Question Truck shakes a bit when I put it in 4 wheel drive??

The truck has 106,000 miles on it and when I test drove it, I decided to throw it in 4x4 to see what happens. Well the truck shook a bit and kind of had a wobble , it went away but is this something to be worried about?? I was going about 30mph , put it in Neutral, turned the knob to 4x4, then put it back into drive. Any advice would be great because I am buying it on wed. and would like to know if it is something serious so if it is, i can start looking for a different truck.
thanks guys!

Try it w/o throwing it into neutral. Also have the front drive shaft pulled out and check the joints for looseness or binding.

Don't have details but read the other day there's a TSB out about it, dodge says it's nothing.
