Thanks for the tip!!
OK... I finally found where my rattle is coming from.

The ignition key cylinder!!!

Yep... If I grab the keys when traveling over a weather beaten road the rattling stops. But, its not the keys, its the tumblers rattling inside the ignition cylinder.

Dealer will need to install a new ignition switch...
