Problem solved!!!!!

Support bracket bolt for step bars that attaches to truck frame.

Even though the bolt was super tight any body twist caused the metal bolt against the frame to squeak but sounded like a piece of metal rattling. To solve this the dealer put a big piece of 1/8 inch hard plastic between the bolt and the frame. Noise is now gone. These were aftermarket step bars not Dodge OEM. Just before this fix the noise was getting worse with colder air temps. Was tolerable to a point in summer but now it was getting ridiculous.

Anyway glad its gone, hope this helps someone else out there.
