    Hey guys I just cant figure out what is causing a ticking type of noise coming from the rear end somewhere ONLY when the bed is loaded down with 500lbs or more as well as towing a trailer or something. There are no sounds when there is no load that large. It is not on the bump stops either. It starts after about 20mph and if i throw it in neutral it still continues with no change. It seems to me to be associated only with speed and the drivetrain. Engine speed/reving it doesnt change the severity or frequency of the sound.

    Any ideas guys?
