Dash issues

I read on some other post about inserting a piece of rubber or other pliable material between the dashboard top and windshield. I have a 2014 Tacoma double cab with about 2000 miles on it now. The dash started rattling last week and after taking my radio out and climbing under the dash looking for something causing a rattle without much luck, it appeared to be coming from the dash top next to the front windshield. I owned a 2011 Tacoma before my 2014 and experienced similar issues. I choose to use a 1/2 inch gasket cut to length of the dashboard opening at the base of the front windshield. Noise problem solved, looks great and quiet. I wanted a fix that had a factory appearance and the gasket install worked for me. It's actually hard to see anyway but if you do it does look uniform. A simple solution, minimal cost and took 5 minutes. Hope this helps. I will also say, I did notice more insulation around the air ducts and other areas to help reduce noise in this 2014 then the 2011 Tacoma.
