jerky at idle/low speeds

Hello, Ive owned my 79 j10 for four years now. I bought it in running condition off a farmer out here in Montana. He claims it was used as a farm/cattle truck, which i believe due to the fact that ive done more drive train work than motor work. Ive replaced engine mounts and rear differential bearing, seal and pinion. This repair got rid of alot of noise! And some of the jerkyness. But I'm still getting a rocking sensation at idle speeds / accel or decel at lower speeds. Also i have not replaced the transmission mount, i haven't found a matching one yet. My j10 is a 360v8 4wheel drive (no quadra chain) Any suggestions? Thank you kindly.
