New stiffer frame means less rattles?

ReviewThe door panels rattle, the dash rattles, the cup holder
rattles. It has been to the dealer several times and
they cannot fix so now they claim they cannot hear any.
On some roads like I45 between Houston and Dallas,
at higher speeds, the rear of the truck bounces really
bad (Ithought the rear axle was coming off). I have
heard this is common. The gas mileage is terrible (4.7L
w/ auto tranny). I get only 14 on hwy. The radio
controls are a stretch, whick I frequently use to drown
out the rattles.
Best FeaturesHandles very well, car like ride on smooth roads. Has good power for small engine. Nice storage under seats. Roomy interior.
Worst FeaturesReduce rattles, improve gas mileage (at least to what is advertized), make radio controls easier to access, fix the rear end "bounce" at highway speeds on the Interstates. Add a slower AC fan speed. Make the turn signals automatically turn off after the turn.
