    I am a new user and figured I would ask this question before I went down to the dealer. I have a 2008 Dual Cab 4x4 Long bed with automatic transmission and 4.0. I purchased used and currently have about 20k mikes.

    Anyways, I have a hum...probably more of a vibration that occurs only during acceleration and only at highway speeds. It seems to occur around 2100 rpm and will disappear when I shift to 4th and the RPM increases. It will also disappear if I continue to accelerate in 5th and the rpm increases above 2400-2500rpm.

    I could happen at other times, but I really notice it under the above conditions.

    Like the Truck, but it is really annoying as I spend most of my time at these conditions.

    Mine too at 60 mph give ir take 3
    miles. I've assumed the tires. In my case if it where a bearing it would do it accross the entire speed range

    like Honda accord 2003 my wife owned -- there is alot of road noise that comes up from the road. I want to sound proof the floor board

    If you search some you will likely find that this is pretty normal on V6 automatics. Toyota has a TSB for the shuddering around 25MPH (supposedly a new rear trans mount fixes it) but I have found nothing about the 1800-2100 rpm vibration in 5th. My 05 does it too. It's rather annoying, but I suspect they all do it and only some of us notice.

    i have an 09 or and i have always had a slight viberation that could be felt in the steering wheel and the gas pedal. If i turn my wheel slightly one way or the other i can find the sweet spot where there is no viberation. i took it to the dealer when i first got it and they wernt able to find anything.. so i just live with it
