are you talking a front to back surge that happens once and a while or a constant vibration?

My Guess without knowing how many miles or how hard they were is a Torque converter sudder/slipping or clutches startign to slip under load.

Change the Trans fluid and filter to start, and take a look at the fluid coming out (burnt is not a good sign, nor is seeing particles in the fluid).

You probably shouldn't be towing 110,000 lbs. You're truck is just telling you it's pissed..
