This could be a variety of things. I have seen situations on these trucks where the carrier bearing rubber becomes a little less stiff and when the transmission sags just slightly, this causes a slight jump rope effect for the driveline which can cause this type of vibrating. Also, be sure to check the condition of the driveline itself. If it has even a minor crack, this type of vibration can occur.
