Seems to be worse when pulling a loaded trailer but still does it when the truck is empty. The u joints seem to be tight. It kind of feels like the rear end is twisting a little so the rear wheels are out of line during the acceleration from stop.

Trans was in neutral when you checked the ujoint? Load on the driveshaft will mask bad driveline components.

Protip: Don't get run over.
