Steering Wheel Vibration at Idle

Over the last few weeks I have been experiencing a vibration through the steering wheel and center console arm rest. This only occurs when at a stop, in drive, with the brake applied. I can simulate it with very short stop and goes by taking my foot off the brake pedal, letting the vehicle roll few feet and reapplying the brake. Doing this in succession, I can get the vibration to come and go.

Thoughts?

Is it all the time? Because if active drive is on automatic is might be the 4x4 coming on due to cold temp,snow, or rain.

My 4x4 Latitude, 4 cyl, does this a bit until it warms up. Nothing terrible.

Nope, it's random - I could stop at one light (vibration) and drive to next light and stop (no vibration). Interesting, I didn't think of the active drive angle.

There's a big thread over at jeepcherokeeforum about this. So far no one knows the problem and no dealership or Chrysler has commented on the problem.

I think it's going to be a motor or transmission mount or something resting against the steering. We do know some of the heat shields are making some noise and a little close to other pieces.
