So it was hard to tell as i was listening to music but i heard it over that enough to know it happened.

Essentially i was turning left out of my subdivision and I gunned it (why not!) and heard what sounded almost like a grinding noise from the front left wheel area. Some what like what ive heard with my old jeep when the tire rubbed the inside of the well.

It went away as soon as I straightened out the wheel and it only lasted a second or two.

I do have rockblokz on there but after inspecting it i couldnt see any rubbing that was obvious.

Ill try and recreate again but wondering if anyone else heard noises like that before?

Welcome to the club! Mine has been doing it intermittently since new.

Yup that is EXACTLY what i am experiencing!
 
Any resolution from the dealer?
After reading the aforementioned thread and hearing others dealer experiences trying to resolve the issue, I decided to not even bother mentioning it. Customer service sucks ass just about anywhere nowadays. To me, it’s not worth the trouble until there is a TSB/approved fix

No grinding here but with the wheel at full lock and accelerating into a turn I get a sound that almost sounded like a something was wiggling or shimmying, or like Paul Bearer making the strange sound he would make like a ghost in WWF.

same. took it to the dealer w/ 3k miles. said everything is fine. this has been posted several times. I (like other people have remarked) need to let the beast warm up. as tempting as it is to gun it she needs to be well warmed up
 
Did this happen on the 1 to 2 upshift? Mine did it a lot when cold and truck was new. But has almost tapered of to nothing with 20k on the odometer.My totally unprofessional and uneducated opinion is it is engaging 2nd gear a millisecond before it lets go of 1st Timing is just slightly off when fluid is cold. It is better now and I have 6.5 years left on the warranty so I wont worry about it.

I think so, I had pulled out to go left from a stop and gunned it. In auto. I’d guess it was shifting to second at the time

Yes. Always the 1-2 shift. I’ve never had it happen between any other gears.
 
This is happening with the wheels turned and under hard acceleration. The front inside tire would tend to slip on the pavement under this condition, especially at the shift. Is the trac-control thinking you are in a sway or slide condition and activating the anti-brake system? When the anti-brake system is activated for trac-control or to stop a sway/slide condition, it sounds as everyone is describing the noise. This could explain why people are getting 10,000's of miles with this condition, but not having anything fail.

Is there a way to disable the traction control to determine if that is the noise?
 
I’ve had it happen in a straight line in sport mode with TC off. The noise/grinding didn’t last as long because the shift was quicker. But still there.

TC off does not always turn off all trac-control actions. Maybe it does on the TRX, maybe not. Is it possible one of the trac-control actions is still activating??? This could explain why people are getting 10,000's of miles with this condition, but not having anything fail.

I don’t think it’s an issue with the traction control. I’ve had it happen on dry pavement under half throttle.
