    Replacing the gasket will help, but the majority of the wind noise is from the mirror and just the general design of the door.  When these trucks were made, things like wind noise were not a concern with trucks.

    Yea, then new seals are the best option unless the glass is damaged.
    Thanks,

    clean the mating surfaces of gasket and glass well with windex til smooth.  get a dime and use it as a shim to close the vent window a little more firmly.  all 4 of my trucks have this mod- works great.  One was a little stubborn and I used silicone grease in one spot on that one- DO NOT USE silicone grease if you plan on painting it anytime soon.  You'll get epic fisheye

    Some butthole broke into my truck thru the vent window and stole my radio! So now I have a leaky window and no way to drown out the noise! They took my Van Halen cassette tape too! Damn buttholes!

    Same thing happened to me back in '88 with my first Trailduster. The rear hatch didn't even have a handle on it so it could not lock. They broke the wing window anyway. They got the stereo and the loose speakers.

    It can be done but would require customs upper seal , window sweeps, glass guides and glass .
    High end custom shops do it all the time with older hot-rods, muscle cars , and trucks .
