hoping

when my truck reaches about fourty five m.p.h. it feels like it hops, and it is pretty rough. as i accelerate more it smooths out but never go away completely. does anyone have an idea of what it could be? i put new wheels and tires on my truck and that did not slove the problem.

Hopping

You could put the truck in neutral when it is hopping and eliminate some parts of the drive train as the culprit. It could be a drive shaft out of balance, they have weights on them, look for a shiny spot where one flew off? When did it happen, all at once or did it get worse over time? Can you tell if it is coming from the front or back?

Sorry Just some questions that popped into my head that could lead to finding the source.
