Quite likely if it has lots of miles it could be the universal joints in the drive shaft being wore out

SOURCE: shaking brakes

Your rotors are warped. You also probably need to brake pads. Take your rotors off and inspect them for cuts and grooves. If the surface is not flat you'll need new ones. If not take them to a machine shop and have them turned. Turning your rotors will cut them down until the surface is perfectly flat and not warped. The shaking is cause when the rotors are warped and you press the brakes and the rotor applies more pressure where it's high and less where it's low, thus causes it to shake

SOURCE: 1999 Dodge Ram 5.9L 4X4 not enough fuel

1999 Ram 1500 Van 5.2 L conversion vanI had same issue. No accelleration. Engine loses power under load, (throttle under 30% goes ok,  then when +30% it wheezes loads down like it is a diesel and starts to misfire) The van top speed dropped to 60 if you were on flat ground, and babied it. #0-45 going up any decent grade. Power slowly kept dropping over time, the engine lost vacuum under load, I had code for plug misfire, and just had no power under load. Lost transmission shifting points (and it started to sound a little funny too)  and heater vent controls would not work correctly when engine was under load.  Changed air filter, which had light oil discoloration on it.  No change  
Checked fuel pressure at 50 psi on rail ok Replace plugs, wires, coil and cap and rotor. No change Noticed dimming of hood courtesy light under load (voltage checked ok). Took off air filter, and reveved engine to where it lost power, I could see slight oil mist (or exhaust - fuel mix?) blowing up out of intake butterfly when the engine was acting poorly under load.  I had no smells from cat convertor. There seemed to be a good flow of exhaust out the pipe. Still I suspected plugged catalitic convertor. I beat on it with a rubber deadblow mallet and a little gray dust came out the exhaust. Took the van to exhaust shop and installed a new cat convertor.(also had to replace rust siezed O2 sensor).  On removal of the convertor, I was able to pour out a good amount of gray sandy debris (ash?) that was plugging the old convertor.  Now my van runs like it should.  Universal convertor installed for $180, sensor from auto parts store $66 I hope this helps you because I played with this for some time trying to figure it out.

SOURCE: can't get rear drums off of 94 dodge ram 1500

Look between the lug studs for a phillipsscrew. You will have to use amn impact scewdriver to get it if.
Also there may be a retaining ring around on of the studs.

Vibrating at 50 mph

It's likely a tire balance issue. One of the wheel weights may have fallen off. You could try swapping the tires front and rear to see if the issue goes away, or take the tires back to where you last bought them and see if they'll rebalance for free.

Also, if you ever drive thru mud, the mud could have dried to the inside of the wheel causing an imbalance.

A few possibilities.... bent rim, broken steel belt in tire, or a wheel weight that keeps the tire/wheel combination in balance has fallen off. Not sure how big the bump was, so other options would be suspension related. I would check the tire and/or wheel first.

Front end problems

You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck
