Slight Hesitation

Hey guys been lurking for awhile and finally have a problem that needs some diagnosis. I have a 2010 6.4. Within the last week or so I've had a slight hesitation or jerking from the front end. It happens right when I'm almost coming to a complete stop and after I barely start going from a dead stop. I am not sure what the deal is. Thanks for all your help. The truck is bare bones stock with 111,000 miles.

Sorry, I should've been a bit more descriptive. The jerk is front to back. It feels like it could be the tranny or possibly the motor. No RPM change and no lights. but since i notice it, its all I think about when i stop and take off. Its annoying to say the least. I really hope its not the tranny going. lol

Id do a thorough look over the suspension. Balljoints, track bar, trailing arms, driveshaft, u joints, up and down play in pinion gear, see if axle u-bolts slid/broke dowel, shocks, leaf shackles, etc..... could be the slip yoke, or a dozen other things :p

I'd add check tranny fluid to see if it smells burnt or is black or you may have low fluid
