Swapped out the D30 and Installed a Dynatrac Pro Rock 44 with ARB locker, RCV axles and Reid knuckles. Still have some work left to do but its 90% complete.

Took the jeep in for its last free oil change and tire rotation.  Canít wait to do the work myself.

Curious, did the Dealership say you would void the warranty?  Or were they part of the purchase so you might as well have them do it?  We had services as part of the purchase of our Mini and our Audi, but not our JKU.  If they told you it would void a warranty they were messing with you.
They were part of the purchase.  It was mostly convenient since my Jeep had transmission issues and a water leak from day 1.  Thankfully all fixed under warranty.

Oh great, so picked up the jeep and still have the vibration. Took it back and now they say its probably the crankshaft. WTH!  dropped it off for hopefully a second opinion.

So get the vibs about 45 up. This one isnt too bad. Its under decel when coming to a stop at low rpms it really wobbles in the whole jeep.

First shop says suspension and transmission are tight.


Ugh!

Crankshaft vibration would be related to engine speed, not wheel/vehicle speed. If the crankshaft was vibrating it would do it at X,XXX rpm regardless of how fast the vehicle was going. But, easy way to check is to drop it into neutral to release any connection between the motor and rest of the driveline while you are decelerating.

I would check the driveshafts. They see an inversion of applied force when decelerating compared to accelerating and angles can change. Double cardans, especially, can exhibit issues when being forced in one direction compared to the other.

RFH_98TJ has good suggestions on pulling the driveshafts. But, unless it's a Rubicon you won't be able to pull the rear-driveshaft and drive around. I would pull the front like he says and see how it does. If you still have the vibration then pull the rear shaft and actually remove the u-joints and check the inside of the caps. It's not uncommon for the caps/joints to look okay (especially at high mileage) from the outside but the needle bearings are getting toasted or brinelling the joint ears.

Other thing would be to check the pinions for any play or signs of leaks. With such high mileage it would be possible that the rear pinion bearing has gotten worn and now has room to bounce around when the force reverses itself (decelerating).

EDIT - just to cover the obvious - you've ruled out warped or drums rotors, yeah? Does it do it regardless of whether or not you're on the brakes?

If it's really your crankshaft it's going to show up in a big way real fast - they don't vibrate for to long, especially how you are describing it.  Has anyone who is really qualified actually looked at your drive shaft u-joints by removing the shafts?

Someone should test drive it with the front DS removed, then the rear DS removed to see if the vibration changes.  Is this Jeep lifted or stock?

How's your pinion angle?

Managed to install these bad boys.  This might be my first legit piece of Gucci gear for the jeep.

How much nicer do those ride vs. the RE-tuned Bilsteins? Worth the $$$$?
I like them a lot so far.  The Falcon 3.1s were $949.00, I've never driven the bilsteins, but I'm happy with them so far.

Those falcons look real nice!! Iím running the Bilstein 5100ís on my JKU and theyíve been good so far.

Yeah the Falcons look awesome!  I am also running Bilstein 5100s and like them.  I also have the steering stabilizer.
