yes...been to the dealer for it 4 times now...they say it's normal and finally let me drive another truck comparable to mine...brand new 07....and 08 both did the same thing, they say that it's supposed to when it's not in severe conditions and not to used 4x4 hi and lo when not in those conditions...
but my problem is also the brakes shaking 95% of the time in just regular 2wd mode, 4x4 shake was just an add on problem lol

Yes, before leveling and after with 2".. Only vibrates when I stomp on it,.. But goes away after I let off, or cruise at a normal speed..

I can live with it..

I'm happy to report that my (07 Ram 1500 QC 4x4) has no vibrations at all, while in 4x4 mode.

I remember jumping into my truck, and switching to 4x4 mode, looking for vibrations as soon as I heard about the (06 QC 4x4 vibration) problem. Something I never found, as I mentioned above, and the weather was great here at the time. This is the main reason why I put up the poll. Your dealer is full of sheep-dip, there has to be a specific reason why some trucks have it, and others don't. Wow - this is the first time I've heard of it.

I used to have a vibrations whenever I was driving the truck. I finally changed out the stock crap Goodyears for soem BFG's and the vibration went away. I wouldn't say that is the same thing you have though.

I drive my truck in 4 wheel drive most of the winter at speeds up to 80km/h and I never noticed it. In fact the truck is in 4wheel hi right now. I will check it in the morning, maybe it is something I over looked.

vibration

seems like the heavy duty shocks like the off road package or the new rancho keps the truck from vibrating from what i have been ready so it seems that the weaker shocks used in the other models might be the reason for it also was looking and skyjacker now makes a leveling strut for the 06 and newer trucks for 129 thought i would share that not sure ofspecs but pricce is alot better

Yup, mines got the 4wd vibe goin on. Makes me mad :VHOT: . I like the truck otherwise, but I am an anal perfectionist, especially with my trucks, and any one little thing that is wrong I like to fix, and this 4wd vibe, can't be fixed! Uuuuugggggh! I gotta go call my shrink!!! On a more serious note, I am going thru the NYS Lemon Law for this very issue. Hey Mudchucker, has it been a week yet?!!! Hey, at least I didn't do the 5 paragraph post I usually do!!!

i noticed it a little the one time i had it in full time 4 wheel drive on smooth roads. i don't notice it at all when it is in auto mode, even when the 4X4 is in use. I have an 07 Quad Cab TRX4......anyone notice a weird suttle vibration in the motor when the MDS is working?

For once I lucked out, I am thankful to report no vibrations in my '07 4X4 in 2WD or 4X4. I was on the freeway today in the middle of a downpour at about 70MPH in 4X4 smooth as can be. (I hope i didnt just jinx myself by writing this post!!)
