    ill check in morning just sounds like a parking brake cable is rattling against frame, but thats tied up so i know thats not the issue.
  9. If that's the sound, then its definitely without a doubt your exhaust somewhere.

    Had the same problem. I changed everything out I thought it was untill I found the problem and it was the cat. To make sure tho get under ur truck and bang on ur cat wit ur fist to see if it makes a rattle well that's what I did.
