I got a 2006 dodge Dakota 3.7 v6 and it shakes pretty bad it comes and goes here and there but now it’s constant , when my foot is on the gas pedal I can feel the shake and see the box shaking as well .when I start braking the front end shakes really bad where it shakes the dash and steering wheel. The wheels are aligned and got the tires balanced too ,also usually starts above 80km/h going around corners or small bumps. Anyone got any ideas of what this might be ? Please and thank you

There are few places where these vibrations can come from but it sounds like you have multiple issues.
Warped brake rotors cause vibrations under braking every time you touch the brakes
Front and/or rear drive shaft U-joints cause excessive vibration when they wear out and can shake the whole body.
Motor mounts bushings going bad can cause a lot of vibrations but can also be seen whenever you touch the throttle pedal as the engine torquing from idle can cause the body to move a lot as well.
As you are seeing a lot of excess movement, we need to know a few things:
How many miles on the truck?
Was this bought used or new?
Have any records of maintenance if bought used?
