This happened to my truck. I was driving down a powerline and didn't see a huge dip and the front part of my truck hit the ground really hard, I had the problem but then after a number of months the problem magically disappeared.

Respectfully recommend you have your tires rotated and balanced. That should solve the problem. Also, some tires are worse than others about developing flat-spots when your truck has been parked overnight, particularly in cooler weather. The flat-spots should smooth out within 4 miles or so.

If you try these remedies and still have the vibration problem, you may want to consider having a tire shop dismount your tires and check internally for breaks in the internal composition of each tire.

Also, you can overinflate your tires one at a time, then take the truck on a quick cruise on a really smooth stretch of road. Take the tires up to about 50 psi, one tire at a time, and ride around a bit. If one of the tires is outta round or its composition is breaking down, you'll be able to identify the problem tire this way.

Good luck.

or maybe just maybe your rim or rim's are bent.
