vibration

Hey everyone ive developed a weird vibration and reading on older posts sounds like it could be tires u-joints tranfercase or rear end and im just trying to narrow it down a bit more. so my problem is starting at about 55 mph on up but not on hard acceleration or after you coast only seems to be when your throttleing to cruiz constant so if anyone ahas had similar problems it would be a great help for any andvice thanks in advance

Yep sounds like a u-joint.

Next time you drive it stick it in 4x4 if it is a 4x4 and see if the noise changes
