It could be that you have some free play from wear and tear in the universal joints that are located at both ends of your main driveshaft. My 2001 ranger 4x4 does the same thing; it also starts to shake pretty hard if I go more than 65 mph. My U-joints definitely need replacing. I would have the universal joints on the main driveshaft checked or replaced. It could also be an excessively worn pressure plate ( automatic clutch). If it's idling higher than around 600 rpm after the engine is warmed up I would check the idle air control valve or for a vacume leak elsewhere near the intake manifold. I hope this helps : )
Sounds like your H/T leads are tracking or breaking down may need to check ignition system and also check for any vacuum leaks.Could be a few things so have you done any checks or tests that would narrow it down a little?
This happens from overheating the clutch, and it is caused by a burnt/overheated flywheel and pressure plate, it may be your driving habits, do you slip the clutch allot or have you been stuck where you might have overheated the clutch trying to free the truck from mud or snow?
