Noticed mine doing the same thing. Like mentioned above, I'll wait until a "new" batch of them come out, HOPEFULLY fixing the issue, so I only have to do it once....
A small batch of issues with the 10 speed tranny. I was one of them. 1900 miles, 3rd gear shift solenoid in the valve body crapped out. Replaced under warranty, been fine since (15k now). The talk about the failed lifters begs me to ask the question, is normal maintenance performed on these trucks, and is the proper oil used when maintenance is required? The reason I ask, first, is I don't know, and secondly, I had a 5.3 with AFM (2014), with 110k on the motor. I changed the oil when it told me, with a DEXOS approved oil, in the proper weight (not naming brands, it shouldn't matter), and that motor was flawless. The ONLY problem I had with it was a few of the exhaust manifold bolts let go, so I had a leak. I got that fixed and all was good.
Yes, this is one solution, however, for me, it is not always needed. If there was an option to lock it into place only when needed, that would be worth it. I use my "step" a lot, as a step. I would prefer to not to have to click that every time to release the step, only deploy it when I need to, to hold cargo. So basically, invert the setup, push the button to release it, and lock the flap in place, rather than auto deploy.
I'm one of the few 10 speed owners with issues. 1900 miles, one of the shift solenoids in the valve body ****** the bed. First and second gear, that's it. No reverse. Once it was fixed, and, now at ~13k on the odometer, zero issues, and still love the way it shifts. I'll chalk it up to a random defective part and move on.
It could actually be the transmission fluid pump. I thought I had motor issues on my 2014 5.3, with a knock similar to that, and they diagnosed it as the pump. After replacing that, the truck was silent. Granted, a 6 speed and the "old" 5.3 but...... Also, after they fixed that, I drove the truck for another 25k with no issues until I traded it in.
