Default Hellacious rattle in gas tank

Hi everyone im new here this is my first thread. I have a 2001 dodge ram short bed extended cab 8.5 inches of lift on 40's. Im driving down the street a few days ago when i notice the truck is making a noise like something is flapping in the wind, after some searching I narrowed it down to fuel tank inner a$$ end. It sounds like a game of ping pong is being played by a group of pissed off gremlins. I have no fuel gauge issues, spuddering, or stalling. What is my fix and have you had a simliar problem. Any input is appreciated.

One more quick post. Its got new exhaust hangers. Tank straps are tight. And skid plates secure. When I rock the truck from underneath I can clearly here its coming from the inside rear end very back of tank. All components on outside and or connected to tank are gewdntite.

Perhaps the "bathtub" (can't think of actual term right now....) that the fuel pump sits in is bouncing around or broken apart. Just an idea.
