Default 2010 Ram 1500 with grinding noise

Just received my new 2010 Ram 1500 TRX couple of days ago. Sometimes when i accelerate fast, i hear a grinding noise somewhere in the rear. The grinding lasts as long as you dont release the gas. This happened to me like 10 times. I've tried to show it to the mechanics at my dealership, but i can't reproduce it anymore. Just wondering if anyone experiences something similar

I also get a noise when i drive over 10km/h and switch the 2x4 to 4x4 High. It's that same grinding i've just explained above, but it only lasts for half a second to a second. This noise i can reproduce, but the mechanic at the dealership says it's normal...while the salesman who sold me the car (at the same dealership) recons it's not normal. Anyone hear this noise when they shift their truck from 2H to 4H?

The dealership's manager asked me to come again on monday (tomorrow) and he said he'll have the mechanic check it again. I'd like to get some input from other 2010 owners before i go back.

Thanks

I hate noises too, specially on new trucks, my truck is 2 weeks old with 140 miles on it, i havent experience a lot of noises on it, they come and go, i always say its the truck settling, but if it gets worse i would definetly take it to the dealer, look at the tsb thread on here maybe theres something there that might catch your eye and good luck on getting it fixed

I don't thinking any kind of "grinding" is normal in any type of truck, either 2wd or 4wd. Specially a new truck!
