2013 vibration problem

I have a 13 250 ccsb 4x4 completely stock. At about 50mph I have this vibration that is driving me nuts. Does not feel like tires as they are brand new. Feels like a hop from the rear. I have read some tsbs but don't apply to short bed. I don't want to waste money with the dealer. Any help would be great

So, what exactly is the question? You feel a vibration from the rear at 50mph? How many miles on the truck, and when did you add the tires....

Put some weight in the bed and see if it goes away.

Trucks are gonna ride like trucks unloaded. Mine helped significantly adding about 300 pounds of tools and a toolbox and airing down my tires to 50 psi.

I beg to differ about the rear end hop not applying to short beds. Mine does it and it's a short bed. Not sure if it did it before my 75 gallon slip tank and toolbox as they were put in right away. Sure is annoying however....

yup short beds do the hop as well as long beds. Both my 14 and my 08 did it. 45-50 mph

What is causing this problem. Is there a fix. I got rid of my duramax after 6 trips to dealer and they couldn't find my vibration. That's why I bought the ford. Didn't feel it on test drive as it only noticeable if you are going a steady 50mph. Which happens to be the speed I travel in most of my commute. Very annoying

Mine smooths out at 50 but if it's the same thing it's supposedly the frame flexing iirc. There is a long detailed thread on here about it.

This vibration starting to drive me nuts. 50mph is most of the roads I travel to work every day.
