    Pulled out of my parking spot this morning and heard a strange sound coming from the rear of the truck. Sounded like ice rolling around inside the tire or a branch of some sort hitting the fender wall every tire rotation. Stopped the truck got out and inspected and found nothing. pulled forward a bit, sound is still present. Stopped got out again climbed under the truck and nothing, a bit of ice on the tire but nothing that would rub the break line or break off to hit the fender walls. Get back in and continue driving, sound is still present so i stop again about a half mile down the road.

    I once again climb under the rear right since that seems to be where the sound is coming from, nothing obstructing the rotation of the tire. I had just taken my rear mudflaps off yesterday and one of those darn plastic clips broke off so i was thinking maybe thats rattling around, removed that. Drive a bit around the parking lot and the sound is still present. As i drive around in the parking lot the sound goes away. I continue towards work, and think maybe it could be a loose lug nut. Stop again and try and tighten all my lugs and they are all tight. Sound never happened again while on the 10 mile drive to work this morning.

    Its very cold and snowy in Denver right now. Could it be some ice inside the tire rolling around?

    Ice inside the center cap on my stock rims?

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks guys!!!

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    One of the brake pads or the emergency brake cable may have frozen on with a little ice build-up, perhaps.

    Ive had some funky sounds come from my truck on super cold mornings for sure. Today wasn't a super cold morning though, probably only about 20 degrees overnight.

    Thanks for the suggestion!!!!
