Got some word on the jeep today from the shop...
"Jordan, we dropped the diff cover and checked the backlash and pattern and everything checks out great. I am going to take it for a ride now and see how hot it gets. My mechanic is concerned that you had a long drive home and did not do a proper break-in schedule, but I think we found the real culprit. While looking at everything under the Jeep I noticed excessive slop in the rear output yoke on the transfer case. The yoke could visibly move up and down. Upon inspection it was found that the retaining nut was loose as well as three of the four bolts that hold on the driveshaft at the yoke. We took everything apart, cleaned it up, and re-installed everything tight and used thread locking compound. That could have given a pretty bad vibration."
idk how the all that could come loose? They also never told me to "break in" the gears. so idk hopefully nothing is wrong once they tighten up the 2 shafts. I guess its kinda good news in comparison as to what it could be lol
