    I have searched and have not been able to find another thread discussing a problem like this. I have a bad vibration from the front end when going under 5 mph. It gets a a little better if I engage 4wd but still pretty noticable. I have no vibration at all over 5mph. Does it while braking, coasting and under throttle. But only under 5 or 6 mph. All other vibration complaints I read about usually involve a high mph vibration, which over 5mph I am completely smooth. Stock 4x4 suspension, only larger duratracs (265-75-16). Seems way to bad to be from aggressive tread tires. Any thoughts??.....

    Are you sure its from the front? Have you checked the drivers side CV shaft for the bearing being worn out? I had the same thing but it was the rear driveline causing it and it would vibe from start up to 5mph and right at 20-30mph drove me nuts. Also check the wheel bearings I see you have an 05 so the front wheel bearings would be a good start along with the CV shaft bearing. Just make sure everything is tight and lubed.

    Yes it is in the front. Was thinking a CV axle also. Do you mean the wheel bearing when you say CV bearing?
