Vibration after SYE + CV. What could it be?

Hello jeepers,
This is my first ever post ever considering i just joined a mnute ago. The reason i join is because of the vibration in my 2003 wrangler X. I installed a rough country 6 inch short arm kit, later i will be purchasing the long arm upgrade. I also installed the rugged ridge slip yoke eliminator and an adams custom driveshaft for a 6 inch lift. I dont know what to do next. The jeep only vibrates between 30-40 mph while accelerating. Below or above that the jeep is smooth. I just wanted some suggestions if possible what to do. I dont know if i want to install blocks to drop the transfer case or what. Thanks TheOrffs

The pinion angle of the rear driveshaft was set by whoever did your alignment?

It sounds like it needs to be checked again. Stuoffroad.com has a great write up.
