Severe Vibration 40-30MPH

Hey guys, I have a pretty strong vibration that shakes the whole cab on decel, only at the 40 to 30 MPH speed, and only on decel.
Tires, wheels, brakes have been ruled out.

Any thoughts?

does it happen in 2wd and 4wd, with or without hubs locked, trying to rule out some areas.

4x4 ruled out, does it with hubs locked or unlocked, 4x4 engaged or disengaged. Gets worse the colder it is outside. Hanger Bearings
Replaced a couple years ago...drive shaft U-Joints maybe? Everything seems tight when I check for play in drive shaft...

As for this topic, it completely boggles me. Vibration pretty much gone now (temps have warmed up to above 32F lately) but I expect it to come back when temps dip down to around 0*F... I'll have some updates. Thanks for the help guys

That's really good to hear man! I'm hoping it's that, cause its pretty bad now... Does anyone sell Greaseable hanger bearings for these? as this one was replaced 2 years ago...

And thanks for the compliments bud!
