Under acceleration? Check your carrier bearing.

If you don't have a carrier it could be u joints. Get under the truck and grab the drive shaft and see how much you can move it around. Look for play in the joints.

Sounds like wheel bearings to me!! Check for play in and out on the wheel.

friend of mine had a weird vibration on his 6 liter, turned out it was the tires just slightly breaking traction but not fully burning out. Wasn't even wheel hop, just a slight skip at 3/4 throttle
