Ok I'm thinking its the harmonic
Balancer. Its not obvious. Anyways 98 Dakota R/T 5.9
I used to drive everyday to work
And one day it just started to vibrate i meen
The motor and whole truck
I stop the truck pop the hood and at idle itis fine . Pull on linkage and give it gas vibrates bad no misfire, popping , no loss of power , , no smoke , going down the road I can find sweet spot were its not to bad . But I dont know , I took to a shop and they gave it back said its lost its balance they didn't know why.

Pull the inspection plate at the front of the transmission bell housing and check the torque converter bolts. Rotate the engine with breaker bar and socket to check all four.

Sometimes harmonic balancers do go bad.
