What is causing this weird noise?
Ok so i have a 1997 Wrangler TJ, so these last two night's it's been around in the mid teen's here in TN. So today on the way to work, i get ready to and pull out of our driveway; so i go to let off the clutch and the jeep rolls forward then just tries to stop on me.... So after work i get ready to back out and it starts going backwards but then i just stop's (almost like someone threw a block of wood behind the tires), so then i go to do it again and something in the rear right end pops fairly loudly.... So i go to pick my brother up and i turn into my grandparents driveway and the rear backend starts shaking(almost like i had a flat tire)..... What could be causing this?

Sounds like somethings let go in your differential. :eek:

Pull your dif cover and check for any pieces of steel that may drain out of the oil.

If nothing, grab a flashlight and start inspecting your carrier and gears. If its acting up as bad as you say, something should pop right out at you.

It was actually where I didn't let the gears in it warm up enough during these cold nights.... So glad it wasn't anything major :)
