Default Weird buffeting/vibration

Hey all,
I'm back with another problem! Fixed my 4x4 but the other day my truck started this weird buffeting/vibration kinda starts in your butt and works it's way into the steering wheel. It only happens at 45 mph and I've only had the problem on one road and that's it, I half think it's the road but I wasn't sure. I took it to Firestone because I bought lifetime alignments from them and they checked it out and did a full vehicle inspection and they only found two problems. 1 they said my transfer case has a small internal leak (something they couldn't fix) and 2 my rear brakes pads and rotors needed to be replaced. Do you guys have any ideas?

Also I'm looking to get new tires for my truck and was wondering if anyone has heard or has any experience with Falken Tires?

If you haven't recently, I would rebalance, or at least have your tires checked. Out of balance tires will definetly cause vibration issues, especially in the steering wheel.
