Thumping noise...
Anyone have/had a thumping noise? It is definitely based on speed. with the thumping getting quicker the faster the truck goes. it is a 1500 big horn with about 10K miles...bearings? axle?tires?

Well bud, any specifics as to what area you might suspect or pinpointed the noise coming from? With 10thousand, if you've run a lot of sand beaches in Florida, wheel bearings could be a suspect. If you tow a pretty heavy boat, what kind of maintenance have you done to the diff?

Heck I would take it in and have the Dealer replicate the problem and have them fix under warranty.

No running on the sand, pretty much highway and daily triver, no towing, Yes, I figured on a dealer vist, but wanted to lead them in a right direction. Most dealerships these days seem to only want to diagnosis something that they have a TSB for.
