    Been having a vibe around 65 since new, now have 34k on the clock. Dealer says they all have them. Well I ran the truck parked today to about 2k rpm(65 mph if I were on the highway) and low an behold if I keep it there the truck vibes. Can any of you try this for me and confirm that they ALL do it???? Thanks

    Not sure what year your truck is, but I did this on my '07 with the 1GR, and have no vibes at 2k rpm.

    I suggest you test drive another truck at the same dealership to see if "they all have them" because I surely don't but I have an 09 but it's the same truck.

    Much better. This is a slight vibe more of a buzzing/rumble. Plus Ive always had it. But just noticed it happens when parked and revving. When driving I feel it in the pedal and the wheel.

    I have the same or similar. I had the dealer rebalance & it went away. I still have some vibration about the same speed, mostly on asphalt, seems to go away on concrete. I'm going to have my dealer check it out again.
