Default crazy vibration, twice in 5 months

Hi have a 2010 Ram 2500hd hemi 4x4 with 8 foot box. Twice in the last 6 months I'm travelling down the highway and the truck starts to shake so much I almost lose control. This happened once at 65 mph then yesterday at 50 mph. The tires are well balanced and nothing seems out of whack. I drive this truck every day on city Streets and the highway. does anyone have any clue as to what is going on??? The vibration is so bad even the guy behind me pulled over to see what was going on....the truck is literally vibrating so bad I had to brake hard and pull over. I got back on the road and everything is fine. I brought it up to 80 mph and it runs great. Can anyone help????

That's the infamous Dodge "Death Wobble". I'm sure someone will chime in on how to fix it. I think they change strut arms or bushings. Try a search and you'll get something.

assuming you have 4x4 it would be the famous death wobble.

If not the death wobble, maybe a u joint seizing up on the driveshaft?
