I did this 2 weeks ago before a 4 hr road trip and it made a world of difference. Not too mention the doors close like a BMW now. The only problem is now I hear other rattles like the center console drink holders.

I did it a little while back. It does make a big difference. There are two complaints though. The doors are a little harder to close now. So people don't always get them closed the first try. Also the stripping wants to try and fall off every now and then. Other than that it's great.

I did the mod to mine and noticed some reduction in noise....but I thought it was pretty quiet to start with. It does make the door closing sound more solid..but sometimes more difficult. I think for the cost of the supplies (check ebay), it's a worthwhile mod. It took less than 15 minutes to install.

I was wondering if I drilled some small holes here and their like the orginal door molding had like every six inches into the latex tubeing to let out the traped air out when the doors are closed ?

I'm neutral on it, I really liked it at first, but now, not so much. I did the driver's side doors on my crew cab and left the passenger side.

The pros are that it is a bit quieter, not a lot, but noticeable, and the doors do close nice and solidly.

There are some real cons though, the doors do close solidly, you really have to follow through or almost slam them, especially once it got cold up here and the latex tubing gets stiff. It's annoying. The weatherstripping is starting to wear the paint off at few points where it's rubbing. Most annoying of all is a high pitched whistling sound that I can't figure out exactly where it's coming from, but it's real close to my left ear. It only started when the weather turned cold, and goes away when the truck gets really warm. I plan on putting some kind of lube on the weatherstripping, likely silicon style and see if that helps, if not, I'll be yarding the latex tubing out, because the whistling will drive me insane otherwise.

I had the same problem in my '11. When it got ton -25c it would whistle real bad until it warmed up. I just wrote it off as the weatherstripping getting hard from the cold. My '12 so far hasn't started whistling yet and I hope it doesn't because it is real annoying.

Hmmmmmm.... My drivers door is already hard to shut.... But it rattles a lot. So I'm at a loss what to do. I want to do this mod, but I'm afraid it would make my doors impossible to shut.

sixdstroke6.0 no the doors close, its not to bad (the rear are a little harder to close because I think the door is smaller and stright down in the front by the hinge) Its makes the door handle a little harder to open but my wife said I'm crazy it seams the same to her, but i live in San Diego so its not to cold here
