Was driving out on a gravel road the other night and kept hearing a creaking sound. Pulled nearly everything out of the interior to make sure it wasnt an internal noise. Finally isolated it to the body in the rear door area. When pressure is applied to the step, it makes the sound. I can feel a almost popping on the body when pressure is applied and hear a creaking sound. It's makes the sound offroad, so dont think its the step generating the sound, but I could be wrong. Anyone run into this before?

Bumping this up with a new video. Removed the side step and can still replicate. Local dealer and body shop suggesting $9,000 repair which takes the truck out 3-5 weeks. Cutting the cab body open to wield or re-rivet whatever is loose. Not a fan of a 2022 with 6K miles needing a $9K body repair.

Has anyone ever had this issue?

+1 on the silicone grease, hit the body mounts with it or anything. Could just be the plastic molding or plastic cab corner making noise when the body flexes.

At least you are on target. You know the parts you worked on are at very least associated with the noise.

I have this same issue (1,800 miles) on my 2023 gen3. There is a black rubber plug right where your hand is pushing down on the body. If you take off that black rubber plug, you will see where the two body panels meet. They are moving and rubbing against each other. Take your finger and place it on that area and step on the floor board. You should feel the "noise". I took some silicone spray and applied it to the area where they meet. The sound is gone!!!
