Default 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 rear driveline vibration

I have a 1999 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 gas 120,000 Km (80,000 miles) the truck has a vibration in the rear driveline that starts at approx. 95 KpH (55 MPH) and comes and goes up to 110 KPH (70 MPH). Vibration seems to change depending if the throttle is applied or the truck is coasting. I have only owned the truck for a few years and only since 105,000 Km and this vibration has been there the entire time. I ran the truck in 2WD with rear diff. up on jack stands and the vibration is definitely in the rear drive. Changed drive shaft universals and no change. There is a little bit of movement of the drive shaft yoke in the tail shaft housing (and a little oil leak but nothing major) Any ideas???

Welcome to RamForumZ!!! Wondering if the drive shaft is out of balance or if it may be in the rear end.

it sounds like the drive shaft may be bent or out of balance take it to a drive line shop to seen if they can check it
