Random rough idling while in drive.

Hey guys,

I ve noticed ever since I bought my jeep that it idles a little rough. When I first bought it I remember looking at the drivers seat and seeing it shake a little and thinking hmmm dont know if I like that. As time went on it has gotten better.

But especially when I run the A/C at a light in drive, it will get random shakes, but if I put it in N it will slow down a bit.

I know it could be spark plugs and fuel injectors (already used sea foam) but any other possibilities? For a minute I thought it might be motor mounts because you can see the engine wobble a bit...

I am having the exact same problem right now. Its really bad as soon as a start it up or when im at a stop sign/light. What I usually do to solve the problem is but it in park and rev the **** out of it. It only fixes the problem temporarily though. Let me know what you find out cause I want it fixed but its not my top priority as of right now but I would like to know. Thanks!
