How did you find it? Did it sound like it was coming from in the truck?

Any idea what to use to record it?

I just kind of went around the general area that I thought it was coming from and used the palm of my hand to lightly bang on each part/panel until it revealed itself. It was obvious when I got to the hood.

I have what sounds like this exact same thing. Sprayed WD40 on the outside of the passenger door hinges and that seemed to stop it for a while but it's back again and I'm running out of WD40. I'll be interested to hear the solution if there is one. I'm going to check the bonnet prop now.

I just checked the prop and it seems fine but I lubed it up anyway. The hinge is lubed up and the noise is still there. It's painful at this point.

Check the hood.

Does speed or bumps have any impact on it?

I've had the hinges on the bulkhead squeak when the hood wasted latching properly, drove me crazy for a while.

Did it sound like it was in the truck. That is the weird thug. Sounds like it is inside somewhere

It was just squeeky and extra annoying. Is your battery tied down properly?

It's probably your rear crossmember about to fall off, or knowing your truck, two pieces of rust rubbing together.

Not that either. Think inside the truck or comi g through the dash.

Just drove around and it was described as a high pitch chirping. Could it be my driveshaft?

It wasn't the hood but it for sure sounds like it is inside the truck. I guess the driveshafts could sound like they are in the truck. It doesn't happen at slow speed. I have to be in at least 2nd or faster. If I remove them one at a time then what?

Get yourself a stethoscope pull the disk bit off the end and it creates a super directional noise locator.

For the front nothing. Just pull it, then drive and see if the noise goes away. After putting it back in, remove the rear and lock the center diff and drive and see if the noise goes away.
