Crew Cab seat belts flapping with windows down

Simple problem, but highly annoying...when I have my front windows down, the seatbelts slap against the leather seats so loud that I typically put my windows back up. Any simple solution to this? My wife also complains that the slapping passengers belt hits her arm, but I'm skeptical...I think she just wants the windows up...

Same thing happens in my 08. I'm curious about this too. I hope someone has some ideas.

Is it only with leather seats though? Because I have a clothe interior and have the windows down about 95% of the time I'm driving around (unless it's raining or I go on the highway) and I've never had anyone complain about anything like that, and I've never noticed it either. I'll check it out tomorrow though to see if mine flap too.

Mine's leather, but I think it's a Crew Cab thing.

I have a cloth interior - Mine does it primarily passenger side when there is no passenger. When I have my front windows down and the rear ones down part way is when it happens most. If the back window are up, I get wind compression in the cab that hurts my ears. Mine doesn't do it constantly, just when there is a gust outside. The only solution I've found is putting up the front passenger window up as high as the back passenger window. I haven't had it happen to the driver's side belt while I'm driving.

Oh, my bad. I misread. Thought you guys were talking about Ext. Cabs. Either way, it was raining all day so I didn't really get a chance to test it out.
