SuperCab door rattle

Just traded in my '05 SuperCrew for a new '14 SuperCab.
The old truck was rock solid without a rattle or squeak. Now the driver's side half-door rattles by the top latch. I realize there is no pillar-post to anchor on, therefore I wonder how common this is.
Any other SuperCab owners have this problem? I've brought it back to the dealer whose fix worked for a coupla days but the rattle has returned.

My '09 rattles when the door is closed just because there is no solid point for it to close against(makes it feel like its not closed enough) The wind likes to whine thru it at the right angle. Should have learned from my Uncle's 250 supercab he hated it it always seemed like the doors were going to fall of it. I know I will not buy a supercab again.
Rant over.

Can you do the door seal mod to help the seals stiffen up and prevent some movement/play?
