    Just wondering if the pillar weather strip was the issue ?? I haven't had a chance to try and isolate it yet... As mine as well is whistling at highway speeds...

    I just installed back my shorty antenna. Will try it tomorrow to & from work to see if whistle is back.
    I never cared to do it but after seeing your 3 wiper videos, i'm wondering if maybe it was the wipers and dealer did something to them.

    Cross my fingers but so far so good with mine. No strange noises or whistles. With only 2,200 miles on the odometer, the only thing I noticed so far is the back doors don't close all the way unless I slam them and my center console doesn't close very easy unless I slam it as well.

    Forgot to update on that.
    Unfortunately installing back the shorty antenna brings back the noise.
    I pulled over and remove it immediately.

    Good luck mate!

    I wonder if your antenna mount is loose? That chromed ring plate on top of the mount is actually a special threaded unit that tightens to the truck body, holding the little painted mounting housing to the side of the truck. Mine was not snugged up very tightly when I changed my antenna out. I snugged it on more before screwing my antenna into it. I didn't have a spanner wrench to fit it, so I used a strip of rubber from an old bike inner tube. Wrapped that around it to protect the finish, then grabbed it with channel locks and snugged it a little.

    Had mine in for the whistle as well !! Dealer said the windshield moulding was not installed correctly on that side way home still whistle !! Will call them again in the morning !! Anyone else have this issue resolved ?? It's not the wipers or the antenna I even went as far as using paint friendly masking tape and taped off the windshield and door jamb !! Still whistles!!
