rotate your tires and see if it changes the vibration.

Had a wicked bad vibration @ 45-50 & @ 70+. Had my tires rotated/balanced a few times to no avail but I knew the problem was in the tires, as I could hear an awful tire resonance. Ended up having my tires shaved and now my ride is smooth as silk with the usual A/T tire resonance.

broken belt, i think what was meant. I agree that could be it, try having the tires balanced first. When I bought my truck, the PO had Wal-Mart tires on it. Well, I had a vibration at highway speed. I had my trusted REAL mechanic (lol) balance them correctly, and it made a huge difference. So, I suggest not getting tires from Wal-Mart, they hire retards to work in the tire shop apparently.

Definitely get them balanced. One of the little weights fell off one of my rims and it threw everything off. start there before going any further.
