Vibrations upon acceleration

I did some searching last night and couldn't find what I was looking for. It dosnt matter how fast I'm going but every time I hit the throttle I'm getting pretty harsh vibrations. I checked all on my steering components and all were tight. I have slight play in the pass wheel bearing. I'm going to pull the front ds this after noon and see what happens. Has anyone ever experienced this and or may know from experience what may be causing this? Thanks in advance. 02 overland 247 fresh fluid diffs fresh fluid and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

check your U-joints on your drive shafts. They may be on the way out.
