Default Mystery bump!

First truck in 16years so I'm not entirely confident there's an issue or I'm just overly sensitive.
When I come to a complete stop I feel a 'bump' somewhere in the driveline about a full second after stopping. Best described as something heavy rolling around the box. Before you ask, there is nothing the box!
It does the same thing when reversing. Once I come to a complete stop and a full second later 'bump'.
What is that?
While on the topic I also feel an intermittent vibration/grinding in the gas peddle when driving.

Do you have the 32gal gas tank? If so, that may be your issue. A quick search on 32gal gas tank will show you the multitude of information available. If not, then I have no idea. I have the 32gal gas tank and mine does that usually when I have between 1/3-3/4 tank of gas.

Hope that helps.

^^^ What he said. Also the pedal vibration is a very common issue, mine does it as well.

there was a thread titled "oldmike", either yesturday or the day before, and it was discussing the thump associated with the 32 gal. tank. That's where I learned that it's the fuel moving around. Thought it was kind of funny. It's not really an issue, and I only notice once in a while, but it was nice to learn that it wasn't something to worry about. I don't have the vibration problem with the gas peddle, but have heard guys mention that when discussing the torque converter.
