Default Transmission jerking?

Ok so I noticed my truck has a slight jerking problem when I let off the brake from a stop before pushing the gas pedal. I found a thread about the same issue not to long ago but can't seem to find it again. When I lift off the brake about 50% it jerks forward (sputters), it does not feel like a brake issue because when I lift off the brake all the way before pushing the gas you can still feel a slight jerking forward sensation like its a transmission or converter issue. Is anybody else experiencing this issue?

at 30k miles i blew my transmission. THANK GOD FOR WARRANTY! i guess there was a TSB or something for our transmission oil cooler lines i guess they get clogged or something which while doing donut after donut and driving my truck like i stole it ended up starving my transmission with oil thus blowing it to smithereens. how do your oil levels even look?

Not sure if this will help or not, but some torque pulsation from the converter is normal. You usually don't notice it, but apparently these pulsations (an inherent characteristic of a torque converter) are present to some extent in every vehicle. Usually there is a particular maneuver (such as backing up a slight grade in Reverse) that makes the pulsations more noticeable. If you're getting a continuous, rhythmic fluctuation in torque (at closed throttle) then I would think it's probably the converter. This won't hurt anything, and I doubt replacing the converter would fix it.

Well I still haven't taken it to the dealer yet, just haven't had time but reading about other people having similar issues with the torque converter "shuttering" before coming to a complete stop and also when let off the brake from a stop before accelerating. I don't notice or hear anything abnormal at higher speeds or shifting, but like I said it doesn't feel normal doing what it's doing
