Does this sound like the TC issues discussed in this thread?
Hi Airportff, I am experiencing exactly what your experiencing. Did the dealer find out what was wrong? Or did they tell you it was normal? Is there and update, or TSB to the Shudder on light throttle to maintain 70 kms per hr? Supposedly it is a known issue, any updates of fixes yet? TCC and MDS shudder at the same time causes shudder under light throttle application at around 70 kms/hr, anyone? I found this post in the Dodge talk forum, anyone have similar symptoms?

I started this threat here (http://***************/forum/4th-gen-...own-issue.html
) under "Getting some drivetrain vibrations" but decided I should start a new one tiled better to reflect the issue - to better help anyone else searching or having this issue
In essence at specific points in acceleration, usually the mid and near shift points, I get vibrations. Giving steady slight gas (like driving at steady speed in traffic), then accelerate a little I'm getting noticeable vibrations.
So took it dealer several times and after invoking Dodge resolution group, the service manager who was very helpful, and 5 start master tech team dealers call, I got a final statement.
They said "This shutter is a known issue and is caused by the MDS and TCC (torque converter control) activating at the same time. We are aware of the widely reported problem but have no resolution available at this time."
Two options: gun it and drive fast all the time or learn to live with a shutter/droan in your $30,000 truck.
