I know this is even less likely as when I was under there there only thing I found was a wire with a protective shield laying across the driveshaft next to the trans. Am guessing it was some kinda sensor and it was plugged in to where it needed to go. I just lifted the wire and pushed it back to an area I could loosely zip tie it to keep it from resting on the shaft. In the back of my mind I am trying to convince myself it was the vibration that was causing the sensor to error and in turn the trans to act up... Ill be back here in the next day or so to let everyone know how foolish that kinda thinking was
LOL, but don't kid yourself. You never know maybe there is another problem and you just haven't discovered it yet.
Be sure that nothing is touching the driveshaft, you can cause an issue with the driveshaft such as an inbalance then you have to have that replaced if it cannot be balanced. If you take the driveshaft out and have it balanced or replace it with one from dynotech you will be amazed how smooth these trucks really can run. The problem with these trucks is they have excessive you joint angle, atleast with the X axis of the u-joint not too much the Y axis, the Y axis angle will change with bumps and suspension change but the X axis is horrible because of the alignment between the transmission and axle. The pickups have better alignment then the vans but still off some. Anyways, maybe you can get the dealer to do a service for free.
