Is anyone else getting a whistle seemingly from the front? When i get above 70mph i get a whistle like air is coming in. My dad said "Its a truck thing" but he still drives is 79 F100.

Trying to figure out if its worth a dealership visit or not.

I had a whistle on my 2014 1500 Sport. Happy I traded it.
I only did one drive over 70 with the rebel. No whistle. I hope none ever.
I'll try to remember to update you after next 70+ drive

I have a faint whistle.
It seems to comes from the passenger side maybe around the mirror.
I only hear it with windows down going highway speeds.

I traded my 2014 1500 Express yesterday for a Rebel. The Express had the whistle. I believe it is wind noise flowing around the antenna but not positive. So far, no whistle in the Rebel and it drove me nuts so hope it does not materialize with the Rebel over time.

Can't say that I have heard anything on mine. We can go 80mph up here and I didn't hear anything. Next time I will listen more closely to see if I hear anything.

3000 miles later that whistle is unbearable.
See video at 70mph
Of course the higher you go the louder it gets.

What I found so far on the web.
Seems like it's a gen 4 issue. even while I did not find any mention of 2013-2015.

Seems like Chrysler released a RRT & TSB about that
RRT 11-057
TSB 23-024-11

Problem seems to be from weather striping on the pillar.

Take off your antenna and drive over 70 to make sure that is not the cause due to wind disturbance flowing over it to the mirror. Worth a shot and wanted to do that with my Express but never got around to it. Fortunately, the Rebel does not have it.

I did remove the antenna before on both my 2014 Sport and the rebel now.
I did a lot more trying to isolate the noise.
Until I found what I posted above I was trying process of elimination. I only found two pictures but every day I would tape different parts of the truck since the dealer could not find a solution.

I emailed them and finally will be taking the truck in next week for many things. The whistle, the two recalls (radio and steering column) & 5k service. We'll update on that.
