    Well everytime I gas it I get this severe vibration feels and sounds like its right under me. I was thinking it was my driveshaft, ujoints maybe? my friend looked at my shaft and said it looked ok. what are some other possibilities?

    thanks

    More than likely it is a u joint. Did it receintly start vibrating? If so, with the wheels blocked, put the tranny in neutral and crawl under the truck and turn the driveline by hand. If you get slop at either end where the u joints are, they are bad. Also, if there is binding, they're bad. Usually if you get a vibration that comes on out of the blue, it's a u joint.
