Ok, so my truck had a tick. And I'm new to this whole diesel thing. So I used my diagnosis know-how, and tracked it to the intake side of the engine up top somewhere. It was quite a "crisp" sounding tick, so I figured it was external. With the engine running, looked around a bit, and finally noticed that one fo the clips that hold on to the fuel injector hard lines (metal outer clip with -in my case- blue plastic inserts) looked to be moving. When I put my finger on it, it quieted the tick.

So a simple application of a 5/16" wrench (righty tighty!) snugged everything down, and my truck is a little less noisy.

I've attached a pic to show the clips on my 2005. I figure that any CR truck could have this issue, since the force on the lines is very high due to the momentum of the fuel at that pressure... (don't get me started, I am a Physics teacher...).

Hope this helps save someone some trouble, time, and $$$.
