Mine does the same thing but I have the 4.7. Not very loud but annoying just the same. I know from reading the post that this is common for the Hemi, but my 4.7 has a growl in eco mode when just cruising between 38 to 55 mph.

Just spoke with service manager at dodge dealer about vibration.He said they are aware of it.He said vibration is a bi-product of the Multi Displacement System and the computer should smooth out vibration after about 20-30 start cycles. Which by the why iam way over.If continues, bring in and have tech look.

well damn, that sucks. I am way over the 20-30 cycles too and it surely hasn't gone away and I haven't had the time to take it in and have them lie to me...lol. because I'm sure they have no clue as to why there's a vibration at 1300-1600 rpms. A few weeks ago I took the service manager for a ride and he also told me it was the MDS system and thats all.. OK then why does it do it when the MDS is bypassed?

Had the vibration/shutter on my old 2007 Ram 1500. NEVER went away... Fortunately I don't have it on the new 2011.

I guess we can just hope it will sooner or later go away.. I love the truck and the HP is incredible. I traded in my 05 Laramie 4x4 for this one and I had numerous performance mods, such as the CAI, Magnaflow dual exhaust, throttle body spacer and superchip, but I think this one is faster and has more power and all I've done so far is put in a K&N drop in filter, it already has the dual exhaust and I didn't really like the throttle body spacer,,, anyway lets just hope it goes away or they admit there is an issue and know how to remedy it..

I agree, lets just hope their right and it will smooth out on its own.
