Default 2011 2wd, 2.3, supercab, auto sounds like a canary WTF?

Ok so when I drive my truck, only with a load usually although I've heard it empty once or twice when driving over rough or slightly rough roads at residential speeds. I am going nuts; I thought it was the tailgate, no. I looked under the truck to see if the spare tire was loose as I had a Tacoma a few years ago that made the same "Chirp--chirp--chirp--chirp" and it was the spare tire not tightened up. I had another car that made the same sound and it was the little rubber hood adjusters on the radiator support. Checked my Rangers still not the problem, I got under and shook the entire exhaust system to see if it was the hangers and hardware still nothing. What am I missing or is the noise a characteristic with Rangers.

I get a chirp somewhere in my dashboard every now and again when I go over a big enough bump. Definitly inside the cab though.

Did you check your jack and wheel wrench?
Did you check the area of the exhaust where the ball flange and spring studs are?

No not yet, thanks I will look at these items as well. I thought it might be the front bumper but no dice.
