a noise.....

Sometimes when I drive on a rough surface, dirt roads, rocks etc I will hear a rattiling noise. I first thought it might be the jate rings but have ruled that out, nothing seems to be loose and the truck has had some of the steerting componets replaced. Seems like it is coming from the drivers side could it be a cv joint? Doesnt seem like it could be at this point but Ihave yet to determine. I have gone over the truck and tried to make sure every possbible bolt in the area that could be loose is tight. I am out of ideas... Any ideas

Does it happen when turning? Stopping? Under load while accelerating? or when in neutral or down shifting?

Could well be the hood hinges--it took me forever to figure this one out on mine. With the hood close, pull up on the corners of the hood by the windscreen and see if there is any play. A block of wood and a hammer and I "tightend" the metal loops that go around that plastic bit and all noise went bye-bye.

nah I dont think cats, it just occurs when traveling over rough terrain independent of the wheels being turned or not. the CV's have never made noise and dont leak fluid.

Do you have spacers on your springs? I have one on the drivers side and when off road the spring will unseat slightly and reseat makes a ratteling noise.

I have the same symptoms, turns out its the roller fairlead on my Warn winch up front. The rollers on the bottom, top and left side are loose since the cable is hooked to the right side dixon-bate tow jaw. Vibrates pretty loud on gravel, might be your issue.
