Cool vibration

I'm new to the Dodge family. I recently purchased a new Dodge Laramie Mega Cab diesel 4x4 with 410 gears in the rear end. I began to notice a vibration throughout the truck between 65 and 75 mph with only 3000k on the truck. It now has 6000K and the dealer hasn't been able to correct the problem. 1st checked tires, continued, 2nd replaced drive shaft, continued, their replaced rear housing, ring and pinion gear which showed some improvement, but still vibrates. The dealer says the have one other truck with a similar issue with the same set up as mine. This is my first Dodge truck since I left Ford behind for poor customer service. I hope I didn't make a huge mistake. Is anyone else experiencing this in their 2010 diesel truck and does anyone have a solution.

I'm not familiar with the new 4X4's but do they come with a front steering stablizer shock?

steering stab would only cover up a problem.

I read somewhere that the torq converter or something has break in tabs or something like that that don't always "release" and it causes vibration issues.

not to be picky but 6000k miles would be 6 million miles....you should have a little vibration by then.

The TCC clutch has to be broken in but there are no tabs that I ever heard of and while TCC shudder can be a problem, vibration froma converter isn't. We have a 1500 in the shop right now with a similar problem and we're looking into the ring and pinion carrier as a possibility.

As for a tire imbalance, I can about guarantee that was ruled out long before any hard parts were put in.

How did you rule out the tires/wheels? Did you have them Road Force Balanced?

I had a similar problem in a gmc. Solved vibration by balancing tires with a balancer using the lug nut holes (true center) not the center hub. Years ago we spun the tires on the vehicle and could get it dialed right in. That way the complete driveline was taken into play. Hope this helps.
