Anybody getting a wheel or driveline vibration when towing? Maybe the roads up here after the winter, but hooked a 24" enclosed trailer on and arounf 70 get weird vibration.

Thought it may be the trailer tires, but seem fine.

Have to had the trailer tires balanced? I'd check that. Back when I had a full time 4wd sub, when I towed I would get a driveline vibration from the front end due to the tounge weight pulling the rear down. Sucked.

I had a similar problem with my cargo trailer. Except, the problem would go-away when the trailer was loaded. Shook when empty only. No visible tire problem, until I jacked-up the trailer and spun the wheel by hand. Then I could see that the tire was deformed due to failed belts. Anyway, the tires on the trailer may be worth a closer look.
