I have a vibration in my truck at 55 mph. The dealership has changed at their cost 2 tires. They would not balance I was told. I had to leave the truck as they had to order the 2 tires. They put the new tires on. The mechanic test dove it again and the vibration is still there. I can feel it in the gas pedal and it makes a sound of a bearing growl and once you get past about 57 mph it goes away. I have to bring it back in on Monday. The mechanic thinks now it might be a driveshaft issue. The truck has 5500 miles on it and started doing it at about 2000 mile mark. I have the great Goodyear Wrangler ST's on the truck.. This is weird I wonder what it is?
Take care,
Matt

Is the vibration out back and not in the steering wheel?

If so, rotate the tires and are if it stays out back. That narrows it down

Wranglers are known for vibrations to begin with. Most likely its a U joint.

we had a brand new suburban with a vibration because of the drive shaft last week. But your dealer should have someone capable of determining where a vibration is coming from if they drove it.

Drop off back at dealer, let them sort it. It's under warranty.
