    Default Intermittent Road Vibration - 2014 Tundra

    I get an intermittent vibration in my '14 Tundra. The vibration repeats at specific locations on my daily highway commute (concrete interstate) when at speeds of 60-70 mph and I do not experience it elsewhere, on other concrete or asphalt roads. I am thinking it is caused by the condition of the road itself in these specific locations (rain grooves cut in pavement) and how that section of the road interacts with the truck. The intermittent vibration has become worse after putting on snow tires. The vibration is strong enough that I can hear it in the voice of my passenger if they are speaking when we pass over this section of road. Had the dealer check wheel balance, alignment, suspension, etc to confirm and dealer reported no problems. The dealer did mention this is a characteristic of '13 - '14 Tundra's.

    Has anyone experienced similar issues?

    Any advice on what component change may reduce the vibration? like bigger tires/wheels, softer shocks, or ???

    It is called bed bounce, and can happen on certain roads. It can be reduced by putting some weight in the bed.

    Thanks for your replies. Had a Tacoma for 7 years and never had this issue.

    I have a water bag with about 250 lb of water in the middle of the bed during the winter for traction and still experience the bed bounce. Do you find placement of weight to affect bed bonce - i.e. is it better to place the weight right at the tailgate?

    Sand bags would work better than water, and the best placement is near the tailgate.

    this is a classic edition of what is called bed bounce, there is really nothing wrong with your tundra. you can sort this out by putting some load or something. cheers
