kit installed, and 35" Toyo Open Country MT's. Again, when I have even as little as 150 pounds of stuff in the bed, it's the smoothest riding vehicle I've ever been in. But when empty, I almost don't want to drive my truck.

Any tips on how to end this problem so I actually enjoy using my vehicle?
It is possible that you have changed the u-joint angles a little and it can cause a small bump, you can check by driving for a little bit then get under the truck and put your fingers on the u-joint caps, if the caps are real hot then either the angles are off or the u-joint is bad.

If the problem isn't with the u-joints then try taking off the shocks and see how they are test their recoil and everything like that, shocks don't really last 50,000 miles like they say bilsteins are a different story. It could be other things but this is all i can come up with off the top of my head without really thinking about it.
