I try to look at the glass as half full. Are all service writers honest, no. But how far should my suspicions and paranoia go? I could be worried that they might be sabotaging something else and feel the need to keep the truck under 24/7 surveillance.

I was pretty sure it was drivetrain in the front drivers side area, and was leaning towards sway bar link. So if they were to explain that my differential was bad, it wouldn't fly.

I had pretty good faith in the shop going in, shop had great yelp reviews. Place was kept up, mostly trucks were coming in, and didn't have a stack of vehicles that looked like a junkyard.

Lone Star automotive in Midland, TX was the shop I used. Home is 500 miles away, and I don't really have a shop I use there (do things myself).

I'm still not sure how the driveshaft relates. I'm guessing you were just passing along some information? But yes, I have been pretty happy with the truck overall. It's been better to me than I to it.

Did this problem get tracked down yet?

Could be drive line. BUT, You said it also happens on bumps?

My 2011 at 9?,000 miles started to have a rattle, knock metal sound when going over bumps and starting/stopping. It was my Front u-joints at the tires. Pain in the arse to change. about $800 for a local friend of mine to do it. you can easily check this by crawling under and inspecting the U-joints on the 4x4 driveshafts on the tire side. If they are loose and easily move around by hand or long flat head. That is your problem.

Yes, see second post. Loose shock bolt.

Thinking about it now, I'm probably wrong but I consider steering/suspension stuff as drivetrain.

In my defense, when I used to work at oreilly auto parts (10 years ago) you would find suspension stuff under that category.

I'm surprised your front ujoints went out, I didn't think they saw rotation when the hubs were not locked.

the truck lived on a gravel and off roads for the first 50k of its life in 4x4 50% of the time.

Heck i keep it about the same ratio during spring an fall.
