    Last night my truck began to shutter (whole thing shakes real bad). Its done this before while I was towing a trailer but only when the truck was beginning to move. I drove it in all gears to see if it continued and it would do it again at approximately the same time. I haven't hooked up a tach to completely rule out the driveshaft, could it be the tranny or axle? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    It seems to go away after I get going and seems to occur when it shifts but not completely. I'll replace the tranny mount to see if that fixes it.

    I crawled under the truck this afternoon and checked the
    tranny mounts and u joints. Both seemed okay, but I'll still probably replace the tranny mounts. Is there anything else that might cause the truck to shake as described above?
