Hardtop rattle?

Hey everybody! I'm heading out camping this weekend, and decided to put the hardtop on incase I get into nasty weather. After I put it on, I had to run to the dollar store for milk, and remembered why I wanted a truck top: there is something rattling behind the drivers seat that is just relentless! What is it?! Anybody got suggestions as to what it could be, and how to stop it? Thanks!

Is the top bolted down tight enough

Yes, I even replaced the weather stripping that goes along the tub. I think it has something to do with the vents at the back or the window.

Do you have the weatherstripping that goes the hard top around the door? Mine came without it on the driver side and sometimes rattles when I have full doors on. Let's snow in as well in the winter. I

I have weather stripping in the doors if that's what you're asking. I dont think it's the doors rattling either, it's coming from somewhere behind the front seats. I put some silicon around the vents to keep them from moving, so hopefully that does it.

Hope it works! Is that vent in the back supposed to open and close somehow? My top is oem. But the top does have a piece of stripping on it that looks like it seals against the door stripping. But I only have the passenger side piece. I priced it and to me it wasn't in my budget for non essential items lol.

My top is factory, and I don't believe the vents are support to open, I think they just provide a way for air to escape when the doors are being shut
