Question Vibration is driving me crazy

i have a 2004 ram 1500 4x4. when accelerating there is a vibration coming form the drivetrain. when i let off the gas the vibration stops. the ujoints look good, but when shifting back and forth from drive to reverse there is a small clanking noise coming from the rearend/drive shaft. does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

it sounds like ujoints to me. grab ahold of the drive shaft and try rotating back and forth to check for play.

they are cheap enough so you could just replace them..

Make sure the bolts thru the coupling are all tight. Probably U joints, though.
