Tires, driveshaft, the dreaded deathwobble, maybe something else...

Without more info it's impossible for anyone to help you.

Does it occur more on coast or accel? is it with it in gear or is it speed related only? Where do you feel it specifically?

If I let off the gas mid shake it'll stop. It happens usually around 50 mph and the whole truck shakes

I would jack up the truck and check tightness in the front end first, those trucks are famous for balljoints, tierods, wheelbearings. If all thats tight I would look into the tires and if they are balanced, maybe you lost a wheel weight or somthing along the way. all i know is I would really make sure I checked the front end before I took the trans out.

Sound like u-joints on driveshaft going bad.

Can you pop in neutral at those speed to check if it go away or it still there.

Check Front end to make sure it tight no sloppy or loose.

If Previous Owner say it torque convertor so can you check flex and torque convertor to see if it been loosen. But I don't believe this one it would shaking all times plus rattle noise.

I see. Well, good luck chasing your tail trying to figure this out then. Just start flinging parts at it until it is fixed or you are out of money.

First I read all of your posts in this thread. Then I gave you advice that you should listen to based on what I read in those posts. Then I said good luck. Should I start being a dick?
