Unhappy Tapping in gas and break pedal?

Hello, I've recently bought a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport and she is AWESOME!! The day after I purchased it I noticed a slight tapping that I can feel in the gas and break pedal but I can't hear it. I can make the tapping happen more by turning the steering wheel back and forth quickly while driving or sometimes happens more often in bumpy road areas. I called the dealer and they said it was nothing to worry about and blew it off... oh and also it doesn't happen when it's cooler out (like 70 degrees or lower.)

And suggestions of what it is??

Please and thank you in advance

Steering.. There's a write up here somewhere about it. Mine does it too. They say to fill the rubber boot that covers the steering joint with grease. I may try it. It bugged me at first but now that I know what it is, it doesn't bother me.

It gets worse with bigger tires. I had to get used to it...let's just call it another one of those "jeep things"

Could it be the brakes from the stability control kicking in?
