Default Star Case Report

My truck now has 7K miles on it and definitely is making driveline noises that I didn't hear when it was new. Really pronounced in ECO. I want to get it to the dealer before the weather gets really bad. I want to go with a copy of the star report in hand but can't find a printable copy on the forum even using Search. Can someone provide a link to a printable copy? Since so many people are having TC problems maybe the report should be a Sticky.
