SOURCE: Shake in steering wheel
Hi! Although my collegue has pointed out the possibility of Discs being warped or out of true? Have you thought of the wheel balancing? also have you tried changing the rear wheels to the front? you may have a well imbalanced wheel or a Tyre with a side wall defective i.e. an Egg? (Buldge). Another problem on big tyres is they don't seat correctly, check the beading is settled in fully.
Hope this helps!

I just changed the brake pads and rotors on my father's 2001 Trooper that he recently purchased because they were shaking just like your were. He bought it from a mechanic shop and they had put new pads on it but it needed new rotors as well. If there is noticable groving on the rotors and new pads are installed it can create shaking, sometimes severe, when the brakes are applied. It sounds like this is what has happened with your vehicle as well. That being said, I don't consider it a huge safety issue to drive it until you get it fixed, just know that your braking will not be optimal and that it will take you longer to stop than if the brakes were working properly. All that being said, get them fixed ASAP so you don't have to worry about it. Who wants to mess with safety right? Good luck, hope this helps!

The traction control light will need to be diagnosed using a scan tool. There will be a code stored in the module. Once you know what code is present you will be able to start finding solutions. I assume that the ABS light or the check engine light is not on. If either of these is on it will disable the traction control and illuminate the light.
The brake pulsation sounds like warped rotors. It is pretty common. You said you changed brakes but didn't mention if you had replaced the rotors. Sometimes the rotors can be turned if they are thick enough making them true. If they are not thick enough new rotors will need to be installed. I would recommend having the new rotors turned before installing them.
It is also very important to torque the lug nuts that hold the wheels on when you are finished with the repairs. Failure to do this will almost always result in warped rotors. It is also important to remove any rust buildup from the hub (the part the rotor mount to).
