Ok if the wheels are tire have been balanced and the wheels are not bent or the tires do not have high road force then we may have a vibration in the propshaft. This will cause a vibration throughout the vehicle at higher speeds. This propshaft is the component that goes from the transfer case to the rear differential.

mine is notXXXXXso it hasnt got prop shaft could it be mass fly wheel or drive shafts

Ok then yes it could be one of the front drive axles causing this or even a suspension bushing. I see issues with the lower control arm bushings cracking causing this. Look closely at the arm to see if you see excessive movement.
