With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I believe Toyota knows there is a problem with steering between 40 and 60 miles per hour. There might be a TSB for it but I wouldn't know for sure since I drive a PowerWagon.

I agree that the most likely cause is something amiss with your wheels / tires.

The first thing you could do that doesn't cost anything....Is rotate your tires and see if the *feel* of the vibration changes. If the steering wheel doesn't vibrate as much, then chances are....one of your wheels/tires is out of balance.

...I got the same thing...

...feel a vibration when I hit about 50mph and gets worse up to about 70...

...I assume it is a thrown wheel wieght...Ive been planning to rotate tires and see what happens...havent got to it yet. Maybe this weekend I have read about a quick cheep mod for the drive train vibration...

...but I think im going to do the carrier bearing mod too. This should help with the drivetrain vibration at about 25mph...
