few questions

Okay I just bought an 05 wrangler from a kinda shady guy.... but the jeep is beautiful and really clean. I took it home today and it might just be me being a ****ty stick driver only a few times prior to today. Okay so the question is my jeep does this weird hopping when im in 1st thru 3rd gear only if I tap the gas just regular shifting is fine but if I let off and tap it again it will hop like a mother. Is it my set up it has 35's with a rough country 6 1/2 inch lift kit. It has front and rear lockers on it and some other after market parts front and rear bumpers winch etc... also it sucks on turns it leans way to much that im fairly certain will be remedied by re connecting the front swing arms .... any help on this will be appreachiated thanks

The body roll could be remedied by reconnecting the sway bar. Does it hop with an accompanied tach fluctuation? Or is it just the jeep going back and forth on the springs?

Its like this I start in first or second no issues unless I let off the gas and try to reapply it so it would be a tach flucation but jormal shifting and driving on the highway from 1st to 6th its fine as long as I dont let off the gas

Sorry I should've been clearer. Is it a sustained bucking like a mechanical bull or just a single jerk?

If it is only once and relatively soft it sounds normal. You should repost this to the technical forum. If anyone else has ideas the thread would be much more likely to be seen there.

Like Patman mentioned, you need to post this in one of the tech sections or wrangler Gd vice mil jeepers. Lots of questions that can be answered for you there.

After driving mine yesterday seeing if I can duplicate the symptoms it appears you are possibly jumping back into the throttle too hard. Because it is a 4wd SUV with low gearing it will feel like it drags a lot harder when you are off the gas when in gear. Try easing back into the throttle until it starts pulling instead of just hitting the gas until it goes. I know that's hard to understand but just try that and let me know how it goes.
