Default Cab Twisting Noise

I bought my 2010 in November of last year and have just shy of 15k miles on it now. It is the Laramie edition. Recently I started having issues with sounds from the covering in the rear of the cab by the doors and where the seatbelts connect. It happenes when I go down anything with the front wheels and then have just one of the back wheels come down before the other. I get the impression the chassis is twisting causing these tension plastic popping sounds. This sound at all firmiliar to anyone? Or any reccomendations to fix the issue? It happens everyday I drive off the slopped curb leaving my construction site... I dont off road so just seems weird that I am having these noises.

I have noticed on nights when it is extremely cold, mine will make a popping noise backing out of the driveway. Almost like the frame is flexing. But once the truck warms up it goes away.

Yeah I plan on having the dealer take a look when I am getting my oil changed next week. I can re-create the sound whenever I want because without fail it happens every time. It is a crew cab and it sounds similar to your C pillar issue LBZ.
Its like a popping stretching noise that yeah sounds like the frame is twisting. It's really annoying and shouldn't be happening since these are able to go off roading. A small 3 inch curb shouldn't cause the truck to twist and have sound issues.
I can pinpoint exactly where it is coming from just not what to do to correct it. Good to know others have had similar issue so thanks for all of your input.. Guess we will see what the dealer says.

And Chit, warm/cold doesn't seem to matter for me.. Happens everytime without fail whether it's 80 or 20.

The cab is not mounted direct to the frame, it is on isolators.

My '09 did the same thing tonight, 3 wheels were on the road, one was on a high spot, not the curb, but, high. Sounded like the whole cab was groaning & popping, first the right side & then the left, it sounded strange, but, nothing else happened
