My engine used to make the ticking, however it has stopped. When I changed to to mobil 1 5w-30 the ticking decreased and now at about 10000 miles on the truck I don't hear it anymore.

If this was my only truck I would probably get used to it, but you get out of the Dodge and back in the Toyota and you really notice it. I havent had a car with this much exhaust tick since I put headers on a older pickup. I think the exhaust manifolds have too thin of a gauge of steel. I bet Toyota makes a change by 07.
