Window Seals?

My 99 has driver and passenger window seals that are deformed and rotted letting in wind noise. Dealer wants $150 each. Are there any aftermarket options that are a bit more cost efficient?

run 3/16 or 1/4in vynyl tubing throughout the door seals. Worked great for me...(dorr seal mod).

I have done that. Also Snowman mod and hush panels. That was how I realized how noisy my window channels/seals were.

Use silicone tubing instead of vinyl tubing, it doesn't get as hard in the cold.

Yep. I used latex (surgical) tube.
