    Cool VIDEO - JL JOURNAL : A BAD VIBE - Tracking Down & Fixing Driveshaft Vibrations

    There are few things more annoying than driving a Jeep with driveline vibes - basically, a driveshaft that's vibrating. It's that oscillating hum that comes and goes and comes again like a rolling wave and one that you can almost feel in your body more than you can hear. Of course, because it can be somewhat subtle, it can also be hard to tell just how loud it really is or how quite your Jeep used to be. Over time, it can not only make you feel like a rusty nail is getting gently pounded into your skull, it can actually lead to real problems like fractures in your transfer case. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, you'll get to see how Cindy and I tracked down and finally fixed the bad vibes we had on our Jeep JL Wrangler. We hope you enjoy.

    I have the most annoying vibrations I equate to buffeting similar to on a motorcycle with a poorly adjust windshield or a car with only one window down. It drives me absolutely nuts. Did you ever experience a similar thing on your jk?

    I'm impressed at how you got the shaking "Hummmmmm" text sync'd to the audio so well in the video. LOL!

    Sorry, I'd need to know more about what you're hearing to say for sure.

    I’m pretty sure I have this same problem on my front d/s as well. 90% of it goes away when I pull it. Problem is we don’t have a local shop to balance or fab one here.... very frustrating. Glad you got yours fixed though!

    I agree. I have a vibe at 62 to 65 mph. I'm getting mine checked soon. Thanks for the great info Eddie and Cindy.

    I heard that too and wondered who'd be the first to comment on it.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
