Vibration at around 35 mph !!

Upon accelerating, I get vibration at around 35 mph (give or take a few mph). It sounds like it's in the drive-train, but I am not really sure. What would be some things to check. Would a bad motor mount or worn out shocks cause this? Also, I also get an intermittent humming/vibration noise when I am very lightly on the throttle (like 5% throttle). The noise comes and goes in 1 second intervals. It has been doing this for a good while and I am not sure what could be causing that noise. Any ideas?

Could be a bad u-joint, pinion bearing, output bearing. It will be hard to know without getting under the jeep and checking everything out. If all seems good under there, you may have to remove the front shaft and see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't remove the rear shaft and drive in 4x4 to see if it goes away.

Are you sure you want to try removing the rear shaft and driving?

On his model there will be no problem with doing this. With the 92 you have it will leak tranny fluid.

it could also be a tire imbalance. try doing a rotation and see if it goes away. i had a vibration in the steering wheel and the jeep. it was just a slight vibration though just at 50 mph. if i went 45 it would not be there if i went 55 it would not be there
