I have a 2003 S10 RWD 2.2 5spd. Has about 49K miles on it. Recently had to have new front brakes, new front shocks, and re-packed front wheel bearings. I don't do a lot of highway driving these days, but I've noticed lately that when I do go on the highway, it starts to vibrate and shake quite noticeably as soon as I go over 55 MPH, and by the time I'm at 60 or 65, the whole vehicle is shaking and vibrating very severely, and when I look in my side view mirror I can even see the bed shaking.
So, what gives? I took it into the shop this morning and they couldn't find anything wrong with it everything "looked straight and tight" they said but they suggested I rotate and balance the tires just in case that was the issue, so I had them do that... but it still vibrates and shakes like crazy when I go over 55.

You could very well have a tire with a broken belt in it. I'd go back to where I bought them and have them check it out. You also didn't say who did the wheel bearings and shocks. An incompetent mechanic can cause a multitude of problems.
