    So I've noticed this recently with my 03 4x4 Auto V6...

    From around 25-30mph, I can feel a pretty distinct, but muffled vibration by the floorboard around dead pedal area.. it ALMOST feels like tire rubbing, but I'm going straight... The sensation goes away when going faster than 32mph...

    This occurred for quite a while today on one stretch of a road.. but then for a later leg of the trip, I couldn't reproduce it...

    I'm only asking because I know the drive shaft is right below the floorboard on the driver side.. I can feel vibration when I'm accelerating which I assume is normal. However I'm wondering if the above sensation has something to do with the drive shaft.. Shifting into Neutral has no effect.

    Best case scenario would be if it was just vibration caused by the road surface..

    Okay did more testing today.. the "rumble strip" type vibration at 22mph occurs only in 2WD.. popped it into 4HI and was not able to reproduce it... So what does this tell me? Front Diff?
