What shape are the rear u-joints in? My u-joint on the driveshaft that connects to the rear axle was shot, which gave me a vibration. Did you try rotating the tires? Does the shake come from the front of the truck? There are many variables when it comes to vibrations on a truck. If possible, can you give more specifics about your truck? Is it lifted, miles, other recent maintenance that might have been done?

u joints are good checked today, leveling shackles on the front whole dash shakes cant tell exactly where its coming from

yes i had the tires rotated probably 3000 miles ago now and shake was there then, these tires have about 7,000 miles on them now, and the shake developed shortly after the new tires. I had them rotated and balanced 4000 miles later and still the shake, it wouldn't be an issue but i live up in utah now and the speed limits are 80mph so I'm going a lot faster then i was when i lived in California.

Yes just Monday I was able to bring it to the shop, think the main culprit was the left front tierod, but the tires were also a little out of balance and so was alignment. Now it feels much better, not like a Cadillac, but like an old ford with 33' tires should at 80

ageekwajeep,
Tyre Issue since they were New, I'd check the tyres themselves
it is not uncommon to have a Bad brand new tyre.
