    Has anyone else experienced dirt and dust coming into the cab through the door handles? My passenger side door lock and handle on the inside gets covered with dirt and dust coming up through the door and out through the handle and door lock area. I have not experienced this on my other vehicles and was wondering if anyone else has dealt with this?

    Must have a bad seal on the plastic behind the door panel.

    Yeah, sounds like you may want to see the dealer. Good luck.

    while were on the subject of dirt and crud -
    I decided to change the cabin filter when I was at the stealer getting a free wash -
    I figured I might as well @ 20 K
    first - 30 $$ for it???
    I pulled the old one - nasty -
    after installing the new one - I ran the fan and promptly blew dirt all over the inside of the cab

    Well alot of the roads I drive on daily the sand and dirt just rains down over the truck at times......I probably drive about 50 miles a day just on dirt roads alone. Plan on visiting the dealer for this and a few other little things as well next time I get back home.
    Side note: I will remember to run the fan on low for a few minutes after changing the inside cabin filter as well.

    Check around on the forum... I believe you can buy a piece of filter for a furnace for a couple of bucks and cut it to fit.
