    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    Obviously it could be quite a list of things.

    One I am familiar with is the fit of the front quarter panel against the top of the bumper.

    This happened to me and I proved it by wedging a piece of cardboard between the bumper and front panel. Happened to me on the drivers-side actually.

    Ended up having to tweak the panel (bend it inward) to prevent the sound. I heard it most when traveling down rough dirt roads.. drove me nuts!!

    Best wishes finding the source of yours.

    Uniball UCAs squeak when they get within 20ft of anything remotely dirty. PB Blaster will fix it for a little bit. Cleaning the uniball really well as part of regular maintenance will help.

    Or its the heim joint at the bottom of the coilover. That one also squeaks pretty good when it's dirty. Mine just recently stopped squeaking which makes me think its about to explode out of my wheel well.

    When I had my UCAs completely off the truck I went after them with a pressure washer and shop towels to get the really stuck on stuff. Road gunk and built up PB blaster won't just get cleaned up by any solvent. You're stuck using elbow grease.

    I clean/lube my TC UCA uni's with "Tri-Flow" It's a teflon based lube I actualy get from my bike shop. The stuff is amazing. Also chris4x4 said this is what to use on your uni's. So if you don't and use somthing else you head will explode!:D

    Hell every mod on my truck had it's own noise. People that I drove around thought the wheels were gonna fall off, I could explain every click, whistle, squeak, and thud. The UCAs just blended in with the rest of'em.

    I need to secure my rear wheel wells better. The clips holding that thin plastic is lose. Seriously sounds like a drum roll when I hit wash board.:rolleyes:

    Lube every metal on metal contact you can think of. That's how I found the bottom of the coilover, where it attaches to the lower A arm, was squeaking. Hell one of my squeaks was my All Pro bumper taking the paint off the front quarter panel underneath the headlight.

    I used to hear a high pitch chirp sound when I would press the gas pedal. It was pretty quiet, usually only would here it with my tunes off. If I repeatedly pressed my gas pedal lightly it would do it every time, sounding like a bird chirping.

    I think I told the dealership but they couldn't find any unusual sounds... big surprise. I think it just went away on its own.
