Default 06 SLT 4x4 1500 shaking

The back of my truck is visibly shaking up and down between 55-60 mph. its not the tires i know for a fact. however i do have some slop in the transfer case and i am wondering if this could be the issue or do i need to look else where.

thanks

Gotta be tires or wheels. I've seen tires balance perfectly on a machine, but shake your teeth out from broken belts. Switch them front to back, see if the shake doesn't move to the front. Really bad shocks could cause a hop I suppose. Bet it's a bad belt. Having a weight fall off second choice.

I also had a set of tires that balance fine but shook the truck so hard it broke wheel studs, if this stated suddenly and you live in cold country check for any ice stuck on the back side of the rims.
