Drivetrain issues. Read my issue, maybe you can help...
This has been an ongoing issue. If the truck is in 4wd, it will vibrate BADLY, as to where the dash actually moves up and down. It feels like something out of balance.
Wont do it with the hubs unlocked, and the transfer case unlocked

Wont do it in 4LO, cant get above 10mph.
Wont do it in 2WD at all
Took out the front shaft, locked the axle in, locked the case in, wont do it.
Does it in reverse and forward.
Replaced BOTH Universals in front driveshaft, had the shaft checked for balance, and taken apart and inspected by a VERY REPUTABLE shop. Replaced the transfer case with a known good case. Still have the bad vibration in 4wd. The dash literally shakes up and down. The track bar, and radius arms are tight, and under 5000 miles. The front axle was serviced under a year ago with new universals and a new gear set.
SO, what could cause the issue I am having? Its almost like its in the front axle, but WHAT COULD IT BE?
Rear axle has been totally serviced, and all new universals in the rear driveshaft except for one, it still is good, and moves freely.
Too many projects. Too little time...
