Greetings, I have an 2004 XLT Adrenaline and when driving, there is a slight/mild rubbing sound coming from under/around the dashboard, primarily on the driver's side. If there are two people in the front, the sound level increases. Definite friction between two objects but I can't detect from where. Any help? Thanks!

Have you checked your body mounts? Just an idea.
Good call and very common with 2001-05 (Gen 1) ST's. Especially the "B" and "C" orange colored foam mounts below the cab.

Lot's of info on line including this video:

Yes! It is the B and C group bushings that are toast. The A and D group bushings are like brand new and I won't need to replace those. I gave those bushings a good soaking with silicone lubricant.
