Nope, it has no aftermarket accessories
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago
What area of the vehicle is the popping coming from? Front, rear or center area?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When you're in it driving it sounds like it's coming from the center between the cab and bed pretty much center
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago
You mentioned cab mounts but didn't mention the bed mounting bolts. Check to make sure all bed fasteners are tight and make sure bed has no cracks in the mounting supports..
Keep me posted...
Thank you,
Robert

You have not yet answered my question
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago
I'm waiting for your response from checking all the Bed Mounting Bolts, Have you checked these yet?
Also have you checked for debris trapped between the cab and bed? If something is trapped in between it will definitely cause noises when the body and frame are flexing..
Basically there is no common failures that will cause the popping noise as described. Because of this, all I can do is offer suggestions for you to check. If you would like a "Definite" answer, a technician WILL have to be in front of the vehicle and be able to drive it to hear for himself the noise...
I may be able to help further if you are able to record a video of you driving it and flexing the body to make the noise. If I could hear the noise for myself, I may be able to offer some better suggestions...
Keep me posted...
Thank you,
Robert

I am a technician ASE certified also, I just thought a dodge tech. might of ran into the same noise before and would know what it was. Everything you have told me I have already done, that's why I was asking for help. The customer has picked up the truck and will be dropping it off again soon. I will record noise then and get back to you if I don't get it figured out by then.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm in the process of checking tech. bulletins now.
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago
I had already checked for service bulletins, there were no related service bulletins but I did find a Star Case referring to a popping noise in front while turning. This didn't sound like your concern so I didn't think it was worth mentioning...
I'll go ahead and post it so you can read through it...

Nope, it's definitely not in the front area or front suspension. It is a metallic pop like the frame or body tweaking, you would think that the frame was cracked or a bolt was loose on a cross member the way it sounds.
Dodge Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Master replied 2 years ago
Speaking of loose bolts, did you tighten ALL bolts that you can get to? Especially Crossmember bolts as slightly loose bolts in crossmembers can cause popping noise..
Keep me posted...
Thank you,
Robert
