Well it only shows I didn't read it all. But don't tell me that U joints vibrate naturally, because i had 96 4.0 that had ujoints from factory and they didnt vibrate...
And honestly, to me having a car with vibrating shafts is a total misunderstanding. I naturally assumed that if a company offers their services, they sell products
that dont vibrate, creating totally useless state of the vehicle... Unless you only put it in an offroad rig, that you dont use daily and dont exceed speeds of 50mph.
I feel that should be more clearly stated.

They do. That's why CV joints exist in the first place. The natural vibration association with a U-joint is amplified when its transmitting power (as it does with the NP249 t-case).

This is why keeping all joints in good repair is critical and making sure your pinion angle is correct.

Then my previous jeep refused to agree with what you are saying. Lol
