I had same issue. Took it to dealer and they road force balanced the tires. That worker for a minute. Took back to dealer again and they test drove and said everything was good. I went to discount tire and had them balance tires (not a kid)and it has been pretty good. I see there is a lot of weight on one tire. It is defenatly the wheels and tires doing all the shaking.

I have a 2011 overland with 20" wheels and good year tires. 4x4

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

I see this same problem moved from one platform to another .. WK1 to WK2. So it must be the AWD driveline. Some guys have chased this for years with no clear resolution from Chrysler - they spent thousands of their own money.

All I have to say, Chyrsler Jeep should be forced to post a warning that your new vehicle may or may not shake, vibrate or shudder for the life of the vehicle - proceed at your own risk.

This is why I need to simply turn my back on the brand.

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

I have this problem as well.... I hope I can get it resolved during the next oil change if they balance/rotate the tires.

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

Out of curiosity, is this something that has developed for you guys over time, or did the problem present itself immediately after you purchased and got it up to that speed?

Also, I assume this is different from the vibration described here: Pentastar vibration at 2000 rpm/60 mph

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

One of the wheels could be out of round, I had that problem with my srt reps. Have the dealership check the wheels only.

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

I have the same issue on my 2011 Limited...Once the tires wear down more, I plan to replace and possibily road-force balance. We should NOT have to road-force balance these wheels as this is not a high-performance sports car...

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

What engine do you guys have? My 3.6 WK2 is perfect, but my 5.7 Durango shakes like crazy, seems like it's a transmission issue though

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

I have the 3.6..I get shaking in the steering wheel only. So I am fairly certain its something to do with the tires/balance.

These tires dont have a ton more tread life left in them, so for now they will do.

Re: Shaking between 62 & 80 mph

Hey Guys, I was having the same issue back about a month ago and I figured out it was the lower control arm bushings worn out! some people even said that they had to change theirs at 30k (crappy manufacturing) after that it was smooth sailing. Mine only vibrated when I was slowing down(not braking) from around 80 to 60 anywhere in between, I balanced my tires 4 times at 4 different locations due to my new wheels and each time they tested each wheel also but it felt exactly the same afterwards, one huge clue was that when even at slow speeds when passing over a pot hole or bump you could hear a faint noise coming from the front end. My Jeep is a 05' WK Srt Springs all around (NEW)SRT Bilstein, NEW Moog front Strut Mounts 20" tires with 245/45/20 hope this helps!!
