clutch/trans vibration

hey guys i tried to search but couldn't quite find a specific answer...i have a 95 yj with 2.5 liter and 5 speed. when i take my foot off the clutch there is a vibration.. its not too bad yet but its noticeable. when i push on the clutch the vibration goes away... also for what its worth when i go in reverse the jeep wants to jump around almost unless i give it a lot of gas. there is also small vibrations and bucking when i take off in first. after reading it seems like maybe a bad pilot bearing... could anything else cause this issue? thanks in advance everyone!

Mine does the same thing. Some days worse than others. I think they call it clutch chatter.

Yep...chatter...mostlikley time for new clutch and flywheel resurfacing.............however need to check your motor mounts if they are shot then that could be the issue, the enging is jumping up and down when you let out the clutch..........
