    Anyone else noticing excessive road noise in your Access Cab?

    I hear the road and my exhaust much more than I think I should.

    To test it, I cranked up my new radio... rolled up the windows and closed the doors. I then walked around the truck listening for an increase in volume and tone.

    Sure enough... when I got behind the cab, I could hear the radio's higher pitches clear as day from around the rear seals of the access cab doors.

    I took it into Toyota this morning for a new windsheild... (story for another day :mad:) and asked them about it, and the Service Greater (as I like to call them) seemed to be looking at them and measuring them with his finger then exclaimed that they seals seemed to be within spec.

    Before I get louder about the problem I wanted to know if anyone else was having this problem.

    Just got back from a 2,000 mile road trip (Then a plane to Ireland). I was amazed at how quiet the cab was. When I opened the windows my wife and I were also equally amazed at how loud it was in contrast to the closed windows. :)

    Oh and by the way, it was awesomly nice to get back to my truck after driving around in those little sardine cans they call cars over there... on the wrong side of the "road" (these are suicide pathways). I realized I would not own a truck over there at all...every car had some scrape or dent on the left side. Roads are just too small.

    I haven't had any issues with a loud cab on my AccessCab. I did check the seals this past weekend because my dog's leash was sticking through for several hours of driving. (oops)

    I would measure it yourself and compare it to the seals all the way around. Also, I would take off the seat back on the rear wall and make sure that your air baffels don't have something stuck in them.

    Good luck!

    I'm having a really awefully loud road noise problem with my stick shift sound insulation (none to speak of) I'm on a 3 inch body lift and i think it's made the mechanics put a funky leather matterial in there apposed to a nice quiet rubber. it's also got heat loss issues which make it very heater heavy in the winter. :mad:

    I have a 2016 TRD sport double cab and am trading it in next month because of the road noise. It ALWAYS sounds like the windows are cracked and it drives me nuts. At highway speeds I find it unbearable. Everyone who I take for a drive I watch and wait to see what they do and everyone tries to roll up their window thinking it has to be cracked a little bit. If it is extra windy outside I get a buzzing noise (similar to a roof rack hitting wind) and it makes it even worse. SUPER disappointed because this is a sweet truck.

    My access cab was pretty quiet until I got more aggressive tires and now the tires are loud as hell.
