could be a heat shield, or even a bad cat. I had a rattling sound like you are talking about and it sounded like crap. One day my truck ran like crap and I knew it was the cat. A little piece of the inside of the cat broke off and was rattling. Eventually it got small enough to get lodged in the tailpipe and clogged it. The truck barely ran enough to get it to the muffler shop. It only cost me about $150 to have a flowmaster cat installed. I would bring it to a muffler shop and ask them what they think the sound is, they have heard them all.
