I noticed a rattling noise on my way back from an ice fishing trip a few weekends ago. There were four guys in the truck and none of us could figure out what it was. Finally got home, and noticed that cup holder (which folds down from the dash) wasn't pushed down all the way into a locking position. Hard to say this is part of your situation, but could help others...

There are youtube videos that show how to remove the bezel, usually under a radio replacement

a lot depends on whether you have the full floor console or not

I had this very same rattle...until i got angry and said "why in the hell doesn't this friggin thing lock into an open position". i grabbed the cup holder to "gently adjust" it into an open position...and VOILA!!! it locked into place..no more rattle...and to think...i almost "adjusted " it right out of the rear window! it just needed a little "gentle" persuasion !!

if I apply the brakes while hitting small potholes or road imperfects the ABS kicks in and the truck will not stop

truck just turned 15k and is 100% stock - 2011 1500 QC 4x4 4.7l - not to happy to say the least. Also, it appears to have a rod knock now. The truck has never been abused, never towed (doesn't have hitch) - I drive it 7 miles to work and back and a few weekend trips, that's it.
Just thought I should update this as my problems were fixed by installing Bilstein 5100's in the front, did the 2.1 lift as well. Actually, they fixed a few things.

Hilarious !!! My truck did the same thing, was really pissed off, then felt silly after locking the cup holder.

Here's my rattle: http://youtu.be/PIccsiQzLR0

Any thoughts? Same one as yours?

It goes away if I put any pressure on the top of the dash, near the center speaker.

I have the cup holder rattle but also had a rattle sound from above/around the passenger airbag area. I used a rubber bushing for an aftermarket shock, and shoved it between the passenger vent and top dash cover. I had to remove the top and bottom glove boxes to access that area...

P.S- Sometimes it's hard to diagnose a rattle/rub noise when driving, even if you have someone else drive. I have found that hooking a JetSki/Waverunner/SeaJunk to the truck, and running it will shake the truck just enough to search out some noises. I assume a boat or anything else running on a trailer may have the same outcome...

Glad I'm not alone!

If you figure it out - please let me know. I'll do the same.
