Default Serious "Brake-Shake" with a 2007 Ram

Since I found no forum dedicated to brake issues, I figured I'd try this one.
My 2007 reg cab shortbed SLT Ram 1500 has developed an annoying vibration that only occurs when the brakes are applied at speeds of 60 mph and faster. I had the tires balanced and rotated a few days ago and it made no difference. I replaced the rear brake rotors and pads with OEM Mopar parts, and the shake still persists. The front rotors and pads were replaced with Mopar parts a few months ago and all was fine then.
The tie rods are fine. The ball joints are fine. The upper and lower control arm bushings still look great. The truck has 174,000 miles on it.
My afternoon freeway commute often has unexpected slowdowns from 70+ mph down to a stop and this truck often shakes like I'm travelling down a cobblestone road.
How likely is it that the 3 month old front rotors could be warped? The truck stops fine under 50 mph, but I can feel some slight pulsating.
