    side tube step bars, and a trd skid plate. Hood protector, and wade in-channel guards. K&N CAI, Dynomax catback exhaust. Weathertech floormats, and door scuff guards. White stubbie antenna.
    I have been reading posts about a whining noise for awhile, and thought that I was plagued with on of the trucks that did it. I have had a couple friends that have told me that theirs didn't make the noise. My Chief(army) has an 07 sport, and he stopped me the other day. Says that it sounds like the Power Steering noise is amplified, and constant. I am about 1500 miles from my warranty running out, and am going to take it to the dealership to see if they can't do anything about. Any thoughts???

    I have the same problem. Not worth writing home about, but there nonetheless. I have checked the power steering fluid, and it's fine. Hmmmmmmmm. I have to think someone else has experienced this. Is there a thread somewhere?:confused:

    Did you ever found out what was making the noise?

    Go! My warranty ran out not long ago and I just replaced the center bearing and a cracked u-joint. Today the tech finds metal shavings in the rear differential.
