    I have Bils at 2.8 and never heard a peep from them. I will double check the bumper this weekend. I don’t have a spare tire (train horn) and will double check the crush blocks. Ty!

    Have a helper step on the board like that while you look underneath, being that simple to replicate and pronounced it should be easy to pinpoint.

    Almost sounds like the board itself scraping a pinch weld or thin steel.

    Looking at that now. Body Bolts seemed a little loose too. Zone specified 65lbs. I emailed them to verify that’s correct.

    I just installed recently also and have no squeeks. Mine are all torqued to 65FT LBS also.

    Mine's a 2011 so older than yours

    Figured out the issue. My train horn compressor is mounted on the frame by the body mount. The Sheild/cover mounts to the bottom of the compressor and is rubbing the body mount after the lid . Just need to “reposition” it!

    Now that I bought an impact gun and everything else I should have used, I bet I could do it in that time.

    I got a Milwaukee M18 impact a few years back. I dont think I would wrench without one now.


    To be honest, Ive taken my truck appart a few times before. So that did help a bunch knowing where stuff was.
