'05 ram 2500 vibration
 
I'm wondering if anyone knows what might be the cause of a vibration I get when accelerating from a stop up to about 25 mph. 145k on the truck w/AT.
Could it be a u-joint + if so how do I tell which one?
Thanks

The best way to check the u-joints is to index mark and remove the shaft to check for looseness or binding. Check your engine and trans mounts as well.

I'll give that a shot. Thanks for the advice!

Wasn't there a TSB on this ?

Sounds like a driveshaft center bearing issue to me. Especially if it is extended cab or 4-door and has a 2 piece shaft? I say that due to a u-joint issue gets worse with speed. Its not going to only do it till 25mph. The issue you are describing is usually caused from center bearing/isolator failure. Or improper driveshaft angle due to a suspension lift. If the latter is the case, the lift companies actually make brackets that mount between the frame and the driveshaft center coupling to bring the angle closer to its stock location....If is not lifted you may just have a worn out center assembly...
