Vibration when accelerating

My truck gets a very noticable vibration whenever I accelerate, in any gear. Plus there are some noises, clanking, dinging? also. I can't describe the noises very accuratly but the vibration is very noticable and is worse the harder the acceleration. What could be the cause?

Seems to be a lot of these threads going on we should have one mega vibration thread as a sticky or something.

I have a fix to everyones problem , ive found out how to fix the shutter when starting off and the vibration when driving . if anyone needs to know how you fix these aggravating problems . the fix cost about $160 bucks. buy 3 new ujoints ( i used moog brand ) , drop the center bearing down about an 1 1/2 and put shims in , bolt everything back up and your problem is fixed . the problem is the drive shaft angle . why toyota let this problem go as long as they are , its crazy , and they still dont have a fix for it . the ujoints are in a bind because of the angle . on these trucks , even though the ujoints look good while theyre bolted to the truck , you will be able to tell once you take them off . the ujoints take care of the vibration while driving and dropping the center bearing takes care of the shutter starting off . if you have any questions , just pm me .
