Yeah,I change my oil every 3000 miles. Im OCD about it. And I do keep forgeting about one thing. At about 1000 miles is when I installed my Cherry Bomb. My welder crapped out half way through so I took it to a place down the road and had them finish it. As soon as the kid finished, he jumped in the truck and like 2 secs after starting it, romped on it. I yelled at him but I can't see that doing anything. All I know is, something is wrong and I don't know what it is lol. All of my previous Dodges have all been good to me and the tick I know is normal. The knock can't be, even after 56,000 miles.

I see you have a SuperChips for your truck. Do you have any experience with Hypertech? I have always gotten Superchips for my Mopars, I don't know why I didn't this time. Was just wondering if you thought one was better then the other and which one for this new 4.7L?
