Freaky Rattling Noise

When my truck is in gear, but stopped, like at a traffic light, I hear a very distinct, very metallic vibration/rattling. My first impulse is that it is the torque of the engine bringing my dual exhaust in contact with the frame or tow package etc. But everything is secure when I get under the truck. When I was purchasing this truck I testdrove an identical make and model with duals on it and heard that noise--absolutely sure it was a sign of bad news I rejected that truck for my current ride. Anyone else experience this? Solutions?

Re: Freaky Rattling Noise

it could be as simple as a heat shield loose and rattling or something like that. let the truck idle and listen for the source of the noise. you can use a long screwdriver as a sort of stethescope if you find the right area. if you cant find anything this way, then maybe its something internal and can have that checked out

Could be the Catalytic converter rattling, or breaking up
