Abused & Chattering

I've been overseas since September 2015 and left the truck parked outside until just a few weeks ago. 2 -40 and 4 ft of snow winters later it clearly needs a little work.
2010 Ram 1500 TRX4 /w 5.7 Hemi

So far I know the outer CV boots are cracked - no problem
Had to re-grease just about everything - no problem
Oil change sadly had been about 10,000km/2 years between but it had been parked most of that time.

First up, belt squeals/chirps like an army of crickets. I'll be pulling the belt tomorrow (weather permitting) to check this out. Belt looks fine so I'm guessing a bearing is going somewhere. Sure I'll find that.

The one sound I really can't figure out though is a sort of clicking/chattering like someone is spinning a noise maker. This sound does not happen on idle or when stopped. Only occurs when driving a nice even speed.
Once it starts, just tapping the gas even the tiny bit, not even enough to change speeds or kick out the MDS stops the noise for a bit.
Noise continues while coasting until about 10km/h.

Any thoughts? Things I should check while messing around with the belt?
My initial thoughts are maybe it's a CV joint but I doubt it.
Might be something related to MDS or maybe even water pump/ac/alternator bearings giving up.

Engine has also thrown a code from time to time. A few days/week on, then days/weeks off then comes back.
Can't remember the code exactly but the description was related to the MDS solenoids on oil pressure dropping below 35psi

Did you check the level of your transmission fluid when the transmission was at normal operating temperature?

I'd checked everything when I first started it up and only thing I found was that the oil was a little low. Will check again though.

For some reason our trucks do weird things when the fluid level is low.

It also might just need to be driven for a while to get everything loosened back up.

When looking for a squeal I use a squirt bottle of water and go around to the different pulleys and see if i can get the squeal to change or stop. Does the clatter sound like engine noise or drivetrain? Welcome home..
