Truck "rolls" a little bit when I put it in gear.

I just started noticing this a while back but when I put the truck in gear or shift from drive to reverse on a hill the truck rolls a little. So I checked the drive shaft and no slop in it anywhere. I just can't seem to put a hand on what it is, I'm trying to get he upper hand on a problem before it leaves me stranded with a bigger repair. The trucks a 99 F-250 extended cab 4x4 mostly stock no suspension lift or mods, auto tranny with 174,700 miles. I've looked at several threads on here and haven't found a similar problem. I'm sure someone has the same issue just worded the problem differently.

Sounds pretty normal to me.

My truck does the same thing. I bought my truck a year ago and of course I didn't notice it until I took it home. I tried to find out where the slop is coming from but everything feels nice and tight under there. It hasn't gotten any worse and I have just gotten so used to it I never really notice it anymore. Keep us posted if you end up finding the source.

My truck does the same thing and mine was rebuilt about 40k miles ago. I just hold the brake with my foot longer until i feel the transmission engage and it doesnt roll as much.
