weird vibration through out the jeep

Ok so I have a vibration in between 45 60 I was told lower control arms. So I replaced everything drag links upper control arm bushing trac bushings new lower control arms and a lift while I was add it. After everything it still vibrates at 50 now. But none the less its still there. Today I engaged the 4x4 on the highway and the vibration stopped. But as soon as I left of the gas it starts again. Can someone help me out. What the hell is going on. Thanks in advance.

First, don't put the jeep in four wheel drive on high traction surfaces. Second, pull each drive shaft individually and drive without it. If it goes away with one of them out then that is your source - bad angles, bad ujoints, bad CV joint, etc.

I know its bad to do that on drive surfaces but its the only way to check it I guess. Can the weight or balanced be lost on the drive line or can the pinion be causing this problen as well

Yes. Always fix known issues before getting on another rabbit trail.

What do your engine mounts look like?

your transfer case bearing(s) could be shot. try moving the yokes, there should be little to no play in it. also check your U Joints for sure

Have you checked the fluid level/condition of both diffs, trans, and transfer case?
