Default Weird Rolling Nut Noise?

No real problems on the ram, just a weird noise. When accelerating or braking, something can be heard rolling forward or backwards, it sounds like in the drivers side of the frame of the truck. May be a nut, maybe an acorn put there by a rat or squirrel, or maybe a bead of weld? Anyone else have anything similar or something that may be able to point me in the right direction? I have looked but cant find anything........ frustrating

that reminds me of something i heard about long ago
i don't know how true it was

A high dollar luxury car had a noise like yours, i didn't happen all the time & it took the customer several trips to the dealership to find it. A factory worker had placed a piece of metal into a strategic place & it had a note attached to it that read i hope this cost you a lot of time & money to find this noise
It is said to have been placed by a factory worker that knew that they were going to be let go at the end of the pay period

I hope this is Not what happened to yours

Good Luck

here is what i referred to

Have you recently added running boards? If not and you have them, maybe a bolt came loose and found its way into the frame rail?

I installed a hitch years ago on a car. I dropped a nut that ended up in part of the frame. I said the heck with digging for it, Ill never know its there anyways. Drove me bananas for a week! Finally got a magnet and was able to get it out.

GTYankee, I had heard it was a soda bottle with note in it, who knows?

moondawg, Try a telescoping magnet in the nooks and crannies, or dealer issue. I'm sure it'll make that tech's day!!!

Actually it might just be a weld ball that is rolling around or a hard plastic, best of luck finding it.

Try leaving a magnet inside the frame, whatever rolls by may get stuck to it.
