    Thanks, that is what i thought it was because of previous experience with other vehicle in the past. The only thing is it does not make any noises, but everything else was right on point. Thank you so much

Sounds like you have a failing wheel bearing. Once you start hearing it, does it get louder or more high pitched the faster you go? Do you hear it get quieter when you turn left at speed, or louder when you go right at speed? If any of those are a yes, I'd have the wheel bearing inspected and replaced if necessary.

    No problem at all. There's a quick check for a worn wheel bearing which sometimes can help you feel more secure about it. Jack up the offending wheel and grab the tire at the top and bottom. Shake the bejeezus out of it and see if you feel any looseness in the wheel. If you do, the bearing is definitely shot. The downside is, even if you feel no slop, it may still be bad - it's probably in the early stages of death is all. Still for the 5 minutes it takes, it may be worth doing it just to see if you can bolster your confidence that it's the problem.

Vibrating at speeds of 50 miles per hour and higher, and a heavy vibrating sound. When stopped the front passenger tire is much hotter than the drivers side.

for your own safty and that of those who ride it, get it to some repair facility that has a lift-because it is only a 2008, it might be under warranty, and it might be as simple as a badly balanced tire (threw a weight?). A frozen or hanging caliper, bad wheel bearing, or a tire that is badly under inflated might also be the cause-just get it checked out.

I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee which is starting to feel like I am having a flat tire or wheel falling off when I go above 45-50 miles per hour. This is in the front.

Could be a worn tie rod end. Allowing one tire to "wobble" compared to the other. Jack up one side, watch the steering wheel and try to wiggle the tire. Lower and check the other side in the same fashion. Ball joints could also be a culprit.

2.5, 6 cylinder miles 120K vibration/noise at 45 - 70 MPH maybe feel a little in steering wheel feels like under drivers feet tires look OK, drives straight etc. Pulled tires & did visual inspection...

Symptoms indicate tires out of balance. Can't necessarily tell by looking. If you want to troubleshhot yourself, try rotating front tires to back. If it gets better, you know the front tires were out of balance.

2000 jeep gc laredo 4x4 4.7 auto The front end shakes

if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

When driving the car shakes violently...when turn

It could be tires need balanced, but more likely it's one of your cv joints. That is basically a "drive shaft" on front wheel drive vehicles.

Vehicle hakes when driving 45 to 50 miles per hour

Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.
