Vibration at higher speeds.. 50mph+

Got a 96 grand Cherokee 5.2 v8 full time 4wd I just swapped out the front axle from a CV style yoke to a U joint yoke style axle. I drove it around for awhile without the front driveshaft (for different reasons) and it had no vibration problems so I dont think it's my tires being unbalanced.. So I picked a U joint style driveshaft off a junkyard zj and put that on the new front axle and now when I get it on the freeway the jeep begins to vibrate randomly and it comes and goes often.. It seems it vibrates more whenever I let off the gas and begin to coast at high speeds..

Please let me know any ideas might help thank you!!

Did you have the new shaft balanced and check the U joints?

I'm not sure how to check or test the U joints.. And scince I pulled the driveshaft off another jeep I figured it would be ok, but maybe that's not true?

It could be worn out, unbalanced, or bent.

check the torque of the t case front output shaft yoke. Specs are 90 - 130. Mine would vibrate starting at 65. tightened the yoke nut and it seems to have stoped
