Used to be on older (05-07) SD that the slip yoke on the driveshaft needed to be greased with moly paste to correct an issue that sounds similar. Hard to say as I can't sit in your truck and feel/hear it.

I took it back to the dealership today. It has been there off and on for a total of 4 days. They are suppose to tear into the trans to check out the first and second gear clutch pack.This was suggested by the big angry hillbilly on here and am thinking he is spot on I will keep everyone posted

I'm having a similar issue. I come to a complete stop, them when I take off, it feels like the something in the tranny doesn't immediately engage. It's almost like it slips and then you feel it grab. Getting ready to take mine in as well.

Well after the dealer having my truck 2 more days doing checks that Ford wanted done, Ford is sending an engineer to drive and look at the truck they swear it is not in the trans. but what the heck else could it be? I will keep everyone posted.I am kinda disgusted.

If you guys look over on Ford Truck Enthusiasts you'll see this exact issue (sounds exactly the same) discussed to death over the last 5 years. The drive line slip yoke comes with a plastic coating on the teeth. This wears away and the fix is to pack it with grease every so often. I'd try that before I let anyone tear into a transmission. Simple fix to a simple problem.
