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.

SOURCE: Whole car shakes when I hit a bump on the road

I had a similar problem and found that there are more than one possible cause. The simplest and least expensive is to have the front wheels balanced on a dynamic machine balancer. Then, reinstall the wheels/tires and give it a test run. If the problem is gone, your have fixed it.. If it persists, chances are that you have other suspension or shock problems. Get the front end aligned and checked for looseness or slack which would allow the tires to be pointed in different directions at the same time in a rapidly alternating manner. These are NOT things you can do without the benefit of a professional with the right tools and knowledge. A test drive with that professional mechanic will be a good place to start. If you want to save your tires and your personal well-being, it is wise to get this problem identified and resolved quickly. You represent a danger to yourself, your vehicle, your family, and to any other driver or pedestrian or obstacle in your path.. Bite the financial bullet and get it fixed, PRONTO!, or park it and walk.

SOURCE: my 1997 expedition, shakes really

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.
Good luck

i would start with checking the axles because most of them have a abs ring on them which will trigger the abs light. also make sure your axles are in good shape. last resort would be that you need new tires because the steel bands inside are starting to seperate. good luck

The EGR valve sticking, loose wires, bad ground connections, dirty connections, fuel pressure dropping out, vacuum leaks, or any combination of several of these at about the same time.
