    The flexplate (flywheel) could be cracked. It is not uncommon for them to crack. Not easy to see a crack with it on the truck, unfortunately.....

    When you checked the bolts to be sure they were tight, did you see any marks from the flexplate grinding on anything? Was the flywheel cover chewed up at all? How did the teeth look on it? Does it grind when you start the engine? It could also be a starter problem. Not likely, but possible. Did you check the starter bolts to be sure they are tight as well?
