what did you do about your trackbars? if your front axle is off center that can cause vibes. and if your drag-link and track bar are out of alignment that can cause vibes too.
The drive shaft angle looked fine to me, ill look again in the day light tomorrow. Its only a 2.5" lift with a transfer case drop, could it put the angle off that much?

Trackbars are in the same spot, didnt relocate them. I was hoping i wouldnt have to move them with the 2.5" lift.

Im hoping an alignment will fix it

the lift is only going to throw off the center of your steering wheel. so an alignment is useless, do it yourself its pretty easy.

at 2.5" of lift you are cutting it close to needing an adjustable track bar and if you measure I'm betting you are above that.

you should be fine with a TC drop, i didn't read that part. but those wranglers y'all drive have short *** drivelines.

I would measure your axles and see how far off they are at ride height. if it is more than .5" you need adjustable track bars.

you going on sunday?

I went to the DMV today to get my license sticker.
My new record so far, 14 minutes from walk in to walk out. That broke my previous record of 22 minutes.

Drama queen. Gets it from his mom I guess.

I have seen the line wrap around the building before. Just lucky today I guess.

Us old people have nothing better to do. Besides, there's more eye candy at the DMV.

I need to renew my AAA membership. Think I'll do that today.

I have AAA+ so if the jeep breaks down they will tow it up to 100 miles for free. Just have to get it to a road.

I just talked to Betsy and she has the plus membership too. So I called and they can add me to it for $27. Seems like a deal.
I have roadside assistance through my cell carrier for $2/month that is basically the same thing, but it doesn't have the DMV stuff and travel stuff.

AAA is the place to go for DMV stuff. Unless you get a crabby pants 70 year old lady that has worked at the dmv for 50 years and then transfered to AAA. Terrible.

I found a bolt loose, the bottom track bar mount bolt was only on by about 4 threads. I know i tightened it but maybe i didnt tighten it all the way. I torqued it down and we'll see what that does for me. I imagine a loose track bar could cause some wobble.

Loose track bars seem to be the cause of most DW. You've probably found your solution.
