My 91 dakota 3.9 4x4 has a bad wobble starting at 35km. I had the driveshaft rebalanced and straightend a bit but very little change. I switched each tire and nothing. I checked all mounts, bolts, and crossmembers. Still big wobble. I have a feeling it is in the transfer case. If I pull the main driveshaft off and put it in 4 wheel and drive it a bit will this tell me anything?

Pam, when you say it "wobbles" I think of something in the front end, or tires, but since you said you changed the tires, or rotated them that would rule the tires out I would think.
As for removing the rear drive shaft and using 4 wheel drive, that should work, I had a friend and his rear U joint went bad and we removed drive shaft and drove it home in 4 whel drive.
So yes it should work without any problems, so if it is your rear drive shaft then that will help you locate it.
Good Luck and let us know what you find.

my knowledge of the 4x4 system is lacking but couldn't it be a bent hub or axle?

I would not run the front end on solid road its
very hard on the cv joints

You probably have a bent rim, or lose frontend
parts

Have a garage with a good reputation take a look
when frondends become that bad they also become
dangerious

Please get it checked out by a good mech he will
know with just 1 ride what is going on
