Bumpy take off

Truck runs great, drives great, however I have a "bump start" feel on launch from a stop. Very annoying. Drive shaft already replaced but they are looking at it again this week. Too much grease in the slip yoke causing the drive shaft to "hang" or stick and release when the brakes are released and you accelerate. It feels like the axle moves out from under the truck and then the truck moves. I can only feel it in the seat. You can put the truck in neutral and it won't do it as it takes the pressure off of the shaft and it equalizes.
I like its looks and the power of the 4.0L. It is very well built. Features of more expensive trucks are already on these truck. The engineers listened to consumers apparently.
Needs bigger drain trough for draining the oil. Longer hood prop rod so the hood goes up higher. Different material in the seats. The holes catch all the dirt.
