My buddies trans am does the same thing. Every time he is at a red light his dash shakes all over the place but stops as soon as he gets to moving.

I have the same problem, my clutch just got replaced the other day and this noise came with it. I would also like to know what this is. Mine sounds like its coming from the right part of the dash. I looked for what it could be and found nothing

I would check the tranny mount. I had a vehicle the shook like describe and it turned out to be the tranny mount. Just my 2 cents.

Could this be a u-joint that stops vibrating when the rpm goes up, sort of dynamically balanced but not at low revolutions? Happened to me long ago, but can't remember if the noise went away at high or low rpm, was one or the other.

On my old XJ, the exhaust pipe runs VERY close over the top of the trans/xfer case crossmember. If the engine is running the least-bit rough, it shakes a bit ...enough to cause the pipe to make slight contact with the crossmember, causing a "shaking sound" very much like the OP describes. You can't really pinpoint where it's coming from when inside the Jeep, because it resonates through the whole bottom side.

After the engine got about 175k miles on it, no matter how much I tried to smooth the idle out with a tune-up, it would still do it sometimes (i.e. cold mornings, etc.). I finally jacked it up and gained enough clearance by reefing on the pipe with a large bar.

Just something cheap to check (clearances of exhaust pipe to frame members etc.)
