    2020 2WD Sport is 27 months old with 75k miles and it has been great. No lift, mods or deer catcher bumpers. Outside of oil and filter changes, here are the items that I have replaced:

    - Front brakes, rotors, and front frame/radiator support bushings replaced today with OEM parts
    - Battery replaced a couple of weeks ago with 27F battery
    - Installed 4600 Billstein’s and Bridgestones when the vehicle was a month old.

    No rear end noise, no leaks and no rattles. Looking for more trouble free miles.

    Retired. Drive a lot between our places in the Texas hill country and Destin.

    Congrats on driving your truck, 75k on a 2020 is impressive.

    But why in the world would you need to replace radiator support bushings? I have vehicles 20-30 years old without ever needing a replacement.

    Heck the only time I can recall ever replacing radiator support bushings is when I restored a vehicle, not that they needed replacing just did it as part of a complete restoration.

    Did your model and trim come with the 4 or 6 cylinder?

    3K / month is super impressive. I was going to guess that you were in sales, you must be driving a lot between FL and TX.
    Drive safe, enjoy the truck!

    Front frame bushings go out on these vehicles (search the 3rd gen forum) and they generate a metal to metal clank noise. I can only guess that our rough dirt ranch road driving beats on these bushings 2018 Sport I previously owned experienced the same issue at 95K miles.
