    There is a weird bump when stopping...

    I know its not the transmission but you feel it, the best way I can explain it is it feels like something is still in motion after the KJ stops and it bumps. I can kind of feel it in the brake pedal at times. Just feels like something is loose.

    Any ideas what this may be? I know this is pretty vague on details but I am concerned its something bad.

    Thank in advance for any help

    Sounds like the typical driveline lash that the KJs are prone to. From what you've posted I'd say it's nothing to worry about.

    Is it in 4x4 Full Time? It is much louder and "looser" when it is in 4 wheel drive. And you will feel it more when you hit the gas and hit the brakes just after it shifts up, since it has more "play" on higher gears.

    Mine does it too. Annoying but it's pretty normal.
