Did your temperature warning light turn red, and how long was it on before you pulled over?

Could you see the water separating from the oil on the dipstick? What do you mean it seemed watery?

There's the problem! RealOEM doesn't specify the monthly overlaps, i.e. production week and day. Makes sense now as to why the parts have been good for me, I'm 01/99 so no confusion on changeover.

Ohh yes, that is more than likely what the problem is. Driveshaft. Sorry if this is repetitive, did you mark the driveshaft and flange so that you were able to align it back up exactly where it was?

Your center diff bearing could be causing issues for sure, I'd check that out too. When did the vibration start? Did you hit a pothole, get new tires/wheels, etc.
