Go underneath and untie the midget, it's getting cold!

Seriously it could be a number of things, time to go underneath and have a look. Check all bushings and mounts for torque and to see if bushings are going bad.

Or.... Get ready for it..... Go back to the dealer.... It's a 2012. My 2011 does that occassionally, im waiting until something falls off or its constant to worry about it.

Sounds like your front shaft is rubbing on the tranny skid plate. Worth getting under it and looking for signs of rub.

2012 are a LOT different than 08's. That skid plate you remove when you lift it is no longer there

Have you modified your jeep at all?

I know a few people have complained about the swaybar links having issues where the upper part of the link bolts to the swaybar.. Might want to look into it and see if there's any problems

Check swaybar for signs of rubbing. Happened on my 09 while I was completely stock.

Hoping by now you just took it to the dealership to get fixed? What was the issue? Curious since I have a 2012, I do not have the problem but who knows what will happen in the future.
