Have to get your ABS sensors and Airgaps checked... May be as simple as too big an air gap on one of the sensors or as expensive as needing to replace a faulty sensor. I just went through the process of fixing this exact issue with my local mechanic.

I would check the rear brakes, you can get a pulsation from the rear rotors/drums also.

Why brakes pulsate when slowing down?

most probable cause if the braking action is moderate is warped disc rotors
the warped disc pushes the piston in and out and that is the sensation at the pedal
if it is under sever braking , it will be the action of the ABS loosing and making pressure to stop wheel skid
get a proper diagnosis from an accredited brake specialist shop
if the discs are warped but within machinable limits , that may fix it for a while , otherwise get quality discs

When slowing to a stop the truck shakes. It feels like you are going over a "washboard" road. I have just installed new tires, had lined up, balanced, new wheel seals and have check everything...

More than likely it is warped brake rotors. You may feel a pulsation in the brake pedal, or the steering wheel may shake a bit.
I would suspect the fronts would be more noticeable. You may also see rust build up or a rough surface on the rotors.
Front brakes are easy to replace, I would put new pads and rotors on the front first.

Brakes pulsate real hard

That is just the ABS system at work. It is supposed to prevent your wheels from locking which often makes the brake pulsate, especially in wet weather or or snow or ice. The only way to really stop this is to disable to ABS by unplugging it and removing the fuse. This will make the ABS light appear in your dash, but your brakes will stop pulsating.
