Default Vibration @ highway speeds?

I just recently had a lot of work done on my car. Had a cracked transfer case, broken cv boots, and a ton of other minors. When getting these taken care of I also had my tires rotated. After this I noticed that once I get to about 65-70+ mph, there is a very noticable vibration. I can feel it mostly in the steering wheel but you can also tell as whatever loose objects I may have in the console make noise. It feels almost as if the tires aren't balanced. Anyone have any suggestions as to what it may be?

Take the truck in and have the tires checked for balance and other conditions have the alignment checked. etc and anything in the front end that might be a litte out of wack

I'm hoping it's just a balancing/alignment issue. I just spent a crap load of money getting the above mentioned things taken care of.

check and see if the place you got the tires from offer free rotation and balance. Most places around here do.
