    Whenever someone rides with me, after they get out the seat belt is twisted 90 degrees and makes a rattle until I flip it so it lays flat.
    Hope it’s something simple for you!

    I've had the MX4 on my truck for a year. The two main places I have had water get in was at the front of the bed (they give some soft rubber tabs for the edges of the front rail which help tremendously) so look for any little gaps there. Also around the tailgate - this isn't from the cover but from gaps around the tailgate. I used a tailgate seal (helps with dust also) and some of the front rail weatherstripping in the MX4 kit (that you don't need for the 3rd Gen) to seal where the top edges of the tailgate meet the sides of the bed. The high pressure wash wand at the car wash can also squeeze some water in. So it's not fully water or dust proof but what gets in has not been an issue for me.

    Funny you should mention that. I have had the same issue. Today I took my truck in for service and heard a rattling noise afterwards when I was out wheeling at Hollister Hills. Two issues, 1 the dipshit tech put the oil change access panel on backwards….
    IMG_6329.jpg
    The second was I started hearing a rattling noise underneath while I was ascending a black diamond trail and had no room to turn around, let alone stop and check. When I got to a spot where I could get out and check I discovered a bolt was missing where the engine and transmission skid meet. Needless to say my day was done since I didn’t have any extra bolts on board to remedy the issue. When I got back to civilization I was able to pick up up a bolt and washer and fix it. My prior service at Victory Toyota they removed the skid plate to perform the oil change. Apparently these yahoos didn’t use any locktite. Like they say, if you want something done right do it yourself!

    Had the same issue as well as some squeaks in the same area. When I pulled the speaker cover to install DS18 tweeters I found that the mount for the auto-headlight sensor was loose. So I inserted a few thin strips of rubber insulation around it as well as along the edges of the grill, in particular between the speaker grill and the edge of the window trim, all below the surface so isn't visible. No more squeaks or rattles. I don't recall where I got the material, but it's something like this stuff so it's easy to cut up:

    https://www.amazon.com/6x6-Inch-Neoprene-Plumbing-Material-Protection/dp/B018H9CCPG?th=1

    You can find something similar at Home Depot or your local auto parts store.

    You could probably use some 3M trim adhesive tape too.

    Finally attached the Stant locking gas cap. I waited enough time for the cap from O'Reilly without the "S" on it to throw a code, but it has not.

    Now .. committing to Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi ...

    My rattle in that area was the speaker cover.

    Never seize. And an old mechanic trick. When tightening the screws hold the pressure on them for a few seconds. Mine are still good :thumbsup:

    I finally got my Deaver U402 Stage 2 leaf packs installed!!! Zero regrets, it was the right choice for me. I'm at the lower end of the weight rating so I'm super high right now, but once I get my battery reinstalled under the bed and my rooftop tent platform installed, it should level out pretty well. My struts are topped out now so I'm looking to get some new struts in the back then. I will look at getting new struts for the front, likely with a plus one lift to help level it out a bit. But I like the look of the heavy rake! However, I want to fill up that hole with a bit more tire so once I get the plus one inch on the front I'll figure out what my max tire size is and balance everything out. I'm so happy I went with the Dealers instead of an add a leaf pack. I'm glad I have a good mechanic who talked me out of buying something I wouldn't be happy with in the long run.
