    When I drive in the highway, this obnoxious sound comes from the a frame on the front passenger side window. It starts at 65 mph and gets more constant the higher the speed gets. Any ideas? Video attached.

    Your video didn't attach for some reason but it is almost certainly the door seal. Common problem, usually worse in crosswind. There is a very long thread with people trying to track this down. Check out this post well into that thread describing a fix. Many different ways to do it, but basically need to get the door seal squeezed more by adding some sort of additional foam or rubber there. Read the whole thread, but pay particular attention to post 129 linked below.

    Just an FYI. The noise came from the seal between the door and the car by the rounded part of the window. To locate the source I used blue painters tape and taped around the edges. Once found I took the truck to the dealer and told them the issue. They then replaced all the weather stripping since the truck was under warranty. I have not heard the noise since and the truck is much quieter so I killed two birds with one stone.
