Default 08 vibration when pulling off

i have a 08 ram 1500 hemi 4x4 big horn that i just bought. when i am pulling off from a stop i feel a slight vibration from the rear end. it almost feels like im spinning a little while sitting on gravel. theres no noise or anything. i want to know if this is normal or sound like something messed up in the rear. once ive pulled off its fine, no virbrations or anything. i know the truck has an anti spin real differential( i think thats what its called) is that the same as a post traction rear. would that be making the vibration. any help or ideas is greatly apprectiated. thanks

Mine had a split driveshaft and had to be replaced, something about it getting the pinion angle outta line when taking off, mine was really bad when I pulled a load,the drive shaft dodge replaced it with has a harmonic balancer in it and they removed the hanger bearing altogether
now its much older than yours but ya might wanna check the hanger bearing if ya have one,

CanadianRam will become famous soon enough

I have the same truck, just bought it too, and that sounds like the ESP (Electronic Stability Programme) is kicking in when you get the vibration. Unless it vibrates at any take off speed?? Then at which I would bring it it to get checked out, as I'm sure your still under warranty
