here's the deal. I went through the sluice multiple times on july 7th and I pin-striped the rear d-line which gave me a vibe at 70mph not any other speed.

Weeks later my crawler stripped out and it smoothed the grooved shaft of the rear case and smoothed the grooves in the crawler adapter.
After the Marlin round up Marlin came to my houe and rebuilt the adapter, front case and swapped me rear cases with one of many he had just gotten from a junk yard.

Following that the crawler wasn't in for a few weeks in which I drove with a stock case and the stock rear d-line (no cv). I had gotten some vibes from that at upper speeds (nothing big) but assumed it was because I usually run a CV in the rear.

Well the (all) night before the clean up I threw the crawler in and that morning took off with a wicked vibration at all speeds. I'm talking shaking the truck.(still went)
The only thing that has changed since before is that I made a flat bed. I tried clamping the buggies (in case of pinion angle change) to no avail.
I also think my rear axle bearing has gone out (I can hear it)and it;s been out going out the whole time, would that have gotten to the point to give me this bad of a vibe?

Try unbolting your d-shaft and rotating it 90 degrees and bolting it back up. I had a similar problem with my rear shaft (CV) that I know is in balance. When I installed it after a new clutch, I had rotated the shaft and it wasn't bolted in exactly as it was the previous time. Not, it SHOULDN'T make a difference, but it did for me. It's a 5-minute check, so might be worth it.

Also check the output flange on the tcase for looseness...
