Do you feel it thru the seat, or the steering wheel?

Center support bearing on the rear driveshaft been checked? I might be tempted to rotate/balance the tires, just for giggles.

So it's likely something in the rear part of the driveline.

When did the vibration start? After the tires? Before?

Take it to a good driveline shop, even a semi-truck place, since its dually and diesel. A lot of times those shops are better and quicker diagnosing issues than regular car shops.

Could be a bent wheel, warped rotor (they're huge), bad tire, out of balance tire, warped driveshaft, etc.
