Gas Tank Vibrating

Has anyone had this problem.
I have a 2 door prerunner 2003
The gas tank rattles on the highway.
Any suggestions on the fix?

Is the vibration constant or only at certain speeds/gears?

What have you done as far as investigating the issue?

I noticed the gas tank is kinda loose. Thought maybe it was a known problem.

No, I have never heard of it or experienced it. You should be able to just tighten the straps up.
