Sound dampening

I have a 97 CCLB and going to replace a floor panel and while im there also going to lay down some type of sound dampening material. How do I eliminate/reduce the amount of wind noise from the doors?? The noise drives me insane and I have tried the 3/4 inch stick on weather stripping as well but no help..

Thank you for your input and all your help.

I don't know about this but I read in a diesel mag that if you put Vaseline on your door seals, they will swell and that may help you a little. Seems to me like something a shady car trader would do as opposed to replacing door seals but may as well give it a go.

Make sure the door hinge pins are good and that the doors are aligned properly. Some guys use 3/8" (I think) round foam backer rod fished through the door seals (internally). The stuff is usually available at your local home improvement center. Cheers!
