    Sorry, I don't know what to tell you. Mine does the same thing after wheeling and I can't locate where it is coming from. Mine went away after a while, the the next time I drove in the mountains the noise came back for a while and went away again.

    A few times a have had things stuck in the brakes and it was making a bad squeeking noise. After backing up it went away.

    Check ball joints. If any look dodgy at all, then replace. If a ball joint fails while you're driving a lifted truck, chances are it'll go ass over tea kettle.

    Also...OP you have a pickup not a Tacoma. Just a clarification. Still an awesome truck though, it's just a little different than the 1st gens.
