Wind noise drivers window, or back window?

It's driving me nuts, its a small wind noise, but cant pinpoint it. Is this common guys? Am I just being too picky?

Also, my truck is 4x4, its my first 4x4. Sometimes when Im driving, it feels uh, clunky... like when I accelerate quickly it feels like Im on a gravel road, tiny bumps, (not slippery). Is this at all weird?

my truck gets the same wind noise from drivers door/window. if you push on the window when driving it goes away a little bit. not sure if getting thicker weatherstripping will help out or not. i usually just turn the music up but it is annoying knowing its there.

my 4x4 feels fine.

I hear wind noise as well. Sounds like it's coming from the rear passenger side, possibly in the split rear window, but I can't pinpoint it. There's no leaks when it rains, so I just turn up the radio.

I believe they all do it... Both of my 2nd Gens have done it. A friend of mine did have a problem where the seal in his windshield started to separate. The noise was very loud though.

I had a wind noise that sounded like it was in the passenger front door, near the door handle.
It was louder when outside temp was lower.
Looked, pushed, wiggled....finally a friend of mine riding in the passenger seat squeezed the mirror trim tighter to the door frame outside-presto! Noise gone.
Turns out, the black plastic mirror housing has separated slightly from the door frame.
I ran a bead of clear silicone caulk in the gap and the noise is gone.

Had the wind noise as well. Sounded like a kazoo on the freeway at 70+. Just had the windshield resealed last week and so far it seems to have fixed the problem.

Not sure about the "clunky" feeling you're describing.

Driver door window [on DC] for sure...

Starts at about 40mph and noise increases with speed. It's definitely not the roof rack which has it's own [expected] at highways speeds. On my list to have the dealer check out next time I'm there.

I am taking mine in today for the same annoying wind noise in my 2011 DC from the drivers door.
I have siliconed every crack and used extra weather stripping to no avail

2013 Tacoma Noise

I have a 2013 Tacoma access cab TRD
The wind noise is driving me crazy. comes from rear of cab and sounds like a window is open. gets worse with cross winds, have seen a few solutions on here but haven't seen any on the newer 2013.
Took it to dealer and they adjusted doors and told me that it was normal to to have some noise.
I had a 2007 Tundra Double cab and it was very quiet.

Any suggestions

Here's a short clip of the wind noise I'm getting. It alternates between both front doors and it's coming from the door seals. I can push on the door and change the tone of the noise. This video was from a 2 hour drive and it did it all the way home. I've had it at the dealer three times now only to be told there's nothing they can do for me. I contacted Toyota about it and finally got a call back today. They're having me take it to a third dealership and monitoring the outcome to find a fix. I'll believe it when I see it

Also have the wind noise. Dealer replaced a gasket near the grill. No luck. Changed out the grill and said it was fixed. Sorry wrong again. When I take it in this time someone is going for a drive at 60 mph and then they can tell me they fixed it. Then they can keep it until it is fixed. No way should this amount of wind be considered normal in any vehicle.

Unhappy

Took it in for the 5000 mile service and was told by the dealer the wind noise and rust spots on the frame had to be okayed by toy rep. Since when do minor warranty issues have to be okayed by corp. 7000 miles and still waiting for dealer rep to give me a ruling..
