70mph vibration, is it finally gone?

For those of you with '19 trucks, are your passenger seats shaking at freeway speeds? Or did Ram fix the issue they did not admit they had?

I had a '15 Mega that was TERRIBLE, and my '17 CCSB has the vibe from time to time. More often than not. Only reason I may upgrade is to ditch the vibe and go back to a Megacab.

My '19 2500 Mega Cab CTD doesn't have any shutter on the highway. Very smooth for a truck this size.

I have no shudder or vibration in my '19 at any speed. I did have it in my '10 but not in my '15 or '18.

I guess I was a lucky since I never had that issue with my 2015. I can report that my 2019 SRW 3500 has been smooth as silk so far as well. I just came off of a 1800 mile road trip and no vibes at all.

I really hope we can get lots of responses on this thread. Those of us with 4th gens really need this info as data. I believe the fact that they added (2) vibration dampeners to the frames of the 5th gens is an acknowledgement of the issue, but did it work? I am really hoping someone with a 2019 dually will pipe in....

I have a 2019 srw 3500 with about 1000 miles on it with no vibration whatsoever. I had a little vibration in a 2017 before this and a lot of vibration in a 2015 dually before that.

My 16 SRW crew 3500 and 18 2500 mega were 100% smooth
My new 19 3500 mega srw shakes like crazy. Passenger seat looks like it’s loose
Kids car seats in the back make all kinds of noise from shaking. 1200km total
And the aisin trans tuning is terrible compared to my 16

my '19 is smooth as butter.. my buddy's '17 just got out of the shop ( mega limited dually ) that he's been fighting that
cyclical noise and vibe. they ended up replacing his rear axle, tq converter, trans mount, shocks, and driveshaft. all of
that got rid of 80% of the issue...

This is the first I have heard of. Ho was out more details?

What speeds?
Road conditions?
Loaded or unloaded?
Stock tires?
Stock suspension?
What do you mean by the Aisin is terrible? Mine is too quick to downshift o downhills without a load but I surely wouldn’t call it terrible.
