Question vibration/shaking after about 50 miles

hey there ive got a 94 ram 1500 laramie slt 5.2L V8 with 182,xxx miles. its got a starting issue but thats in a different thread, and it runs ok on short little trips. i recently visited a buddy 120 miles away. after about 50 miles it started to vibrate a little bit and after about 60-70 miles it started to shake really bad but it made it down. on the way back it vibrated at about 20 miles and started shaking at around 50 miles. after about 100 miles it took forever to accelerate and would lose speed going uphill even with the gas pedal all the way down... that was a few weeks ago and now it runs fine again on short trips... i have no idea whats wrong so any ideas would be helpfull... thanks guys!

I drillied a 1/2 inch hole in the center and used a large philips screw driver and just kept grinding it out then threaded a large but short bolt in the hole

My cat went out in my 98 ram. My truck just stopped sounding ballsy one day and wouldnt accelerate past 15 mph or make it up the smallest hill without stalling. Took it to the shop and found out it was the cat. so the cat may be just one of the issues.
