06 6.0 shakes at take off, turns, uphill..

My truck: 2006 6.0 75,000 miles
EGR delete, exhaust, SCT, leveled on 35s

When taking off from a stop, my truck shakes/ shutters?

it only does this at low speeds, more so up hills going 0-15mph.

Pulling a piece of equiptment it does it even worse starting from 0-15 mph.

It shifts fine, goes fine at highway speeds and even cruising around town its only when I start out.

Trans temp never gets above 132 degrees and around town it stays at 120 degrees.

I am pulling a Jeep, 2 four wheelers, and a dirt bike 2 hours each way on Memorial day weekend and just seeing if I will be ok. I

local Diesel shop around here wont touch the torque shift...

one person said it may even be a carrier bearing on the drive shaft?

thanks in advanc from one stroker to another!

I had a shake like that and my carrier was bad but it was the bushing around the bearing. It was very noticable when I shook the driveline.

My truck did this today pulling a 4200lbs boat and trailer up a hill. My said it was probably the carrier. Is this a major problem? Is this something that needs to be addressed tomorrow or just before I tow again?

our 06 F350 SRW is doing this.. shudder going from gas to off gas mainly in overdrive above 50mph ish.. but i notice its got a shudder and funny squeek in relation to the driveshaft spinning off the line , the more apparent the more i get on it, more torque, the more you feel or hear it.

It is not a major problem as long as you take it easy when you take off from a stop. But over time it is just going to keep getting worse and the vibrations can eventually lead to other problems such as U-joints or seals. So you don't want to put it off too long!
