Have had the vibration in mine also since day one. Have over 4,000 miles on it now and although I've gotten used to it, it's still there. It's tough to explain exactly what it is, no rhyme nor reason to it.

While I havnt noticed it in my 4.7L it sounds like its normal for the truck. IE if the dealer told you they all do that it would actually be true.

I found out the source of my vibration in the gas pedal and the slight clunking asociated with it when running on washboards/rough roads, today at the dealership.

There are some bushings in the front that go bad prematurely. I am not for sure on which ones, when I get under there next week to fix my rocker panels, I am going to check it out. I will report back. I was not going to have the dealer do it. $984 P&L, and not covered under MaxCare powertrain warranty.

Will be looking forward to hearing if you are able to fix that or not.

I have an 09 with 24K miles and the pedal vibrates so bad sometimes that it actually puts my foot to sleep!

there is no approved fix for the vibration....and the mds concern is to be expected as stated before....tis running on 4cyl.......as also stated before the pedal vibration is harmonics....meaning two vibrations or frequencies are meeting to create a resonance.....and that resonance IMO is what you are feeling in the pedal.....change any of the frequencies in play and the resonance should go away....ever look under some vehicles and find a rubber nub hanging from the crossmember.....well thats just what its there for......it just changes the frequency of a vibration.....its still there but you dont hear or feel it.....

Actually the more I pay attention to the gas pedal in this scenario, whatever "sprung clattering" that's going on is upstream from the gas pedal. What I mean is when I feel or hear it happening, just happended again yesterday heading out to do some ice fishing, it is beyond the pivot point of the gas pedal, I don't know if it would be on the outside of the firewall or not, but I intend to find out, it just plain feels cheap!

Its either the sway bar or steering rack bushings on mine, I just about have it narrowed down.

Well, I sure hope it's not what your suggesting, it seems to be a wide spread issue, there will be alot of warranty cases. I don't honestly think it is what you suggest, I have this annoying habbit of tuning into my vehicle when I drive it too closely at times and the only sound or vibration is coming from the gas pedal only. Is anybody that could come up with a schematic of the gas pedal linkage, you know an exploded view.

I have the vibration, but mine us accompanied by an audible THUD-THUD-THUD when running over bumps. The vibration on mine is probably a seprarte issue.

Well I just discovered something. My pedal vibration has been pretty bad since I bought the truck, but about a week ago I swaped my factory 20's w/Goodyears for Boss 22's w/Nitto Terra Grapplers, and guess what.....?

....NO MORE VIBRATION!

Which I guess means our factory rubber may be the culprit?
