I had to nail the brakes hard to keep from hitting an idiot and at the time had 48 bags of seed beans in the bed, after that I started noticing a shudder in the front end when slowing down under 15 MPH to dead stop. It happens only when I slow down and apply the brakes. I removed both front wheels and checked the pads and rotors. Nothing. I gave all of the u-joints a good shake, nothing loose. Any ideas???? please -yea now I'm begging

Any chance you got your brakes hot? If so the rotors may have warped. If this was the case, you would get a pulsation in the pedal at all speeds, but super fast at high speeds, and progressively slower as you stop.

OR if your ABS kicked on and the relay stuck, the abs motor could be pulsing the brakes. Mine is stuck right now, and so it's unplugged. Much less likely, but if so, the ABS pulse motor will be running whenever the key is on.

double check the rear u joints, especially the middle one, might not feel loose. or drive the truck and feel the u-joints, see if one is abnormally hot

UPDATE I rechecked and then double rechecked all ujoints after driving about 30 miles still don't find one that seems abnormally warm or loose. Now for the bad news, The problem seems to be getting worse as the days go on. I might even contact(insert large shudder here) the local stealership and see if they can get it in and see if it is something covered under the warranty:CRY:
