Truck shakes at idle

My 7.3 idles rough enough to shake the truck a little at idle. Is this normal?

These arent lil kid motors.. as long as its idling smooth i wouldnt worry too much. a HPX and a RR might soften her up a bit.

It depends on how bad the shake is. Without actually being there its hard to tell.

If its idling smooth could be as simple as a worn motor mount, but mine shakes a little because my ICP sensor is a little wonkie, causing it to idle rough. If I unplug it, the idle smooths out and the shake is gone. I also have the 1900 RPM shakes, that also goes away when the ICP is unplugged
