front end vibration

2000 Durango SLT 5.9 AWD. When accelerating only there is a nasty vibration from the front end from 20-60mph, 50 mph being the worst. Let off the throttle and it goes away. I jacked it up yesterday thinking maybe a u-joint in the front driveshaft but I can't find any slop in the front drivetrain. No slop in the CV joints either. I'm stumped. Any help is appreciated. This rig has 113,000 miles on it.

Balls joints, mis-alignment or tires out of balance. Wheel bearings are a possibility as well.

Tires out of balance? Why would it only vibrate under acceleration then?

B/C the wheels are spinning faster...hence acceleration

It was the REAR u-joints transfering the vibes through the t-case to the front end.
