without more info I would suggest having your u-joint looked at - if they are good have someone check the rear differential for potential problems - that's where I would start

The shaking only happens when in drive and when I let my foot off the brake. The rpm idel is ok. The u joints are new and the rear are all good

I just read in a dodge forum that the center support bearing is the common cause of this problem

Truck is not lifted, will check the center support bearing. Sometime when I let the brakes off slow the truck shakes but stops as soon as I hit the gas.
