Jerk from dead stop

I have read several posts similar to what I am experiencing, but I believe that I am experiencing something different? Looking for help!

For a good while now I have been experiencing a jerk (not clunk) from a dead stop. After I accelerate, the truck moves without any slip or clunk, but there is a jerk that I can feel just after the truck moves. Not a delay in moving, which baffles me. I thought maybe something in the suspension is shifting, but so far I can't find anything worn.

The funny thing also is that when the truck is stone cold in the morning, the jerk is not present. Ive checked for slop in the drive train (u-joints etc.) Also, I just had my trany rebuilt because of 2-3 slippage. So I'm quite sure its not the trany. Ive had this problem before the rebuild (hoping it would go away).

Anybody have an idea?
