ZF6 weird noise in first and reverse

Hey guys I recently got a 2001 f350 xl 2wd single wheel, it has 160k on it, I don't think it has had a clutch yet, clutch does not slip, but in low gear and reverse and first, it makes this sort of growling noise untill you get going a little faster than idle. I am new to these trucks, I was told it could be the pilot bearing, and if so is this something I should change right away ?, also the clutch disengages and engages just off the floor, I checked the famous bushing that goes bad and it is new lol, anyways your help would be great
Cheers

Just gear rollover, many trucks will also do it in 2nd if you idle in a parking lot.

Nope no worries, its just exerting more load at the low speeds so you hear the gears meshing more. Mine sounds like a P-ed off pitbull while going through parking lots. Once you get better at playing the clutch its pretty easy to control while going through parking lots and stuff so it doesnt sound like you cant drive a stick.

You can reduce a bit according to schlutzer^^^with new syn fluid and archoil additive but i havent done it yet so no experience how much.
