Intermittent vibration

So I get this intermittent vibration when I drive. Goes away, comes back....goes away. All the time. I recently changed the rear u joint in the axle side. Could this be the culprit? Any ideas? It does seem to effect offroading and rock climbing. But it's rather not have it.

Did it start vibrating right after changing the u-joint? Did you install a greasable aftermarket U-Joint and not fill it with grease?

No I did a ****ty duralast one. And it seems like it happened after the u joint install. But just prior to that I did brown dog motor mounts. Just yesterday I did brown dog engine brackets too. I just noticed now that it vibrates like that when I'm stopped at a light. I'm thinking its just engine vibration. And with the newer motor mounts and now brackets, it's just normal vibration
