some a-hole tried to break into my truck once,
he put a crowbar at the top of the drivers side door and started pulling.
it bent it quite a bit before my alarm went off.
now i have this terrible wind noise.
so you guys can stop complaining xD

Read on many of the forums mine has the same problem. It is the shark fin design of the doors, the only way I have found to resolve the issue is to bend the top of the door. I have tried placing another rubber behind the seal around the door,helps allot, virtually gone. Going to try another style of rubber, let you know. Do not want to bend the door.

My 04 too. My driver side door is slightly misaligned, according to my eye, so I cant imagine its the rubber seal. The driver and pass. doors sound different when opening and closing too which to me is a sign of misalignment ( I need to get a pick up so you all can see and im sure youll agree).

It got worse after I sound deadened all the doors, everything was quiet but it seemed to amplify the wind noise.

I looked at other forums and common problems for 2008 Dodge Ram. I may have bought one that is worse than others. When there is a cross wind, it whistles badly but the extra seal helps but not a fix. I wrote Dodge and one of the main reasons for changing the door design in 2009. Looking to buy a 2010.
