It has been a while and I have an update for my issue. I went to the dealership and rode with a tech and they heard the noise. They determined the noise was coming from inside the headliner above the driver's seat. They told me to find the problem that they would have to take the whole headliner off, about a 3hr job. They said that it may make the noise worse if they took the headliner off.

I haven't made a decision yet but the noise drives me nuts when I go over bumps and the cab is cold. The noise sounds like gentle scratching on a chalk board. Any other ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
