Hey guys so I have a rattling noise when I’m in drive at a stop. It only is when I’m in drive and then accelerating past 2k and sorta when I turn. It’s a loud noise but doesn’t do it all the time. I’ve checked all my skids and they are torqued down so I’m sorta lost

I had a similar noise. Was a hose clamp from an exhaust heat shield vibrating on the skid. Granted, would be 1:1M chance they are the same.

Only in drive through?

For me it was starting up and shutting down, and a few random vibes. Rotated the hose clamp and it went away. I would ask, what have you done to your rig lately, and they see if anything is related. Then see if anything is touching your skids that would vibrate. Without hearing it, hard to tell if it's drive train related or not.

So nothing really. My skids have been on for a while. I re torqued them all so I know it’s not them but maybe something hitting them? Sway bar is tight too

That's a tough one since it happens in drive. Hard to climb under and listen.

Check u-joints, carrier bearing, pinion backlash, etc (drive line).

Doesn’t do it in reverse. And would likely make a noise when at idle in park though right?

I had a rattle similar to yours. It was rocks between skid plate and exhaust. I have RCI skids.
