Loud vibration/shake at 55mph

I get a vibration/shake at 55mph and continues as you speed up. I checked all axle joints, bearings, and drive shaft joints and everything's good. I had the tires balanced but nothing is solved. I was wondering if anyone encountered this mystery or has any idea what it could be? thanks

4x4 or 2WD? If 4x4, manual hubs, and are they locked?

I'll be keeping my eye on this thread as I have vibration from 60mph up. If I keep it under 60, there's nothing.

Possibility of the tires being off weight? Maybe have your tires rotated or re balanced... I have had the same problem and got it resolved by having the tires rotated and re-balanced...
Hope that helps...

All the balancing weights still on driveshafts. U haven`t hit a deer or something rolled up under the truck possibly hitting rear shaft. just covering bases.
