    2015 DCSB and the 2 front doors make so much f'n noise it drives me insane. I've search the forum and tried everything suggested. Lubed the door seals with silglyde, taped up the painted areas, etc etc, and there is still this super annoying sticking/unsticking sound while driving down the road. Anyone else have it and successfully fix it?

    Coming from a Dakota (quad cab 4x4) one of the first things I noticed with my Tacoma was the overall noise in the cabin when driving. Since my youngest son got the Dakota, I was able to compare the insulation or deadening material in the doors, floors and roof. A simple tap on the doors and roof told me right away that the Tacoma sounded like a tin can while the sound from the Dakota was more like a thud. This prompted me to totally gut the cab of the Tacoma and install a two part sound deading anywhere and everywhere I could. The result was a much quieter ride (along with screen spline for the windshield) and going from a tin can sound to a deep thud.

    Not sure if my reply answers the question to your dilemma, but it did mine. Have you looked at the door hinges and latches to see if they're snugged up?

    My 07 makes a sound as you described. I use Aerospace 303 on all the weather striping and the noise does go away for a while. Then when it starts making noise again I just reapply.

    303 is good stuff. I use it on my truck and trailer tires.

    2nd Gens use thinner sheet metal than my 1st Gen, I've noticed. Rattles and vibrate more.

    Yep, I find if silicone the rubber seals, it’s much better

    Did you spray that on the seals or directly on the body of the truck?

    I think the real secret is keeping the dirt and grime cleaned off the door and body.

    but the Teflon spray definitely helps with that also.

    I keep my truck pretty clean being a detailing enthusiast. The only thing that can be making noise is all that damn rubber around the doors. I just ordered that stuff so I'll spray the shit out of it this weekend. I really hope it helps b/c I love the truck but the noises make me mental.

    I have always used just a wet rag to clean the seals when I wash the vehicle. It’s amazing all the dirt and grit that comes off them. Then apply 303 real good. So far no problems.

    Got the spray but it's been cold as shit here so I haven't gotten to it yet. I really hope it works. Seems like the fall when it starts getting cold is when all the noise starts.

    Just coated all the jams and weather stripping on the driver's side. Looks like someone ejaculated all over my door but if it shuts it up, I'm ok with that. Also snugged up the bolts holding the door hinges on. Will report back after a little drive time.

    I think this is the answer you seek. I had the same problem last summer and tried silicone, armorall, etc. The wet stuff just makes them stick and pop more. Once they dried back out and stopped trying to stick to the body of the vehicle, the seal popping sound got better. I think the dry Teflon spray is the ticket. It'll let them move relative to the body of the truck when it flexes and you won't get that 'stick and release' pop.
    Yes, something dry and slippery.
