    2001 4.0 4x4 possible trans problem?

    On the way to work the other day, I started to get a pretty major shudder in the driveline. I've since noticed that it will only do it right after it has shifted gears and it's low in the RPM range, while you're applying more throttle to try to accelerate. It's a major shudder and will rock you...
