Are you still under warranty? Did you take it to a mechanic to diagnose it? I'd only be guessing. Internal issue with the transmission, U-joint, rear gears, wheel bearing, transfer case, driveshaft, tires, etc?

You shouldn't have to live with it, especially if it's still under warranty. DEMAND that they find out what it is. As Tom mentioned, if it's a bad wheel bearing, over time the wheel will loosen and come off, and you don't want that to happen as you're driving down the road.
