They said it was normal. The tech took it for a ride then came back and picked me up and let me drive it. Just to make sure that what he heard was what I was talking about. He said that it was fine and it was the TC locking up. Just doesn't sound right to me. I have a friend from high school that is a service manager at another dealership. I'm going to try to swing by there near the end of the week.

As for me, I can tell for sure because my Magnaflow cat back exhaust upgrade is the dominant noise I hear (when my radio is not blaring). So I am having a hard time determining if I have this issue.
No grinding noise for me
Only 16K on my new girl..

Hmm... I have this noise, starts around 1400-1500 RPM at very light throttle. If I downshift, it goes away; if I let off the throttle, it goes away. With the issue I have with the 4wd shifting on its own, I thought it was the front diff or transfer case, but it doesn't necessarily correspond to the 4wd flaking out. So now I wonder... I don't notice any difference in how the truck drives while it's making the noise, but I should probably have this checked out once the 4wd issue is fixed.

I had my TC bolts come loose and caused a serious rattling grinding noise when I pressed on the gas pedal (of course) at lower rpm. Drove it right to the dealer and they new right away what the problem was after I described what was going on lol. This happened under 20,000km. Been good ever since.
