Overland 5.7 transmission or wheels question

I have a 2011 Overland 5.7 with the 5 speed tranny and only 7k miles on it. My question is:

1. it feels the tranny is hesitant to change gears when I hit the gas pedal quickly. Is this normal for the 5 speed tranny?

2. And at any crusing speeds it feels like a constant wheel vibration somewhere (feels like skipping on the road), but the tires are balanced recently. It does not happen all the time and the truck has GoodYear Forte 20s on it, what is the possible problem?

Thanks any help is great to guide the Jeep dealer with dealing with the problem as they say nothing is wrong.

There is a TSB 21-004-10 which updates the ESC and solves both problems.

Re: Overland 5.7 transmission or wheels question

Did the tsb fix the steering wheel wobble issue?

Re: Overland 5.7 transmission or wheels question

The ESC update is not going to fix this problem. But I would be interested to know if the Intermediate shaft tsb 19-004-11 takes care of it.
