It is possible your O/drive plates inside your transmission are getting worn/burnt. The speed you are discribing is the same speed that the torque convertor "locks up" that puts extra load on the gear that is applied & if it is weak it will slip/viabrate.
I'm not sure it will work but you could go to your local parts store & pick up a can of trasmission seal conditioner & follow the instructions on the can. some times this helps, also make sure you fluid is quite fresh, you might want to have youtransmission fluid "flushed" as this will replace nearly all the fluid in the transmission, this quite often helps any transmission isues with dodges, they are quite particular about the fluid being in good shape. I was a transmission tech for dodge for 4 years & saw a lot of these issues. unfortunatly if it has gone for a while you may need to overhaul your trans.
I also noticed the picture didn't go through for the EGR valve so I am resending it on this comment.
Good luck I hope this helps.
Please keep me posted.

Vibrations while driving like you are describing can come from tires that have defects (internally broken belts) (wheel weights that have fallen off) or a bent rim (perhaps from another driver [not you :-) ] hitting a curb) Are the tires worn? Have they been balanced and rotated regularly? You report no vibration in the steering wheel.
Vibrations during braking can be warped rotors or discs (but this doesn't sound like your problem since these kind are usually felt in the steering wheel during braking).
If and only if you feel like you can do this safely,
you can try getting the car up to 55, placing the car in neutral, then switching the "engine off" but leave the "key on" (be warned the power steering will go out but the vehicle can still be steered though the steering wheel will be much stiffer) if you try this (do it perhaps in a vacant parking lot or on an empty road) and the vibration goes away with the engine off but while the vehicle is still moving, then the vibration is engine or transmission related. If this is the case you might hope for maybe a bad engine mount. Bad engine mounts can be diagnosed with the vehicle stopped as well. However, if the vibration remains with the van moving forward but with the engine off, the vibration is likely a problem with the tires or suspension. Try to provide some more info.
If you don't feel comfortable trying the above suggestion, please take the vehicle in to an ASE certified suspension and steering professional for further diagnosis.
Finally, I had a similar situation happen to me today. I was riding with a friend in their van and the vehicle started vibrating more and more around 55 mph. We stopped and carefully checked the front tires (including the lug nuts for tightness) but
found a tire defect. (it had several broken steel belts that caused a bulge in the tire and thus the vibration) We changed the tire and the vibration was gone. Good luck to you.
