Jeep Vibration at Highway Speeds

“Vibration at highway speeds” is a common search online.

From the research I have done, the vibration is likely caused by a bad U-Joint or possible the driveline is out of alignment. There are other reasons, but these are two things to check first.

From my searching, here is a multi-part tutorial on the types and brands of U-Joints.
