Default Wind Noise

Does anyone notice a decent amount of wind noise when driving at highway speeds? It seems to be coming from the passenger side.

You may have a body panel out of alignment. You can put masking tape over the gaps and drive the truck to see if the noise goes away.

Good suggestion ^^^ !

I had that problem on my '99 and it was a folded over, stiff and cracked door seal. I replaced it and no more noise.

Would a panel out of alignment be something you could visually see?

Not always. That's what the tape test is for. If the leading edge of a door is sticking out farther than the trailing edge of the panel in front of it, you'll get wind noise.

OK is that an easy fix if it is an alignment issue? I would rather deal with the noise if they have to do anything major...

Depends on what might need adjusting. I'm no body man so I can't say for sure.

Typically wind noises are easily repaired by adjusting a body panel or sealing up a seam / missing foam piece under the mirror etc. Its usually routine and no big deal. Water leaks can be another issue all together but wind noise is usually simple for a qualified body tech.
