I did this on my Excursion some years back, and it made a significant difference on how well the doors shut, a reduction in noise, and a reduction in dust entering the vehicle.

I added tubing as well to my seals and it definitely helped. I just got some small diameter clear water tubing from the big orange box and used that.

Yessir. Sorry I shouldn’t assume my jargon is easily understood. In their water and irrigation section they have it in rolls of maybe 10 feet or so. Can’t remember exactly it’s been a couple years.
