Jake :

Hi there, thanks for the question

Jake :

if your only getting teh vibration while accelerating then it sounds alot like driveshaft vibration.

Jake :

if the vehicle is 4x4

Jake :

start by checking for play in the front driveshaft and then check the rear driveshaft if the front checks out.

Jake :

check the u-joints for wear and play, but also look for any places when it looks like it may have thrown a weight that was used to balance it.

Jake :

if you need anythign else let me know

Jake :

if not, just please remember to leave a kind rating.
