Between 60 and 65 MPH, I get a shaking in the steering wheel, not below 60 and not above 65MPH. Have had rims checked for straightness, replaced and balanced tires, new ball-joints, no change. Have not tested it in 4WD, could there be something wrong there?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi Fstrickland
Do you have those big mud whamper tires on truck with some miles on them? And if I remember correctly is there a steering damper of the centerlink. If so a weak one will cause problem.
Let me know

Nope, No swamper tires, just stock sized All Terrain tires with less than 500 miles on them. Had same problem with last set of tires that had 72000 miles and just figured the shake was due to them being worn out. Will check out the steering dampner. Thanks for the help, wish I could donate more, you guys and gals help a lot.

Your welcome Have wheel bearings been checked for proper torque? And alignment on the money?
If suspect tire switch fronts to rear, if it shakes the seat you know it is tires if not got to be bearing or Cv joint
Good Luck
