Really appreciate the write up. I have had a leak problem for almost a year before I found your solution. Went to Lowes and bought a gasket similar to the one you mentioned and I have been leak free for about 4 months. Can not thank you enough.

I had the dealerships body shop swap out gaskets on my 3rd brake light yesterday and the there's still a dam leak. I was going to do it myself, but they did the work for free.

They seemed real hesitant about tearing out the back window so I'm sure what to do. I've seen a couple of threads where guys are using the flowable silicone. Do you think this will solve my problem? I'm at a loss.

Great advice and right up. I'd never thought to look for leaks inside the cab, but now you've got me thinking. We just had a great rain storm, maybe worth checking out.

Just because they replaced the gasket doesn't mean it'd fix the leak. The gaskets are a faulty design. I'd recommend spending $10 and 30 minutes and follow my write up and try that out before doing anything with the window. It's more than likely the light.

Will do.

Thanks.

The morning after taking delivery of my '11 I found buckets of water inside after an all night rainfall. Took it back, and eventually dealer ended up taking the third light out of another truck on the lot to get me rolling (I bought out of town and couldn't wait for parts). Have been in torrential rains since, and it hasn't leaked a drop.
My '10 has never leaked a drop, but my '06 started leaking after a couple years.
Seems like a weak design area...if anyone sees water inside the cab this is the first place I'd look.

Another victim here. Pulled out the 3rd brake light and saw the river running through there. Sure made a mess of my interior though.
