Did you have an alignment? If not have that done, it will make a world of difference. Check your wheel bearings and outter tie rod ends. To do that you jack up the front of the truck and place on jack stands. Grab the tire at 12 and 6 O'clock and wiggle it. You should get no movement. Tie rods you do the same thing but at 3 and 9 O'Clock. Tighten all lug nuts before doing this.

Does your driveshaft have any dents in it? That can throw it off balance and cause it to vibrate. Check your pinion angle.
