    So I took my truck the dealer this morning for the leaf spring TSB, pedal recall and new radio. I'm driving home when I notice that at 1800 rpm I can feel a pulsating vibration in the gas pedal, steering wheel and seat. It's not really bad but annoying as hell. This truck is an 09 double cab 4x4 TRD OR with 35,800 miles on it. I don't wheel the truck and it is completely stock. WTF could possibly be wrong? Thanks in advance

    Well, since you have 200 miles left on the factory warranty I would take it in ASAP and have Toyota fix it.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.

    No one has any idea what it could be? I'll have to wait till Monday and try to leave it with dealer.Like I said earlier it's not really that bad of a vibration just annoying.

    No smart@ss only when he drives under power lines. lol [​IMG]

    OP, we could sit here all night in-till the cows come home and tell you what we think it could be, but no matter what we tell you, you'll still have this problem with it.

    They may have not put the pedal back together correctly, this could be a safety issue. So it's better to be safe than sorry, have them take a look at it.
