Hi Pugga. My mistake, I should have listed some of those conditions. The rattle / buzz is coming from the driver side, near the door. Its hard to miss with the door open. With that said, the buzz happens in neutral or in 1st or 2nd gear where the RPMs can dip below 1500. Once you get into the higher RPMs its not an issue. There is no load at all (bed empty, no trailer).
I've been able to replicate it sitting still in my driveway or while moving. It isn't happening 100% all the time, but often enough to know that I'm not crazy (I'm able to show it to people).
I did a search on the forum here and tried to see if its the glove box wiring harness rubbing against the metal bracket, but I've taken the glove box off, and for sure the noise is coming from the opposite side.
As far as maintenance, I do regularly scheduled oil changes and what not, so I'm 100% sure its not because I'm running dry.
