That's the air pressure banging the heck out of itself. Crack another window and that should go a way.

What im talking about is a slight vibration in the steering wheel and gas pedal, dont know if this is what your feeling, but you'll get used to it...

That is it exactly. SO this is something that has no fix? Guess I have to throw some subs in to cancel out that vibration. Found a great thread on here about installing a double din head unit in the 2013.
Thanks for the replies all........

When I first had this issue I did a lot of searching on here, and I seem to remember people talking about the engine mounts needing to break in. Mine got better, but still noticeable. Also I do not have electric power steering (2012) and it does/did the exact same thing you are describing. Use cruise control

Have the 2012 SXT 4.7l Quad Cab 4X4 and for over a year of driving it I have no vibrations. 13000 on the od and nothing.

Update to this saga. After having a mechanic friend have a look at my truck we both agreed that it was the 4 ply tires that were transferring road vibrations. So armed with this i went back to my dealer and after a couple of weeks, a complimentary undercoating and trying on a set of 10 ply tires, voila!!! the vibration is gone. Today I had the tires swapped out for a mere $300, not too bad for a set of 10 ply tires. I thanked them for making this right with me and left to my truck. I take one look and the stickers are still on the wheels and tires, chalk all over the tires, white lettering not cleaned up and tires still jacked to 60 lbs. Needless to say, just jumped in and came home to scrub my tires. all in all my truck looks like a truck now with some meat on the tires. Next step, installing stereo, all components should arrive next week, even the new dash kit. Good thing I had the 3.0 radio.

What kind of stereo are you thinking of putting in place of the 3.0?
