Default A lot of road noise

On my regular cab 08 I have a lot of road noise coming in on the drivers side. Checked all the weather striping and the window does roll all the way up. Its the weirdest thing. Will dyno mat clear this up. Anyone had this problem?

It could. Did it just start to happen or was it always there?

I just bought the truck a week ago. the dealer took it back and made it a little quieter but it's still borderline obnoxious.

It's the way the doors are attached, they let air get thru, that's why it's the worst in a cross wind, dyno is amazing and will quiet it but won't get rid of that noise

I fixed road noise on my 02 by adjusting the top hinge. Loosen the bolt/nut on the door side of the hinge. Now adjust (pull) the door in towards the truck and tighten it back up. This will pull the upper door frame in slightly and tighten against the rubber seals. You can do it an 1/8th or less at a time till you get the desired closure. My truck is virtually wind noise free after this.
