Oh, so THAT was the problem all along

I've been going nuts trying to get this damned truck to pass inspection, even went through the trouble for new head gaskets, timing chain, camshaft, plugs, wires.... And it actually got WORSE.

So my mechanic takes a look today after I asked him to price me some new cats for it, and what does he say? "Oh, it looks like these have both been gutted out." Hmmm, cats are nothing but empty metal cans? Yeah, that could do it.

Tomorrow I am going in to see a custom exhaust guy about a full stainless setup with some high-flow convertors and all the good stuff.

It sounds like a rattle underneath the cubby box. Mine was noticeable when going from and coming to a stop.

Mine still have a rattle in them too along with a loud BONK sometimes, so I guess they were only MOSTLY gutted. I have an appointment to take the truck down to a racing shop tomorrow to price a full custom system with some steel-core cats, since the rest of the exhaust pipes aren't looking so hot either.
