Vibration from where?

Hey, I have an 00 F350. I have a vibration problem. It starts to happen around 40 mph when accelerating or constant throttle. It stops when off the throttle. It is the worst around 40-50mph, but continues after that.

I have been looking on hear and some people say U-joints. My Dad said he read about transmission/torque converter problems that happen around 40 mph. Any thoughts?

Check the carrier bearing if its got one, thier bad about the rubber going out of them. And if the u-joints are rusted there wont have any play but will be stiff.
