    Mine started squeaking this winter. The squeaking went away several months later. During this time the Raptor never got washed...it lived outside in the desert.

    Thanks, was just thinking/listening to mine the other day, thinking what to use on them next. I will give fluid film a go. Have tried many others.

    Less than 4K on my 2020 and after a trip this weekend it’s squeaking like a stuck pig. Hopefully a good wash addresses the issue.

    I can tell ya this- my 2018 I put 35k on it never squeaked at all, but I doused the undercarriage 2x w/ amsoil HDMP including the rear leafs

    My 2020 has only 3k miles now & I already noticed some squeaking/creaking from leafs when standing inside the bed or on the running boards, went through car wash & it went away

    in spring when it’s warmer out I guess I’ll give the 2020 the same amsoil treatment (& paint the rear diff/axles in rustoleum black) - i didn’t do it this time when brand new a) b/c I bought it in late November & b) the newer truck has a much thicker more durable looking/feeling coat on the frame/undercarriage than the thin matte finish coating that was on my 2018

    I say hit the leafs up w/ some of that amsoil HDMP or another heavy duty long lasting penetrating lubricant of your choice
