Default One more Mystery...

The truck makes a noise tht sounds like a heat shield or pulley rattle while idling in gear. It never makes the sound while moving or while in park....Any thoughts?

Yeah...RPM's drop when in gear at idle (I assume with the brakes on) and so a bit more vibration is caused. I think your spot on about one of the heat shields as the motor and exhaust will move back and forth/shake more at lower RPM's.
