rough idle?

Okay so my truck runs horrible in the mornings unless i let it idle for 5 min. but at idle it is very but runs great once i start moving. what could this be? also sometimes the brake pedal it super stiff and sometimes it's normal.

Re: rough idle?

I cleaned my airfilter and idle is no longer the problem but when i get on it threw any or all gears and then come to a stop light it idles like it may die. As if the fuel pump cant catch up.
