Something out-of-balance somewhere. Start with the tires, check the wheels, then have the driveshaft balance checked. Do any off-roading?

most likely it is the transfer case leaking. known problem on the AWD models. they leak right down on the exhaust and causes the burning smell. have it checked out again.

Take a close look at the tires, look for bulges and lumps. You may have a slipped belt. Where the rubber delaminates from the reinforcment belt embedded in the tire. If this is the case, you must replace the tire. Also look for missing balance weights. Around the rim you should be able to tell if a weight fell off.
Another very serious possibility is a failed shock absorber. A very rough test is to manually push / bounce one corner of truck down a few times then let go and see if it keeps bouncing more than one time, one and half max. Check all 4 corners.
Otherwise, possible bent rim, missing lug nuts, bad wheel bearing.
