    I occasionally get a light/mild vibration/noise/hum from the front end. It seems to only happen between 20 and 40 mph (maybe it's happening at higher speeds, but I definitely can't feel or hear it). Anyone else have a similar deal w their rig, or heard of someone having a similar deal?

    Thanks!

    I think i know what you're talking about. I've been meaning to ask about it for a while now. I sort of get a funny vibe from the engine/tranny between 1500 and 1900 rpm. It's more pronounced if i accelerate slowly and hold the throttle in that rev range. It's also much more noticable if you are sitting in the passenger seat. Is that sort of like what you're hearing/feeling? I've kinda gotten used to it but every now and then i wonder about it.

    What engine do you have?

    So don't sweat the noise/vibration? I'm concerned some costly suspension stuff may be coming up?

    I think mine is front diff related. It was way worse when I had the worthless diff drop spacers in. All my fron suspension is brand new so its not that, on mine at least.
