    Default M1008 or 1028 rattle

    When im stopped at the light , i hear a loud rattling . It sounds like it could be the bed bolts? Maybe tank straps? Does anyone else have that?

    I think i had that on a previous m1028 i had , but cant remember how to remedy it.
    I will either find a way, or make one!

    I think it is the fuel fill door. It will rattle against the tether on the cap. And No the fuel tank skid plate has no bushings. Just 5/16" nuts and bolts. Use Nylock nuts. Good Luck. Have a Great Day and Be Safe.

    If all the above suggestions check out. Look at your torque converter to flex plate bolts.

    Mine did that and it was loud.

    It was the fuel fill door.
    Tweaked it a bit and it rattles no more

    Side metal rails that run the length of the top edge of the bed for the canvas cover attachment.
    There use to be some type of RTV or sealant under the rails. Mine dried up and the rails are metal to metal. Rattles like a SOB when idling....
    No plants were harmed making this post however several free electrons were horribly inconvienced ....
