Wrench Vibration

My father in laws rhino has a vibration in 4x4 only. In 2 wheel drive it is good. I'm kinda thinking it is a u joint or bent drive shaft, but everything looks good. Any ideas that would help me out would be appreciated.

my 07 660 has done it since new... I have read before that most people have the same issue. I think it goes under normal and unexplained.

NO MO RHINO FOR ME.....

I have an 06 and it does the same. My brother has an 07, his does it too. I'd say it's inherent to the 4x4 usage.

My 06 did the same thing. I know for a fact that it did not vibrate for the first year or so but I can't figure it out either. Mine is a very tight vibration only when 4x4 is turned on. Hopefully someone on here has figured out what it is...

Remind

kinda seems like everyones rhino has a vibration...mine vibrates but very little in 4x4 and I drive the living sh1t out of it and it seems the harder I drive it the more it loves it.....not like his, like it's like a shimmy more than vibration. I'm giong to change the oil in the front end, change wheel bearings, change u-joints and see if that makes a differance.

some rhinos are worse then others but they all pretty much have a vibration in 4x4.. its a off road machine you can expect it to vibrate some.
my 09 700 has vibrated sence the day i took it for a test drive before i bought it.. we test drove 4 different rhinos and i picked the one with the least amount of vibration.. all of them where the same model 09 non sport model 700 and each of them was different to drive...
