vibrates when someone else rides with me???

This is going to sound strange but my truck vibrates a small amount with someone else is with me and doesnt do it at all when im by myself. I checked both U joints and then pulled the diff cover and checked for correct backlash. the pinion seems to be tight and the rear doesnt make any odd sounds im starting to run out of ideas anyone ever had a situation like this?

If you're serious, it could be worn or missing body mounts, worn suspension bushings, a pinion angle right on the ragged edge of specs, that when loaded puts it over the edge.

What vehicle, mods, etc? Where is the vibe felt? Under power, coasting, in neutral, in gear, etc.
