    Jeep shakes when I accelerate quickly to 55 MPH. Jeep does not shake when I accelerate slowly to 55MPH.

    Welcome to the site! @OFFGRID is one of our really knowledgeable guys that would give better advice than me, but I would ask you the basics, such as, hows your alignment? Ball joints?

    Welcome! So many variables that can produce those vibrations....any new repairs or upgrades or recent pot hole misadventures?

    Maybe you could elaborate on the term "shakes"
    Is it a vibration you feel in the seat or floor?
    Is it a shake in the steering wheel? if so is it a small shake or something up to a violent shake?
    Is it a shake that you feel in the rear or does the whole vehicle shake? If so how bad?

    There are soooo many things a shake could be, with enough information we may be able to help you find the cause
