Noise is fixed! A little bracket that was holding my intake up was bent. So when the engine was cold and shook more, the air intake was rattling against the engine bay. I just bent the bracket back up.

Just a little update:

Went outside to start my truck a couple days ago and it wouldn't start. So it now has a new battery.

I also noticed that my front shocks are squeaking a little bit when driving around rough terrain. Probably from pothole nation - aka North Dakota. So I would like to get some new ones sometime during the summer. However it could just be from the cold too.

Anyway, I want summer to come so I can crank my tbars already.

Lol yep. It was quite a nuisance this winter though. A bracket bent and it was jiggling on something making a huge racket. It took me forever to find out what was making the noise. It was a simple fix too, which is always good.

I can just take it out when I wash it. It's held in by like 3 or 4 bolts iirc.
