The loudest was the rear center seatbelt and housing (ceiling of cargo area) which I quieted with some bubble rap and a little duck tape. There is also an intermittent one I believe is originating from the passenger side front door pillar. The most annoying one is coming from the dash (I think) between the steering column and center of the dash. May have to take it to the dealer. For comparison, I drove my 03 Dakota 4x4 Quad Cab, with 84k+ on it, down a brick street today. To my amazement there was not even the hint of one rattle. Rather impressive and I have to admit I have a new found respect for the ole girl!

Being a 2010 you shouldn't have rattles and stuff, take it back to the dealer and see what they say. Bubble wrap and duct tape, that's quite severe.

I know the passenger side door rattle you're referring to... I took it in and the dealer was able to fix it (apparently it's common).

Now I have one in my Radio, and another one coming from somewhere in the roof... it's driving me nuts.

Going to the dealer tomorrow, anyone else have any rattles?
