The weatherstrip on the doors just needs to be pushed out towards the door more. There's 3M tape you can put up behind the weatherstrip to give a better seal.

Hello, I'm having the same problem with my drivers side door also. Very loud wind noise. I have the super cab. Could you elaborate on that 3m tape fix? Thanks!

adjust the latch to make the door alittle tighter.

Is the weatherstripping flat and worn? Maybe you should replace it.

Interesting, I'll check that latch, I assume you mean on the small door?
If the weatherstripping is worn, where do you get a replacement, at a dealership? Is it hard to put on?
I did notice this gap by my window. Anyone ever see this happen? Its like something shrunk.
I was going to put some black silicone in there to fill the gap. Could this be the cause of the air leak?

Clean the weatherstrip with silicone spay on a paper towel.

If you can see where the door rubs on the seal replace it.
