What's this BUZZING when at idle??

2001 7.3L Excursion with 152K miles has been with us about a month now. When the truck's at a stop light I can feel a vibration...more like a buzzing...in the brake pedal.

Put the truck in Neutral and the buzzing is less, but still there. Original motor and tranny and the underside looks fine, but if I can get rid of that noise, then the truck will be perfect.

Anybody have experience with this? How to diagnose it with one person?

I'm going to make sure that the retaining bolts are tight and that there's enough PS fluid in there. Thanks for clearing that up...buzzing is a lot more weird than vibration; especially when the engine doesn't vibrate at all.
