Dodge diesel, While pulling upon accellerating, truck gets jumpy

1997 dodge 2500 with the cummings diesel, For quite a while now even when not pulling it seems that stepping on the accelerator the truck starts to jump continuously and continuously shaking which will stop only by letting off of the accelerator . This certainly is not normal. It seems like a job in itself to maintain acceleration without having the truck jumping around while bouncing and shaking. One can just sence during the shake that it is not the greatest for the wellbeing of the powertrain. Truck engine all in all seems to run good and the auto. transmission shifts good and seem OK overall as well. PLEASE HELP!!

I have a 1998.5 dodge 5.9 cummings diesel 24 valve factory stock, the fuel lift pump is not on engine or fuel lines, did dodge mount it in fuel tank?


It was located on the drivers side of engine close to fuel filter housing, but dodge has been selling and installing kits that change it to the in tank style for quite some time, so if not on block it must have been converted at some time.
