Your right i should have answered the first question. I did not have the problem before changing the drives shafts. Here's some missing information i should have shared that lead me to rule out the drives shafts. (1) Paying closer attention to the shuttering i noticed its non-existant from a cold start until engine/trans warms up. No shuttering at any speeds, accel/decel, lug down no problem until things warm up. Once warmed up i can easily cause it to shutter cruising pretty much any speed at around 1800 rpm or less and slowely trying to accelerate. If i push the pedel down a little farther to increase the acceleration it goes away or push down farther it downshifts.
The driveshafts were ruled out in my mind because if they were the problem it would exist right from a cold start, out of balance, u-joints, etc.
From this forum and other sources the problem is pointing more towards the torque converter or trans. I'm leaning towards the torque converter.
Visual inspection of the driveshafts show no signs of hitting out of align on rocks or bad u-joints. With the new info, if you feel the drive shaft could still be the problem i'll pull it off and get it checked out.
Your input along ronjenx has been very helpful. Thank you
