rear end, drive shaft question
stated having a vibration a few days ago, checked u-joints and everything fine there. took back tires off and checked out the shaft end play, about 1/16 in. rotated wheel hub and noticed drive shaft not turning, sometimes a little. I thought everything in there is geared. jeep has been driving good up until the vibration started. could the pin be worn or broke? thanks
Unless you put things in neutral, your rear driveshaft is locked by the transmission/tc being in park. Presumably you had both tires in the air and the opposite wheel from the one you turned also turned.

took drive shafts apart, u-joints looked good,no slop at all. rotated tires, found spare tire loose. tightened everything good. the spare tire being loose can really cause a good vibration. should there be any shaft end play in the rear axle?
