    While driving? Sitting still trans. in gear or in park? When brakes are applied? All of the time?
    Does the whole Jeep vibrate, do passengers feel it too? What are the conditions exactly?
    Then we can be more helpful.

    the exh system on these cars is set up to have very little clearance under car and a bad mount will cause vibration from motor or esxh hitting seek diag

    Trans. mounts sag and i think the hanger is hooked to that mount and letting pipe hit cross member.

    That is all we can do. Hard to fix them on a key board and screen! I would love to get my hands on some
    of these cars and i am sure all of us could do some "magic"! Or some damage.

    I second that! But you know sometimes when you know darn well you have given advice that HAD to fix a problem
    and never get a response, makes it seem sorta pointless. Even a broken clock is right twice a day!
    Just from the years of experience we get it right a bunch of the time. Problem is folks do not understand
    what the hell we are talking about most of the time. Sorry for the rant, the wife has left for work and i didn't
    have anybody else to fuss with. Have a good day,maybe we can do some magic on at least one today!
