2014 Crew Max 4x4 - at 65 MPH and higher I get a "air leak"

Customer Question

2014 Crew Max 4x4 - at 65 MPH and higher I get a "air leak" noise in the cab. I have spent "months" trying to identify the exact spot of the noise.
JA: How old are the hoses? And what driving conditions do you most often encounter?
Customer: I have used packing tape and rapped the entire exterior of the front windshield ....that didn't help. Then today I took tape with me on a test ride and masked-off sections of the door and window and even the mirror.....nothing helped
JA: What year is your Cab?
Customer: 2014 24,000 miles......the noise started about ~9 months ago
JA: Are you fixing your Cab yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: are you reading my last post?
JA: No. I'm the Toyota Mechanic's Assistant.
Customer: Please read from the beginning thread. I state what I have done
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: nope

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

Since you have ruled out the wipers, windshield, doors, mirrors, have you tried the hood, grille, headlights?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I have taped off everything external on the body
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 4 months ago.

I do not believe there is anything else someone not in person can help you with. I will opt out and let another try.
