Yep. My 2011 did it this week while pulling my 4500 pound boat. Only 2000 miles on truck. When not pulling, don't hear it.

Will communicate the info of the other thread (TSB) to my dealer today and see with what they come up....thanks !
Picked up my truck this morning at dealer, he said that the torque converter TSB is not a valid one in Canada...and they could not duplicate the problem...So I got in the truck and as soon as I hit the gas pedal, guess what, at 1200-1500 rpm it started the frisbee syndrome, I got back in, grabbed a mechanic and I showed him off...once completely warmed up, it went away, and would come back not so often...Anyway, it is going back to dealer monday...

sent the truck back to dealer today for investigating what was the noise after I drove it with the mechanic last week, he said at the time he thought he new what it was..... when I arrived there, the service guy said he already ordered a new catalytic converter as per mechanic investigation ! We'll see if that was the problem....! Stay tuned.

I just picked up my 2011 two weeks ago and I am hearing a noise from the exhaust between 1500-1700 rpm. It's like a growl but not like the noises described here prior. I took it to my dealer and they said they are goingto contact chrysler and see what they can do. I showed them the star case on these and they were surprised.

I haven't noticed it in mine, but I can't really heard anything thanks to my tires and I guess the exhaust. I do know that I dont have any vibration in the pedal tho. My buddy's '11 Sport has the pedal vibration, not sure of the tc gorwl.

I am getting ready to mod my truck a bit, but this TC conversation is making me somewhat concerned. I tried to produce the "growling frisbee" noise but have not had any success, which is a good thing. I plan to lift within the next few months, but think I should hold out until the TC goes... ya' think?
I am assuming the larger tires-->more stress on tranny, will give me a some warranty trouble.

Below is a poll I started to see how many people are having this problem. More widespread than I thought. As for me, I fall into the I don't know category.

I tried to get my Outdoorsman to do it, but nothing. Maybe it is a towing issue. I haven't towed anything yet and at least 2-3 of the responders say it happens when towing or have towed something. Maybe the clutch can't take the load and the issue starts when enough pressure is put on it.


edit
Maybe add to the poll, "If you got the noise, do you tow or have you towed?".
