed the jeep acting a little funny when coming to a stop right before completely stopping the jeep would shake slightly and it hasnt done this before. Also while i was on the highway i put her into 6th and she started shaking alot but if i down shifted to 5th it would stop and so forth it seemed to be only in 6th gear the speed didnt matter.

Anyone have any thoughts on what this might be?

Update: Took her out on a little cruise to try and figure it out...Minor shaking in 5th and 6th and mostly around 55mph still have no idea on what it could be any help would be appreciated.

Wobble while braking would be warped rotors. If it happens every time I would bet that your rotors are warped. Wobble at a specific speed is usually an unbalanced tire.

Hi!! I had same problem 3 years ago, I visited many mechanics anyone don't know why?. Until fund a mechanic 4x4 specialist. The problem was on the front cardan, remove it, and drive, if the issue disappear is the cardan Need be alignment.

Yeah I'd check both front and rear u joint s in both drive shafts, maybe check tire pressure, when was the last time you had a balance and rotate?

Good ideas from other guys. Tires out of balance. Bad U-joints. I just replaced one myself for a vibration at 50-60.
