I have the vibes as well on my 2004 XLT F150. I now have about 23,000 miles on it and several trips to the dealer. Each time the shop foreman thinks it is tires until I remind him that it doesn't vibrate when you let off the gas and coast. It only does it around 48-58 under load. Let me know how you come out on yours. I think Ford engineers know what is wrong but aren't saying so they don't have to spend a lot of money on repairs. Maybe we should get an attorney involved and do a class action lawsuit!
Please keep me posted on your outcome. Thanks! Jack

At this point, the jury is still out on this one, as usual. A third party was called in to inspect the vehicle, they were not informed of the vehiles repair attempts, and their findings where that it's most likely tires...LOL.... This is after the orginal tires were rotated and balanced 5 times by an authorized Ford Dealership, a complete set of tires and wheels from a 2005 f150 were put on my vehicle for 2 days testing, and a complete set of new tires was installed by Ford at no cost. The third party has no clue as to the body damper attemps, or the cab dampener attemps either. So, now we wait for Ford to give their opion to the third party inspection, before the ruling is made. Meanwhile, we're checking into what the attorney general's office will need in case Ford viggles out of this one also..... Keep in touch.... by the way, see message # 1461, this guy has pretty much hit the nail on the head.... Vibes of Ford
#1525 of 2180 2005 F-150 King Ranch power problems
Sep 22, 2005 (8:32 am)
I have a real lack of power and accerleration with my truck. I previously owned a 2001 F-150 which was considerably faster and general overall performance was better. I had it in at the ford dealership several times they can't find anything wrong with it other than cleaning the carbon out of the fuel system, they also reprogramed the computer to the current up to date specs. It now seams to be slower than before. 40 more HP than 2001, you would expect it to be faster. I've considered getting a Hyperchip to increase performace will this work?

When I have my AC on and put it in 4WD my AC kicks off and goes to defrost.It does the same in the winter when the heat is on. Also when I just have it in 4WD with nothing else on , it keeps kicking out of 4WD. Plus when I turn the switch on for the 4WD you can hear it click, but does not go into 4WD. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be the problem?

Sounds like you've got a Ford with a vaccuum leak. Vaccuum is used to pull in the shift on the fly front hubs and it's also used to control the position of the ventilation system. When you lose vaccuum the ventilation goes to the default position - defrost, and the 4x4 won't stay engaged.
Start schecking all the vaccuum lines and fittings. Look for cracked or brittle vaccuum hose(s), but also check all the little plastic vaccuum fittings - the connectors and the "T's" The leak could be anywhere, but I'd probably start looking down around the automatic hubs. There's a couple of tricky placed where vaccuum lines go through the firewall that can crack but are hard to see.

Sep 25, 2005 (2:35 pm)
Just returned home from a trip, experiencing problem indicated crossing any road irregulaity with vibration which sounds like a bad bearing in froant end. Checking free wheeling hubs, one was tight to turn, Would that be an indication that it is possibly bad? Will next try hubs individually. Skrypek

Awhile back I had the same problem with loss of power and torgue pulling. The waste gate sensor in the turbo was replaced by the dealer. After which the diesel ran fine. skrypek
