would an extra piece of rubber weatherstripping do anything to reduce it too?

I had that too, had my dealership spend a day working on it, ultimately they couldn't make it any better, said they'd need to replace all the weatherstripping to try to make it better, had to order it, etc., when we can get weatherstripping from a salvage yard. Ultimately just not worth it, I live with it. The alignment of the door and latch have been adjusted to make sure it shuts tightly, but it still leaks wind noise. I gave up.

Mine has that same wind noise from the passenger side. According to the warranty history I got from a former member, it'* been in for it a couple of times. I just deal with it since I can't get anyone to narrow down where it'* really coming from for me.

It seems like every H/C body from the 90'* generation does the same thing too, Al the seals look tight as can be though!

I am still looking to reduce the road noise comming from the rear of the vehicle. It has the goodyear asurance quiet style tires on it, si idk why it lets in so much road noise, although I can be extremely picky about that sort of thing, I want my sound system to sound better too by having less road noise. So does this DYNAMAT stuff work all that well?

yes, dynamat works great, however there are much less expensive substitutes that are just as affective
