Question for the group, my 2021 Job2 Platinum PB 4x4 is now making a loud clicking sound while it shifts through the first 3 gears. ICE or Electric. It seems to be really noticeable when the truck ICE/trans is cold and fades after its warmed up. I have tried other drive modes and does the same thing. I know about the Electric to ICE shifting issues. Just curious if others have this same issue before I take it into the dealership. 15k miles on the truck now. TIA...

Do you have the Max Tow package?

You might want to remove the rear wheels and verify that the axle bolt is intact?

Don't think it is the rear bolts, but I will check. I know about that. The sound goes aways after the trans/engine gets warmed up. Only happens when it shift gears. I would think if the loud clicking happens all the time that could be it. Was thinking it was something in the trans because once it reaches 4th+ doesn't make the sound.

Thanks for reporting back.

Good luck with the diagnosis. One possibility eliminated.
