Try a search - there are a lot of solutions people have come up with.

Most of the time it is the carrier bearing, or drive shaft contributing to the vibrations, and it can be remedied quickly. There are numerous threads detailing how to figure out which one it is, and exactly how to diagnose and treat it.

Welcome!

It is a 4X4. Here are some of the things that I have done to remedy this problem: I have road balanced and spin balanced the tires, I got an alignment done, I changed the front differential oil to see if there were any shavings that could be noticed. I have a couple of mechanic friends that have checked out the under carriage and everything seems tight as far as the bearings go... what else should I check...?

It's not a malfunction. It's a by-product of the lift on our trucks combined with the front differential.

Here's an easy test...drive at a speed where you're getting the vibrations...then switch to 4WD high. If the vibes go away, it's the common front diff problem. If that's the case, I suggest buying that bearing from ECGS as I mentioned in my last post. It's proven to eliminate the driveline vibrations in the front diff.

I'll be buying one from them soon and installing it myself.
