How many of us suffer from transmission buzz?

How many of you have and '09, '10, or '11 Ranger Sport, with a 4.0L/5Spd/3.55:1 set-up in 2WD and have a buzz through your shifter in 4th gear? I currently know of 2 trucks with this issue and that Ford is trying to find a fix for it. My local dealer has tried replacing the transmission fluid and shifter bushings to no avail.

It's makes the noise on in 4th, putting ones hand on the shifter stops it. In the case of my truck it's intermittent, seems worse when it's hot out. The other truck Taylor Ford is working on apparently does it anytime it's in 4th. They tell me that the noise is "Torsional Vibration", the 4.0L engine vibrates under load through that particular gear ratio that causes the noise. Accordig to Ford it's unique to this particualr gearing. I was curious how common it was.
