f350 tras noise?

Any F350 owners having a transmission noise when shifting under load. I have a 2014 F350 king ranch and when I tow my 5er when the trans shifts from 3rd to 4th I get a noise that sounds like 2 heavy pieces of metal rubbing together making that squeak sound.
I have taken it to 5 dealerships and none of them will even take it for a test drive. Ford put out a bulletin on a transmission noise and told all dealers not to even look at them that the noise is normal on the 2014 transmissions.
My question is any other F350 owners have this problem. And how can Ford say any noise in the transmission is this noise. Seems to me that they should at least test drive to here the noise. However I cant even get the noise on paper with any dealership to at least have it noted.
I ended up purchasing a 150k 7 year bumper to bumper warranty on the truck to play it safe.

I have not noticed any noise but I do get hard shifts at the same point 3 to 4. When I told Ford they said I need to change my oil then when I told them it was only 1 month old they said that it was normal

My truck is relatively new with less than 8K on it and it's a 2015, however I haven't noticed any noises yet. But I also have the Ford extended warranty, it just makes sense due to the cost of repairs.

Ford Shift

26k on my 2012 and nothing so far. Only level towing so far though and nothing over a couple hundred miles. Good shifting and no out of the ordinary noise. Will be hitting the Rockies in June so it will be a good test. Hope it all works out for you.
