So the other day i went fourwheelin in my newly lifted jeep cherokee(3inch.) I didnt take any risks and did not get stuck, there also was not much mud, and no damage after. About 3 miles after offroading on real pavement i experienced a heavy shake in the steering wheel and felt it shake. It only lasted for 5 seconds tops. Its been a day and a half since then and have had no more shaking. A friend said that some mud might have gotten stuck and feel out after the shaking. Is this right?

What year Jeep? What brand lift? What additioanal components (track bar, t-case drop, etc.), if any, were installed? How fast were you going when it shook? Were you accellerating, decelerating or coasting?

Since it hasn't done it again, I would suspect that there was some mud or other debris caught in one of the rims that became noticable when you hit that speed. After a few seconds it got thrown clear and smoothed out. You'd be surprised how little mud it will take in a rim to shake a Jeep pretty badly. I came off a trail after a weekend of wheeling and was shaking so badly at 35, I swore I broke something. I stopped and cleaned some mud out of the pass side rim and it was smooth as the day I drove it off the lot...go figure. Wink

The low pinion front axles on the '00's and '01's are a little more prone to driveline vibrations than earlier years. That's not saying you've got or will develop any. Again, since it hasn't done it since I doubt it's a driveline problem.
