Default Howling

2009 ram 4x4 2500. Going down the road above 40 mph an if there is a side wind say 20 mph or more I get a howlig noise like when you blow across a pop bottle. I put rags in the bed side board holes but didn't help. Sometimes it does it more than other times. Any body else have this trouble? Thanks

I do have a whistle sound sometimes that seems to be cross wind related when I'm over ~110 km/hr. It seemed to start when I switched the stock antenna for an 8" stubby antenna. I've never really investigated it, just turn my radio up so I don't hear it.

Top of doors catch wind on 3rd gen trucks. That was a design oops. They fixed that mistake on the 4th gen doors
4th gens also get a similar noise, for a different reason

Love them for what they are. Lol

Door seals, and check to make sure the top of the door meets the cab properly

This is a funny topic for me as i took my ram to get the recall done on the rear and had them check for a vibration. The mechanic came to me said they have several complaints on howling and other wind noises with the window's down and there comment was it's the nature of the beast. I said i am not complaining about the noise just the vibration.. haha oh he said he didn't feel it and rotated the tires lol. So my dealership knows about it and it is what it is. hope this helps

The OP has a 3rd gen truck
There is an easy fix for the 4th gen howl
The window down noise is pretty common on ALL vehicles. Just have to wind a rear window down a bit too

Thanks for the help Swaggerville but the howling is when the window is UP can't hear it with the window down. Dumb question what makes a 3 or 4 gen truck?

I have had this happen too. Bothersome, then it just disappears. I also have a rattle and I cannot find the source.
I thought I found it when I bumped the nerf bars and heard the rattle. The bars were tight, but the plastic steps move a little bit. Its to cold to mess with it now. But first chance i get, I am getting out a roll of blue painters tape and I am getting to the bottom of these obnoxious noises I hear. I hope I can get rid of them.
