Please select from this options

A) Check your tires and suspension components for loose or worn items that will cause your truck to shake when you stop.

B) Examine your engine for a misfire when stopped. This could cause your shaking.
C) Have your brake system serviced. Your rotors are warped and need to be machined.
D) Put a bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the tank to make your truck run better.

Shaking is occurring after you've already stopped?  I'd say that eliminates A and C.
D then, is the inexpensive first thing to try, but is possibly related to B... which would be what I would hope the fuel cleaner has a small chance of fixing.  (Could be a fouled plug, or something else preventing one plug from getting spark.)
