Vibration with acceleration between 40-60

Hey guys I just bought a 95 Supercab F250 7.3 4X4 and when I push on the gas pedal just over 40mph through around 60 mph the truck vibrates. When I take my foot off the gas the vibration goes away. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Thanks for the help.

I just now noticed your join date. Welcome to the forum.

A simple way to check the U-Joints is to hold the brake and shift the truck from N to D then to R. If you hear any clanking, clunking, or clicking then you know for sure and just have to figure out which one it is.

Possible. Start checking 'em. It'd suck to loose a driveline on the highway at 70 MPH.

Snake, I don't know on that one. Sounds tranny related, I guess.
