I've noticed it does this more when the truck is cold (first starts on a cold morning, or when left to cool off). There's a more noticeable vibration.

Anyhow, I've also noticed it seems like this truck might have had a charcoal canister? If so, that's been removed. I have what seems to be some vent lines plugged up that seem to run to the fuel tank? Not entirely sure what the deal is with those.
