A few questions:

1. shaking or misfire?
2. how many miles?

If miles is near 100K the O2 Sensors might be the issue, I had that problem but my issue was a constant misfire above 3000 RPM.

The car has 152xxx miles
I don't think the car has misfire the thing is when you drive it on hill and your push the gas hard and it goes over 3000 MPR the car start shaking and don't take anymore gas I have to take the foot from the gas pedal and take it easy
The car runs pretty good and there is no lights on on dashboard
Please let me know if you have any idea
Thank you for your time

Almost sounds like gas starvation as in a dirty fuel filter. Perhaps some water contamination.
Try running some dry gas or other product thru the fuel to see if that helps.

Rubber U-Joints

Check and see if your has a rubber u-joint at the diff. It's used in RR, Bentley and Land Rovers. and Some Bimmers. It's used to smooth out the ride and soften the shock loading on the drive train. It's pretty beefey but, It does wear out.
I've wore out 4 on my 95 Disco and the 3 grand is about where is starts to be noticeable. The rubber one is on the rear of the transfer case and not the diff. P/N 26171120360. Even the normal iron u-joint exhibits the same condition if given the right circumstances.
