I love my truck.

I just had to say it. The darn thing gets pretty good gas mileage, it's HUGE (plenty of room for the kid and a bunch of junk we take with us when we go riding), it's bad-beepbeepbeep looking, and it has tons of power.

Hey, an aside....I'm getting a small vibration at about 40mph and again at 60mph. I checked my u-joints, and the only thing I found was a tired center bearing support. I replaced that, but the vibration still exists. It doesn't feel like it's at the tires...somewhere more in the drivetrain. Anyone go through the same thing?

Hey, yeah, love my truck too. Ummm, I think there was a thread not too long ago with the exact same thing. I belive the final determination was u-joints. Maybe some of the barings right around there. Don't remember exactly but you could look around at some of the other threads. If you don't find it I am sure Marc or someone will be along shortly. Good Luck with the truck seizure...lol

re check u-joints

i had the exact same prob on my 01. i had checked all my u-joints and the seemed good, while talking to an old civilan in my shop (usaf vehicle maintenance) he siad the wieght of the truck might have rolled back and tightened the joints back up. sure enough i moved the truck and set the park brake before i put it in park and check again and the joint at the diff was shot to heck. hey if it don't work it is worth a shot just to be sure

If what you are calling the center support bearing, is the carrier bearing, this could very well cause the vibration. Afte you check the U-joints this would be the next place I would check.

TS 6-position chip, wicked wheel, 6637 mod, Warn hubs, Sonnax valve and Tricumulator springs, straight pipe, ion wheels, High pressure Oil crossover, ATI tripple disk torque converter, John Wood valvebody.

Yep, that's what I'm talking about. I checked the u-joints, they seemed fine. I checked the carrier bearing, it was worn. I replaced it, but the vibration remains.
