Possible a muffler or heat shield loose....ya just gotta get under and give her a good inspection...try rattling tailpipe and muffler. (COLD) and check u joints

Can you hear it when you bounce the truck while it's standing still? I had a trailing arm fracture on my monte carlo once - the broken ends ended up flapping around; but only connected with the under carriage when I went over a bump while moving.
