F250 violent,dangerous shaking

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4dr SuperCab Lariat 4WD LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)

I was traveling on the I 280 south freeway with my daughter to a soccer tournament in my 2005 F250 4x4 super duty truck. We were in cruise control going approx 55 mph. We drove over what I believe was a large expansion joint on the freeway. Immediately after we traveled over joint, the vehicle start to violently shake and vibrate. After a tense moment of complete terror as the vehicle became extremely difficult to control and continued to shake violently we came to a unsafe stop on the freeway. After the complete stop, I immediately had to speed up again to prevent being rear-ended in the middle of the freeway. This vehicle is extremely dangerous and needs to be removed from the road.

Had several F150s but needed something to pull my 30ft RV in the Colorado mountains. Scored a 2005 SD, SC, Lariat, FX4 LB w/33K. This is an awesome truck. 6.0L powerstroke is incredible. The truck commands the road and most nearby traffic. It's loaded with just about every option and very comfortable. Leather is top quality, roomy, eye appealing inside and out. Handles well for being as big as it is. Have only had it a short time and already getting compliments. Liked the 2005 model changes to the grill best so went with that year. Suits me just fine. If it's like my other Fords, I'll get years of reliable service.

I got my New tuck on my Wedding night! In front of all my friends and family. It was the best wedding gift ever. I loved too see that Ford came out with a Yellow Truck! Thanks for I love my F-250 4X4 4 door Super Duty Yellow Truck. My new hubby has a F-350 2003 and he does not like his anymore, since I got mine! Got to love a girl and her truck.
