trans lugs when in cruise

Early 99 f350 2wd drw. Recently my truck began lugging like I am on a wavy hwy when I had the cruise control on at 65 MPH. The longer I let it go the worse it got, nearly violent. Hit the throttle and it goes away but as it slows down to the 65-70 range it does it again. I thought that it was a cruise problem but I can recreate it with a steady foot. Any thoughts?

BTW-I thought it maybe something as simple as tire balance but those checked ok.

I found that the ebps tube had a hole in it at the last bend before the manifold. I guess it was flapping the ebv and causing the lugging. Changed it and all is good.
