Now I dont know WTF to do!

Brought my truck in to get a few things done today. They fixed my squeek due to a bad tension pully. Something that took 3 times at the dealer to correct. They said they fixed my exhaust rattle by replacing the hangers. Been there 4 times to correct that and I don't know if it's fixed for sure cause i'm not going to pick it up until tomorrow. Lastly, I have a thumping noise in the front between 25-35 mph and they say it's my tires. I've heard that before for other issues. I know it's not my tires. I keep them rotated every 6000 miles and they were replaced at 21000 which now the truck has 34000 on it so the tires as you can see have only 13000 on them. No matter what tires are in front, I still have the noise. I can feel the thump in the floor board but I don't feel anything in the steering wheel. They say nothing else is wrong. Right now i'm really angry and have to vent a little (sorry) but what step do I need to take next? I'm not gonna get anywhere with them so what would you guys do? Thanks. (Truck is a 4X4)

No. Not chopped at all. The old ones were chopped real bad cause the previous owner never rotated them with 19000 miles on them and I didn't have a thump like this with those tires.

you said the thumping is between 25-35 mph. does it get faster as your speed increases or just stay the same?

It could be tires... I've seen that problem with a brand new set of tires on my dad's car. Took forever to figure out what the problem was, finally someone suggested replacing the tires and that fixed it.
If the tires only have 13000 miles on them, they may have some kind of warranty against defects??

get under there and push and pull on the front driveshaft... see if it thumps around. it is about the only thing that could be doing it unless its CVs or your rear driveshaft and just feels like it is in the front.
