    I have 09 dbl cab and the other day we we traveling on the highway doing the speed limit into a a pretty strong headwind and a whistling started under the hood, or sounded like under the hood. I tried everything from a/c, windsheild wipers, on and on. The only time it would stop is when the wind wasn't hitting me head on or from the side or when the wind stoppped. Under normal no wind highway speeds all is well. Anybody else have this problem with the Taco?

    Im betting it was the rubber strip that goes around the windshield. Try this....Take a 10" long peice of electrical tape, and place it along the top of the wind shield by teh mirror (on the outside of the glass though), as if to hold down the rubber strip. See if that stops the noise.
