    Was driving about 65 on the highway yesterday, and then heard a muted thump from overhead. Looking in the rearview, and the weather stripping (that goes down the top of the roof from front to back) on the drivers side had come loose in the front, and was flying behind my truck, still attached at the back. I pulled over and re-fastened it in the front, and it seems relatively secure, but I noticed it only attaches in the front and back, nowhere else throughout its length does it attach. Anyone had this, and know of a fix for it? I took pictures of the stripping after I had reattached it.

    Toyota's are actually all notorious for this problem. Put some glue on the area's where the moulding clips into the roof, and it'll hold.

    Do you know where you can get the weather strip besides the dealership?

    I had the exact same thing happen. After whacking the back of the cab a couple times it flew off and got ran over by a semi behind me on the interstate. I picked it up and it was slightly scratched up on one side. Still under warranty so I took it to dealer for a new one (and I didn't give them the old one so they wouldn't just stick it back in).
