1. Shuttering or shaking of jeep

    I recently purchased a 2008 Jeep Wrangler and I am have issues with it during take off. It is a 6 speed, when I take off in first gear it seems like when I go to give it gas a release off the clutch it doesn’t want to go and the Jeep starts to shake until I fully get going. Has only one had this problem with their Jeep. It is lifted and has mud terrain tires.

    Shuttering or shaking of jeep

    Keep at it and learn this trans. First gear is really low and if you let the clutch out and give the correct amount of gas you could get whiplash. The jeep will buck really hard. Give it more gas.
    The other possibility is you have a slipping clutch.
    What size are the tires. I have 33x10.50 and often pull out in 2nd gear.

    sounds a little like my old ford 4x4, it has a weak pressure plate and i have to work at taking off from a dead stop and not making the truck chatter
