A little VTM-4 lock action
and here's the pertinent post with the video linked:
A little VTM-4 lock action
Thanks, once I put "action" next to VTM-4 I found it. That video is an eye-opener.

Sorry Speed! My trifocals got me again. I was sure I read that you had a 2006.

That is EXACTLY what mine sounds like. Although, I have 163,000 on mine and it sounds the same. So it does not appear to worsen over time.

Re: A boring video about an unimportant milestone

While it is soft, it is still penetrating (to my ears). I don't know if I've become more sensitive to it over the years or if mine is getting gradually worse (like the frog in the pot). But I can hear it now even into the low 60 mph range. It begins right when the TC locks at 47 mph. And it's most noticeable to me in the mid 40s.

Closing in on 5 years with the 08 and no tranny whine.

Re: A boring video about an unimportant milestone

I don't believe the tranny whine comes with age/miles. In my experience, you either have it (from new) or you don't have it at all. I prefer the latter option.

I hear it at 47mph, and again around 55-65mph. I have gotten used to it for the most part but I am still sensitive to new sounds on my truck. I think I would have noticed if it had gotten worse, so I have to agree with you that you either have it or you don't.
