I have two truck lids and when you are closing them they sound very tiny is they at thing that can be done to prevent this sound? With the 70 lid there isn't very many hole to pump filler or spray foam in?

Mine sounds like you are dropping a dumpster lid.
Be carful with spray foam, may trap moisture.
In the old days when our cars were young, and your/my garage was cold and you pulled outside in the warm air/sunshine, condensate would form inside the trunk area.
Matter of fact everything that was cold, condensate would form on and in.
And that reminds me of the two nail holes in my trunk lip.
I remember just opening the garage doors at this particular time of year you could watch your car sweat.

You can either

A: drill a few holes in the inner structure and put some autobody grade claim in the cavity..and hope that you didn't put too much and end up with big dimples on the surface.

B: Painstakingly remove the outer skin of the trunk lid and put some body sealer on the back sides of the panel where it meets the inner structure and then fit the panel back on.

I'd just live with it personally. My car has a luggage rack on it, imagine how that makes the truck sound

We have oil barrels in most of the 70ish yards I work in. About mid morning as the temps begin to rise, those lids on the drums are gonna pop from vacuum to pressure very loudly.  Closing a Charger decklid is a very similar sound. This is as inherent to the car's design as the reduction starter noise that people liked to kid about. I'm certain that this quirk could be eliminated with modern products. BUT then you lose a bit of the charm as well.
