This when you hit the brakes? If so you might have calipers locking up and/or dirt in the line...Also, dont forget the F-ed up REAR suspension I tried helping you on.

You could always just go back to leaf springs. A LOT easier to maintain and it doesnt look like you really wheel it anyways.

Get rid of that HIDEOUS setup in the rear and go back to leaves...You can make a really nice setup with them. Also, get rid of that NP208 transfer case. You have a slip yoke driveshaft and at LEAST 10 inches of lift...not a good Idea.
