shudder problem on highway

Hi there.
Hope someone help as it is really frustrating.
I bought a second hand 2011 diesel GC.
I have very bad shuddering on highway speed normally over 90km.
It seems come every 2 or 3 days. The car runs beautifully on highway but all of sudden it shudders violently. it feel like driving on unpaved road. I dont think i feel this on steering wheel but more like from engine or transmission.
The dealer(ford) even replaced torque converter but the problem is still on.
Please help if you have similiar issue!!

Does it disappear if you back off the throttle?

Hi.

It disappear when I put my foot off from accelerator and it comes back when I try to speed up. The vibration becomes more severe when I try to maintain speed. I have to pull over and restart and it seems ok after that.
Any idea?

Re: shudder problem on highway

There were a few TSB's regarding shudder, not sure if they were as bad as yours. I suggest that you get it to a recognised Jeep service centre and ask that they check all software and TSB's are up to date. It may not be the answer but that is where I would start.
