vibration

well ive developed a vibration at 40 to 50 mph.its not a fast vibration its more a up and down feeling in the seat.if i accelerate above 50 or let off or brake below 40 it goes away.im thinking driveline u-joints/carrier bearing but ive never had a truck with a carrier bearing before.they all look original at 109,600 miles.would this be a good place to start?
thanks for any tips/advise

Have you done anything new to the truck like put a lift or bigger tires on? I have a 6" lift and I have a vibration from 47-49mph. I replaced the carrier bearing and all U-joints on driveshaft and it's still there. I am going to shim my carrier bearing down a little to see if that helps because someone else had luck with it recently.

no truck is stock no lift.except for m/t wheels with stock size tires.i dont know if it did it before wheels and tires because dealer installed them before i bought it.
thats a sharp looking truck you got.

My truck just did this. At ab 45 it would bounce a bit. Anything above and below it wouldnt do it. Had a bubble in the sidewall about 6in long. Purchased new tires and no more problems.
