shake when first starting out

My jeep has got a terrible shake when it first starts out. Its not there if i'm rolling and then step on the gas, its only when i'm letting the clutch out. It shakes the whole drivetrain and you can see the transfer case shaking if you look at it from the side with someone starting out. I checked my transmission mount and its all tight with a near new poly mount. What could be causing this? my best guess is i have some oil on my clutch and its grabbing and then slipping and then grabbing.

repalce motor mounts.

I got a OMIX ADA complete kit of motor mounts for $34. that was the two motor mounts, trans mount and torque arm bushings.

the motor mounts took about 40 minuets and a floor jack to complete. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I'm saving the trans mount for latter.

Yep, open the hood and watch the right motor mount while someone lets out the clutch. Be smart, replace both [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

The problem could also be with the clutch. Somethimes they'll do that when they get a little oil. Or if the anti-chatter springs in the hub get weak or break.
