If you are not being smooth with it it will buck. Mine likes to buck in first gear if I dont give it the throttle right. Second gear is smoother so I usually drive in that when Im wheelin

I haven't been able to use 4wd since the middle of Winter. I did drive on the pavement in 4wd, but the roads are covered in snow all Winter long and it really is a neccessity to use 4wd. I've owned the TJ for three years, and haven't had a problem driving it this way, until this past Winter.Could the problem be a Ujoint or something like that? 2wd is fine, but when it's put into 4wd it shakes very violently right from the get go. It feels like the tires are going to fall off the jeep. Thanks, Ben
