    I'd rather not think of all the $ spent :(
    So I had a slight vibration at 18-21 MPH. It didn't matter if speeding up, decelerating or cruise. Smooth ride before and after. Took it into the dealership today for a once over and they said my axles are possibly bent but atleast the wheel bearings are bad. This is not a warranty item.

    I do use my truck but I don't abuse it. It's never had a trailer behind it and never a load other than camp gear. I don't believe I've ever touched the bump stops.

    I'll be fighting about this but I wanted you all to be aware so you can watch for it.

    I have a 2018 2wd sport that I just bought. My vibes are between 20-25mph. I feel it decelerating and cruising in this range. Not on acceleration. Have an appt tomorrow to get it looked at. There has been a prior tsb for this for non offroad models. Sometimes a steering damper and new springs are installed.

    Every truck I’ve owned has vibrated somewhat, there’s a lot of moving parts with the drive train and also struts, springs, leaf packs, large tires. But I’m sure you know all this.

    I’d be worried when there’s a noticeable vibration at all speeds.

    I had a wierd vibration on take off and coming to a stop. The leaf pack wasn't sitting right on the passenger side axle. Dropped the u bolts and recentered the pin in the hole, retorqued everything making sure stuff was lined up and no more vibes.

    This is what I told going in.
    @Grossomotto I'm with you on that. Just shocked at needing bearings and axles at 25000 miles.

    @JaCado I was sure hoping for something like that!
