    I have a 2018 TRD off road long bed. I'll check if my truck has that. I don't believe so.

    I'll bet that is where they dumped all of the low end torque of the 3.5 liter engine.

    No strange hole on either rear door of my truck, just a strange driver.

    There is a plug in the hole, isn't there? I wonder if it's an aftermarket rustproofing??

    Maybe a drilled hole for paint less dent repair?

    Did you buy used or new? I’ve never seen a hole there. Looks like someone drilled it for some purpose.

    Is there paint on the edge of the hole, like the hole was made and then the vehicle painted?

    I see metal on the edge of that hole. ;) Maybe running speaker wires for a surround sound system. LOL!

    Maybe someone thought it would help equalize the cab pressure when the door was shut?
    Is it on both sides?

    You should paint it and plug it before it rusts no matter what it is.

    A bit of touch up paint or anti rust treatment followed by a hole plug will cure that fast.
