Default Front End Ticking on Deceleration

I have a constants ticking noise when decelerating. The ticking gets slower and slower and wobbly sounding as the truck gets slower regardless if I brake or just let it coast. I took it to the dealership and they said they didn't find anything "as usual" with any problem. It seems to be coming front the front end of the truck. Any ideas?

Wiggle the center caps on your wheels. See if they have any play in them. Other than that, I would swap my front wheels for my back wheels and see if the ticking moved to the back. There may be a loose wheel weight flopping around, or there may even be something inside the tire bouncing around.
The dealer guys are looking for big stuff like bearings, or tie rod ends. They won't notice something like a loose center cap.

This reminds me of a trick we used to play on friends when I was a teenager. We used to put a zip tie around the drive shaft of a car, or the axel of a front wheel drive car and trim it to where it was just barely tapping something each time it came around. It's a fun way to drive a buddy crazy looking for a problem only to find he's been pranked.
