    I've been plowing in this truck for 3 years and every winter I forget to ask but when I go into a pile and toss it in reverse it chatters a bit. It only happens a few times a night. Just wondering if anyone has had this happen to them.

    Maybe this ?? doesnt say chatter but may be what you are experiencing.Heres a TSB

    Clunk or Pop from TorqShift at 2-3 MPH, 2003-07:
    A clunk or pop may be heard or felt on drive away after starting the engine, backing up and shifting to drive, usually around 2-3 MPH. This condition may be intermittent. It is the result of normal backlash (movement) between the splines on the low/reverse one-way clutch. Broadcast Message 5904

    TorqShift Harsh/Slipping Engagements, Upshifts, and/or Downshifts:
    If these symptoms are experienced after the batteries have been disconnected, then it is due to the transmission adaptive strategy being cleared from the computer. This may occur when the vehicle is delivered new from the factory as well. Warm the engine and transmission to operating temperature. Perform three series of upshifts at light, medium and heavy throttle. Perform three sets of gear engagements (N-R, N-D, D-R, R-D) with the brake pedal firmly depressed and waiting three seconds between each engagement. Perform these steps once in normal mode and once in tow/haul. Broadcast Message 1196
